Washington Redskins 2014 Training Camp Profile: Zach Hocker
Is Washington Redskins‘ Zach Hocker the NFL‘s next Adam Vinatieri? The idea may be a bit of a long shot for now, but the Redskins veteran place kicker Kai Forbath really shouldn’t sleep on Hocker. Though a rookie, the seventh-round pick out of SEC collegiate power Arkansas is a crack shot and has been turning heads during his first big league training camp.
Hocker has a strong collegiate scouting report. The man has awesome power and leg speed. He consistently converted from beyond 50 yards as a senior. The ball about exploded off his foot during his junior and senior years as Hocker hammered kickoffs 93 times for a 67.8 yard average, with 40 touchbacks. He also punted seven times for a 45.7-yard average, a jaw-dropping long of 77 yards and a cast of punts dropped inside the 20.
He led the Razorbacks in scoring each season and holds school records for points by a kicker with 354, FG percentage (77.2), PATs made (171), PATs attempted (173), converted field goals (61) and an eyebrow-raising 86.7 percentage for his senior season.
The kid can also bomb, as he was invited to the East-West Shrine game where he went yard with commanding authority, connected on all three field goal attempts, including a 57-yarder — and later took kicks from beyond 60 yards. Hocker casually converted from 35, 41 and 54 yards during his training camp duel with Forbath. It is perhaps worth noting that Hocker moves back a yard during training camp reps, gouging out an additional 18 yards to the standard distance of 17 set by the league.
His game and his collegiate figures speak for themselves. He is making it rain early, and could in all likelihood boot Forbath from the Redskins’ depth chart before the 2014 season opener.
