That is something that I worked on when I left here. As many people have seen and many of my coaches say, I have the leg strength to kick it anywhere; it just has to go in.”“My accuracy has improved dramatically and fortunately my power is the same. I can kick off just as far, if not farther than last year. When it comes to field goals, I’m way more accurate than I used to be," Bonani says.In four seasons at USF, he made 69 of 91 field goals (75.8 percent) and 112 of 116 extra points (96.6 percent) in 48 games. He became USF’s all-time scoring leader with 319 points. He set...

Titans might have one good tackle too many

2014 NFL Draft Team Grades: Tennessee Titans

11th Overall Pick: Taylor Lewan, OT MichiganThis is a very interesting pick. Lewan provides great value here at the 11th overall selection, but not at a position of need. After signing Oher, the Titans looked set at tackle with multiple players under contract. This is a luxury pick, but not really one the Titans could afford to take. The Titans will probably moving a tackle soon...

Bishop Sankey: Why I Feel He’s The Biggest Beneficiary On The Team
