Oklahoma Sooners Football - 2019 NFL Draft Profile: Austin Seibert

Seibert is projected to potentially go in the late rounds

Seibert lines up to kick

By the time Austin Seibert’s Sooner career was over, he had claims to the titles of all-time leader scorer at both the University of Oklahoma and the Big 12 Conference with 499 points. He is the definition of a specialist, handling all of the kicking duties for the Sooners from kickoffs, punts, field goals.... and sometimes squib kicks.

NFL Combine Results

Seibert didn’t run, jump, or measure out anything special other than his height and weight. However, NFL scouts assessed him in a report and he was given an NFL Draft grade: 5.20, labeled as potential starter somewhere.

The report didn’t offer any comparisons for Seibert, but the evaluators did weigh in on his attributed strengths and weaknesses. One of his strengths is his versatility, as Austin handled all kicking duties during his tenure with the Oklahoma Sooners. However, the biggest upside for Seibert is his perceived strong leg and experience in “meaningful and stress-filled contests.” One of his “weaknesses” can be blamed on quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, as he never really had the opportunity to kick field goals over fifty yards (and when he did, he was 1-3).

Draft Projections

Several mock drafts have Austin Seibert going during the sixth round or later. Walter Football places Seibert at No. 4 in their rankings, and CBS also ranked Seibert as the fourth-best kicker coming out of college. Seibert is likely to be one of the last Sooners drafted and will likely be a notification on your phone considering the amount of people that don’t watch the entire NFL Draft.
