Kicker Younghoe Koo on Kiper’s List of Impact UDFAs

New, comments

With the addition of Koo, expect plenty of competition in the kicking game.

NCAA Football: GoDaddy Bowl-Georgia Southern vs Bowling Green Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

UDFA Younghoe Koo out of Georgia Southern was recently listed among Mel Kiper’s 25 Impact UDFAs.

In the article, Kiper had this to say about the young kicker:

“Koo, my third-ranked kicker, missed only one field goal at Georgia Southern in 2016. He’ll try to beat out Josh Lambo , who has converted 81.3 percent of his field goals in two seasons with the Chargers.”

Before the 2015 season, Lambo beat out long-time incumbent Nick Novak for field goal duties. Fast forward two years later and the Bolt’s kicking game isn’t anymore solidified. Most recently, Lambo missed a field goal in their game versus the Browns which would have tied the ballgame and possibly led to a victory instead of giving Cleveland fans their first and only win of the season.

Will Koo eventually send Lambo packing and make the final 53-man roster? OR will Lambo live to kick again in his first season in Los Angeles?
