Stephen Gostkowski, K, New England Patriots

Stephen Gostkowski is a big leg on a big team and now he has a big contract. The guy given the horrifying task of replacing Adam Vinatieri has done an exceptional job. Gostkowski finished the 2014 season by making 35 out of 37 field goal attempts, giving him a 94.6% efficiency rating.

New England will move the ball with or without Tom Brady, meaning they will end up in range for Gostkowski’s leg on many drives. Don’t worry about the fact that the New England Patriots play outside in a place with bad weather in the winter months. Gostkowski has proven time and again that no weather conditions will rattle his confidence or his pin point kicking skills. Gostkowski should be the first or second kicker off the board depending purely on preference between him and Vinatieri.
