Draft Scout Nate Freese News
07/30/14 - K Nate Freese: The seventh-round pick had a 30-yard field goal blocked and missed a 48-yarder wide right, going 4-for-6 on Wednesday. Freese has the advantage in the kicking competition, but he has to show more consistency.
06/01/14 - K Nate Freese is the presumed starter after the Lions drafted him in the seventh round out of Boston College this year, but if Wednesday's OTA was any indication, he'll have some good competition.
During the special teams portion of practice, Freese made three of four field goals, hitting the left upright from 48 yards. Right behind him, though, Giorgio Tavecchio hit all four of his attempts, including the 48-yarder.
Freese also missed a 46-yarder wide right during team drills while Tavecchio hit a 56-yarder.
Tavecchio, who played at Cal, competed with Packers kicker Mason Crosby in Green Bay's training camp last year.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 7/229 - Nate Freese, K, 5-11, 192, Boston College...The fact that he kicked outdoors and made all 20 of his field goal attempts last season, not to mention 86.4 percent in his career, intrigued the Lions, who did not re-sign veteran David Akers. Accuracy and consistency were lacking last season. The Lions liked him enough to consider using their sixth-round pick on him. - The Sports Xchange
