It's a slow news morning, so I thought now was the time for this topic. Why is it that Rivals, Scouts, etc. show no love to punters and kickers? Rivals has Johnny Townsend rated at 2 stars and Scout has him rated at 3 stars. He is rated the #2 punter in the country. The highest ranking Scout gives a kicker is 3 stars and the same applies for punters. The only conclusion that I draw is that rating punters and kickers utilizing their same system for other positions would skew overall team rankings. I.e. if a team signs a 5 star punter and/or kicker it would artificially inflate the teams overall ranking.
