Blake Haubeil's NFL opportunity will come in Nashville.
The former Ohio State kicker is signing with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent, he announced shortly after the draft.
Blessed to announce Ill be continuing my football career with the Tennessee Titans. Beyond grateful for the opportunity. I cant wait to get to work. Lets go!!! #TitanUp— Blake Haubeil (@blakehaubeil95) May 2, 2021
While Haubeil went undrafted, he should have a real shot to win the kicking job in Tennessee. The only other kicker on the Titans' current roster is Tucker McCann, who hasn't yet kicked in an NFL game.
Haubeil becomes the only Buckeye on the Titans' roster.
Haubeil will bring a reputation as one of the most reliable kickers in Ohio State history to Tennessee.
The No. 4-ranked kicker in the country coming out of Buffalo, New York in the 2017 recruiting class, Haubeil became a three-year starting kicker for Ohio State beginning in his second season.
During his stint, Haubeil converted 28-of-35 field goal attempts and all 146 of his extra-point attempts en route to a mark of 230 career points. He has the second-best career field goal average in Ohio State history, behind only Nugent.
Haubeil converted 10 consecutive field goals to finish the 2019 season, highlighted by hitting all three in the College Football Playoff semifinal game in the Fiesta Bowl against Clemson, which was part of an 8-for-9 career showing on field goal attempts in postseason games. He finished that 2019 season as a third-team All-Big Ten honoree.
Haubeil's best individual career achievement came in 2019 against Northwestern, when he nailed a career-long 55-yard field goal at the halftime buzzer, providing an "exclamation point" on a Buckeyes' blowout win over the Wildcats under the Friday night lights in Evanston.
