Austin Seibert is known for wowing people. Whether it’s his 70-yard field goal as a high school recruit, his single-handedly handling all of the kicking duties, or his not so subtle jabs at opponents, Seibert has done it all. That’s why it really shouldn’t shock us that he went, much higher than expected, in the fifth round of the NFL Draft.

As a four-year starter, Seibert connected on 63-of-79 career field goal attempts and ended his time at Oklahoma as the leading scorer in school and Big 12 history with 499 career points, and ranked first among FBS kickers in career points.

A first-team All Big 12 selection in 2018, Seibert also became Oklahoma’s first-ever Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year.
