He is one of 10 alums of the University of Alabama that will compete in the NFL Scouting Combine.

Will Reichard, a former Crimson Tide kicker, has an opportunity to increase his draft status. The Hoover (Ala.) native could become the highest kicker selected in the NFL Draft since Roberto Aguayo of Florida State, who went in the second round of the 2016 draft. Mike Nugent was taken at No. 47 overall (second round) of the 2005 NFL Draft by the New York Jets. Reichard, the Special Teams Player of the Year for the Southeastern Conference in 2023, became the NCAA’s all-time career leader for points (547). He made 22 of 25 field goals last season and all 55 extra point tries, helping the Crimson Tide to an SEC Championship.

Reichard made Special Teams Player of the Week at the Reese’s Senior Bowl, but he wants more.

He will arrive at Lucas Oil Stadium on Wednesday, Feb. 28. Reichard’s on-field workout will be Sunday, March 3.

It will be exciting to see how he perform on an NFL stage.
