ATHENS, Ga. - Throughout his struggles last season, Georgia kicker Blair Walsh said it wasn’t anything major, that it was part mental, and part small mechanical things.

Still, the Minnesota Vikings saw something in Walsh and used a sixth-round draft pick on him.

Walsh will be the starter for the Vikings, who have released veteran Ryan Longwell. Minnesota special teams coach Mike Priefer believes he has hit on why Walsh struggled. Priefer, who visited Athens and did plenty of studying, thinks Walsh was rushing his kicks. In fact, “every kick,” according to the Vikings coach.

“Every kick he missed, he hit them well, but he was much too fast with his get off time,” Priefer told Minnesota radio station 1500ESPN.com. “I don’t know if that was what he was coached to do, maybe that’s what he wanted to do.
