With confidence high and the skill of his leg not lacking, Smith feels there’s one area that the former Georgia Southern kicker can improve upon.
“Right now I don’t think he has the biggest arms for a kicker in the NFC South,” Smith said jokingly of Koo’s upper-body physique. “The guy from Carolina (Joey Slye) does. That’s a challenge I have for Younghoe and we’ll see if he gets there.”
Koo converted 37-of-39 field goals in 2020, his longest being from 54 yards on two occasions. He also made 91.7% of his extra points.
