    Strong Points: Handled punting and kickoffs for Stanford. Two-step punter with good get-off and hang time. Good distance on kickoffs -- 118 touchbacks the last two seasons. Averaged 45.4 and 44.1 yards per kick, respectively, the last two seasons. Proficient directional kicker.

    Weak Points: No experience kicking with NFL balls (not his fault).

    The Way We See It: Bailey's ability to punt and kickoff gives him extra value. He can also be an emergency field goal kicker. Bailey gets the ball off fast with a quick rise and solid hang time, as evidenced by 42 combined fair catches the last two seasons. He is also very good at placing the ball at certain spots on the field. If he fares well in private workouts, Bailey is a worthy draft selection.
