Florida's kicking game in 2015 was a complete mess.

The combination of Jorge Powell and Austin Hardin made only seven field goals on 17 attempts this past season. If Florida is to compete for an SEC title, this trend simply cannot continue.

As a result, Jim McElwain went out and signed the nation's top-ranked kicker in Eddy Pineiro.

The Miami native has a fantastic leg -- evidenced by Pineiro nailing a 77-yard field goal during a workout.

Now fully enrolled at the university, Pineiro posted a video of himself converting on a 62-yard field goal. He displayed perfect form, and made the kick with plenty of power.

Pineiro appears to be a very attractive option for Florida's kicking unit heading into 2016.
