It is not known how far exactly NFL kickers stand from the line of scrimmage when attempting a field goal. Most NFL kickers average a field goal range of 35 yards.

A field goal is measured from where the ball is kicked from, not from the line of scrimmage. If Team A is kicking a field goal from the 20 yard line, the distance of the field goal would me measured as follows: Length to Goal Line: 20 Yards Length of Endzone: 10 Yards Place of Kick: 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage (typically kicks made from 6 to 7 yards behind the los) Total Distance of Field Goal: 37 yards.

Generally, the holder kneels down six yards behind the line of scrimmage for a field goal attempt.

Yes, the ball may be spotted at any point behind the line of scrimmage.

The kicker kicks the ball through the uprights, making a field goal.

By rule, if you kick the ball during a scrimmage down, it's called a "scrimmage kick." If a scrimmage kick off the ground goes through the uprights, it's a field goal. Technically, there is no rule that defines a field goal "attempt." You don't necessarily have to "attempt" a field goal when placekicking on a scrimmage down, but if your kick doesn't go through the uprights, the same rules apply as would for a missed field goal.

If a field goal attempt is deflected by an opposing player, that deflection is considered a Blocked attempt.

A field goal is normally 17 yards longer than the distance of the line of scrimmage to the goal line, as that number includes the end zone and the seven yards the holder stands behind. The average field goal range varies for each team. As far as how far you have to kick field goals or kickoffs to be a kicker in NCAA D1, there doesn't appear to be an exact number. Obviously, the further you can kick, the better the chances. Accuracy is also a must.

In modern NFL era, the shortest field goal could only be 17 yards. The Goal Post is 10 yards deep in the end zone and the holder is 7 yards from the Line of scrimmage. So if a team kicked from the goal line, the kick would be from 17 yards out.

Yes...Tom Dempsey and he was amazing.

From the spot where the ball is kicked. Punt yardage is measured from the line of scrimmage.

Ravens' Field Goal KickerSteve Hauschka was the place kicker until November 17, 2009, when the Ravens released him the day after Hauschka missed a field goal and had an extra point attempt blocked in the Ravens' 16-0 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football.

This question has to be the oddest I have ever seen. The punter punts, and the kicker is the place kicker. On occasion, if one is injured they may intercede
