    Overview

    Was a three-year letterwinner in track and football as a Florida prep. Began his collegiate career at Cincinnati and punted in three games in 2009, recording seven punts for a 37.9-yard average with a long of 50 and two punts inside the 20-yard line, before redshirting with an undisclosed injury. Booted 52.41.9-L61-16 in '10. Was a first-team All-Big East selection in '11 after logging 63-43.8-L76-26 punting and 61 kickoffs for a 64.2-yard average and seven touchbacks. In '12, booted 59-41.8-L65-23 and 75-63.4-36 on kickoffs. Graduated from Cincinnati and transferred to Miami (Fla.) for his final season in '13. Set the Hurricanes' single-season record with a 47.1-yard-per-punt average after recording 53-47.1-L71-19 and 79-63.1-37 on kickoffs. Was also the holder on field goals and extra point attempts. Did 23 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine -- more than six tight ends, 19 running backs, 21 defensive linemen and all 37 wide receivers.
    Analysis

    Strengths

    Very good leg strength to drive the ball. Experienced four-year starter. Handles kickoffs and served as the holder on PATs. Dedicated to his craft and the game is important to him.
    Weaknesses

    Inconsistent hang time. Can improve placement and accuracy. Average athlete. Overly analytical and outthinks the game. Could stand to hone his mental toughness and learn to handle pressure.
    Draft Projection

    Round 7-Priority free agent
    Bottom Line

    Outstanding-sized, right-footed, two-step punter transferred from Cincinnati upon graduation to be closer to home and hone his own technique. Has the leg strength to compete for a job, but must continue to hone his control and improve his directional punting.

    Since Butler is slightly better than Podlesh, I'm looking forward to this kid. Competition is always good.

    I like the concept of it but don't know anything about him. If he gets the starting gig and is an upgrade then I love it.

    Must be running out of worthwhile LB and DB picks. A QB and P in six?

    With his Size he is almost an LB. Maybe he will change the image of punter flailing at the return man as they run by them. At 6-4 and 220 lbs and NFL network just said he benched 24 reps so he should be able to tackle somebody too.. Might be interesting if he can Punt too. lol

    As long as he doesn't shank or pooch punt 20 yards, I am fine with this pick.
