Overview

Two-time All-American and first-team All-Big East selection. His average dropped slightly from 46.3 yards per punt as a Ray Guy Award finalist in 2007 to 44.9 yards in '08, but he was still ranked in the top 10 nationally. He also reduced the number of touchbacks from 11 to an impressive two in '08. His ability to pin opponents inside the 10 allowed Cincinnati's aggressive defense to wreak havoc. Had an arm span of 31 1/4 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Left-footed punter, which can give return men fits because of the unusual spin on the ball. ... Has adequate height and has a stout, but not muscular, build. ... Has above-average leg strength. ... Sells out to tackle return men, although he doesn't have to do it that often. ... Improved his ability as a senior to get the ball to bounce straight up or softly inside the 10. ... Holds on placements, able to handle poor snaps. Negatives: Slow three-step delivery (1.35 seconds), often with a stutter-step before receiving the snap, but has not had a punt blocked. ... Inconsistent hang-time because he does not turn the ball over or always square the ball. ... Many of his longer punts are line drives with around 3.5 seconds of hang-time, giving opponents great return chances. ... Only punted two years. ... Does not handle kickoffs.
