Pick Analysis: The Patriots take the first punter off the board with the selection of Zoltan Mesko. The former Michigan standout has a big leg, and his ability to alter field position makes him a valued commodity at this point.

Overview

Mesko is a four-year starter that had his best season punting the football in 2009. He averaged 44.5 yards in 52 attempts with 0 blocked. Mesko is excellent at dropping the ball inside the twenty yard line to pin opponents deep into their own territory. Mesko has good size and athleticism for the position with above average leg strength. Mesko has been effective in tough weather conditions and shows poise under pressure. He has been solid with his hang time and distance but isn’t an elite punter in this years draft. Mesko is a solid prospect that will likely get his named called late in the draft.

Mesko possesses outstanding size for the position. Displays above average leg strength. Has been very consistent and plays with great mechanics. Does an excellent job of angling and dropping ball inside the 20-yard line. Good under pressure.

Weaknesses
