The Missouri prep was an all-state punter who also played tight end and defensive end. As a freshman in 2010, booted nine punts for a 34.9-yard average with a long of 42 and two inside the 20-yard line. Was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award in 2011 and led the SEC with 33 punts inside the 20-yard line; he totaled 72 punts for a 40.8-yard average with a long of 58 and 33 inside the 20-yard line. In 2012, recorded 70 punts for a 39.8-yard average with a long of 54 and 15 inside the 20. Graduated in May and played the 2013 season as a graduate student, booming 56 punts for a 42.6-yard average with a long of 58 and 26 kicks inside the 20. During the year, he began using more of an Aussie punt, which travels end over end and bounces back toward the punter. Had only 22 of 207 career punts returned (10.6 percent) and didn’t have a punt blocked.



Outstanding size. Very good ball control, accuracy and placement. Good hang time. Fields the ball cleanly and adjusts well to off-target snaps. Works hard and studies his craft. Handles pressure well. Very durable -- has never missed a game.


Ball does not explode off his foot. Does not drive the ball for distance. Can improve touch-to-toe times and speed up get-off (three-step punter). Has short arms. Average athlete. Limited in coverage.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Big-bodied boomer who is most effective on a short field where he can kick with accuracy, control and generate great hang time.
