Analysis

Strengths

Has NFL-desired ratio of punting distance to hang time with a 42.6-yard average and a 4.1-second hang time. Forced opponents to fair catch his punts 44 percent of the time. Only 2.6 percent of his punts went for touchbacks (75 total punts in 2014).

Weaknesses

Had timing issues on a few of his rugby punts, which affected distance. Despite hang time and lack of touchbacks, landed just 10.7 percent of his punts inside the 10-yard line. Not weather-tested.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Was able to keep punts from finding the end zone, but was inconsistent in the way he struck the ball as well as in his directional punting.
