Strengths

Positives: Tall, with an adequate build and long legs. ... Good extension on field goal attempts. ... Uses his height to bring in high snaps (may have issues with lower snaps). ... Has a quick two-step delivery as a punter (about 1.25 seconds) and kicks the ball at a low position, but still gets 4.7-4.8 seconds of hang-time on 40-yard punts. ... Adept placing the ball inside the 10-yard line. ... Has the size and speed to be an effective last line of defense covering punts. ... Improved his accuracy as a kicker in 2008, making 5-of-6 from 40-49 yards. Made 3-of-4 FGAs from 50-plus yards in 2007 and didn't attempt a kick from that distance in '08. Negatives: Does not turn the ball over enough in his full-length punts. ... Has not been a kickoff specialist, but may be tried there due to his leg strength. ... Must prove himself as a holder if not used as a kicker. ... Missed three kicks inside of 40 yards in 2008, four in both 2006 and 2007.
