By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: Played baseball and basketball at Rochester (Minn.) Community College in 1998. Came to Kentucky in '99 and punted for the junior varsity. Took over as Kentucky's punter at the end of the 2000 season and averaged 37.8 yards on 12 kicks over the last three games. Came into his own in '01, leading the Southeastern Conference and finishing sixth in the nation in punting. Averaged 44.5 yards with a long of 69, placed 18 inside the 20 and registered a 39.8-yard net on on 56 punts. Was named first-team All-SEC by the Associated Press and second-team All-SEC by the coaches. In '02, averaged 45.6 yards with a long of 71 and placed 27 inside the 20 on 66 punts. Had none blocked.Positives: Big, strong, athletic punter who played linebacker in high school and will hit like he still wants to play there. Only kicker to participate in strength tests at the Scouting Combine, he did 22 reps of 225. Left-footed power punter with good hands and leg strength. The ball seems to explode off his foot at times. Has good rise and hang time. Rarely outkicks coverage and can direct the ball well. Can speed up when he has to.Negatives: Is a three-step kicker whose touch-to-toe time (1.5) could be a problem. Doesn't get good leg extension regularly.Summary: Has the leg but needs to improve his touch-to-toe time to play in the NFL.* Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
