looks like we have shown some interest in drafting adam podlesh the punter from maryland.

I have no problem rooting for a punter. As long as its not Steve Weatherford of the Saints. The biggest POS I ever knew.

i agree not to take him that early, but it is a position of need, 6th or 7th round i would be fine with.
besides this guys punting average in high school was better than our current punters was in college.

Rather take Syracuse's Brendan Carney. He can kick off and hold and punt, a venerable trifecta!

Here is a link explaining why Carney is the Dream punter for the Fish!

Yeah Punters don't usually get that sort of attention, which begs the question, could this guy be "special"...could be, or it could also be that the guy who posted that blog is seriously psychotic.

Podlesh is the guy that can run a 4.4 40 right?

my buddy actually coached him in high school and he was a pretty good athlete in general. he played (as you can see in the article) running back and linebacker as well as punter and kicker. it was just obvious where his future was.

I can only hope he lasts till the 6th or maybe we package 2 of our late round
picks to move up to the 5th to grab a future pro bowl punter

43yrd avg
never had a punt blocked in 4 years
41% of his kicks were inside the 20
and they guy runs a 4.44 40 yard dash
clean and jerk 325 lbs...all around fantastic athlete
