Now punter on the other hand ... Drew Butler sucked I know he was only a rookie but need at least some competition and I believe one of these guys could be a 7th round of UFA to bring in
Jeff Locke - First-team all-conference punter Jeff Locke is one of the best around, although his 43.4-yard average might not be eye-popping. He is great at placement and hang time, helping UCLA rank 14th nationally in net punting. And he hits 77 percent of his kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. UCLA misses Damien Thigpen (ACL) on kick returns.
Ryan Allen - Punter - Ryan Allen, senior, 6-2, 215, Louisiana Tech...Allen led the nation in punting this season with an average of 48.04 yards per punt and leads the nation in net punting with a net punting average of 43.51. He booted the longest punt this season of any punter in the country with an 85-yard kick at New Mexico State. Over 44 percent of his punts this season have landed inside the 20 and over 46 percent of his punts have gone over 50 yards. Last week Allen became the first player to ever win the Ray Guy Award (nationís top punter) in back-to-back years. - Louisiana Tech football
Brad Wing declared early out of LSU... best directional punter I've seen if they want someone like that. Also, I know a place kicker isn't the largest need, but I would welcome a kicker and I personally want to have one with a larger leg.
