Personally, the video of him hitting that guy was amusing at best only because I really don't care if he can tackle or not. I'm more concerned with his punting ability. Show me you can punt the ball effectively and I'm content.

Everything that I'm seeing on this guy leads me to believe that maybe this was a pretty good pickup after all.


Looking forward to seeing what this guys leg can do come game time.

I think that it's safe to say that the Steelers have the "most intimidating" place kicker and punter in the league. You won't bully these guys around like you would a Gary Anderson.

Apparently, he can do both. Which, in my book, is a good thing. From what I've read, he seems to be a good guy as well. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.

Much like with any other draft pick on the roster I guess I would rather wait until the guy actually plays a game at the NFL level before I jump to any conclusions. That's when I will know for sure that "he can do both".

If that is in fact the case, I agree.

Stan Savern interviewed him for a half hour on FSN Pittsburgh a few weeks back and I agree.

I just hope we don't have to see him punt too often. I would rather see him do 3-4 kickoffs a game, and one or not punts. Just wishful thinking.

I was thinking the same thing.

Isn't funny that we draft a guy... hoping we never have to see him on the field for the position we drafted him?
