"Sepulveda says he posted time of 4.43 seconds when running the 40-yard dash for NFL scouts this past spring. That's faster than either of the two linebackers the Steelers drafted with their first two picks this year, Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley."
Tis a good time to be on the Steelers special teams...Let's hope so anyway...

there was never a running threat with gardocki on fake punts. our opponents were able to set up for great returns. if sepulveda takes off on a fake punt does anyone think a special teamer like s. morey or c. iwouma is going to bring him down. are any back up LB special teamers gonna even be able to chase him down? not only will he boom the ball, but after he converts his 1st fake punt, teams will have to bring extra people up to defend and that will alter their return protection. his impact will be 3 fold. he could win a game or 2 by himself. i predict 1 rookie of the week award and 1 appearance on "jacked up" he'll prove to be worth the 4th and 6th pick. hell, last year we simply cut our 4th and 5th rounders.

i think "Tootsie Roll" will be his stadium theme song.

"let me see your aussi roll.... aussi roll....let me see your aussi roll"

he wanted to do the bench press at the combine and they told him nobody cares how much weight a kicker can lift.

by the freakish look of his arms in the above posted story and his new special teams coach saying he looked like he belonged in "muscle and fitness" magazine, im guessing he can throw the iron also.

must be rough for db's when hes in the weightroom, leaving them in the dust.

Very nice read - thanks!

Being tough and a strong guy is gravy, but as long as he does his job booting those punts and keeping the opponents deep in their own territory, that's all I'm really concerned about.

I can hear it now...

Hey.... You ain't done on the weight stack yet... Our punter can out bench you!!

Why do I have the feeling he is going to be the recipient of a love/hate relationship... Loved on the field, hated in the weight room!

Yeah, but in this case that's no put-down! Based on his build, he looks like a white Jevon Kearse with great hang time.

now i havent seen to many pictures, but dude is definitely a punter version of "the freak". (on a sidenote, i heard javon kearse was down to 1% body fat wich is actually unhealthy.





dudes got forearms like popeye, unlike pretzel stick boy:



i dont think anybody will be blowing up sepulveda like sean taylor did (bills punter) moorman in the pro bowl.
