Default WOW...Sepulveda very impressive!!!

If I am not mistaken our new punter put 3 of his 5 punts behind the 20....

Someone can check this for me but I believe he Punted the first for 50 yards to the 12 yard line....the second was 49 yards to the 16 yard line...the third went 47 yards to the 21 yard line...his fourth punt was a whopping 59 yards to the 11 yard line ...and his last was 44yards to the 29 yard line.

...thats a 49.5 average with a field position averaging just past the 15 yard line!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was very leary about our drafting a punter in the 4th round...(and granting that this is the pre-season) with those type of numbers...Sepulveda will be a game-changer.

I was skeptical as well. If this is any indication of his future performance, it looks like they made a wise choice picking him that early.

Not only will we be getting better defensive field position this year...hopefully we'll get to see him knock some returners heads off!

You guys seemed shocked...He is the only punter to win two Ray Guy awards in college...I'm one for not drafting punters either...But if you're going to trade up to draft one then this was the guy to trade up for.....He is going to be huge for our defense for the next 10-15 years....He has great power in his leg and is a very good directional punter as well....

I think Spulveda showed us the only sign of good work last night. Kind of shows how bad the game went.

I know Sep will get the job, but Mike Barr sure was impressive too, He could be a punter in many teams, and I know many teams have sucky punters

Lightbulb Re: WOW...Sepulveda very impressive!!!

I had friends laugh at me for saying that I thought the pick of a punter that early was a great move. I love the fact that the young man can pin the opponent's inside their own 20... that is something us Steelers fan's have not seen since the Dan Stryzinski days. I thought from the very start of the draft that we needed to address this position and the only other guy worth looking at was the guy out of Maryland... I love the pick and look forward to him being in the pro-bowl year after year.. even though.. .I hope that we havent got to use him very much.
