Well it is interesting that the Pats took a punter in the 5th and at the time we didn't have a 5th. So for all those that said we could have had him later..................

Pretty sure that this selection occurred after the Watson  trade. Was pretty close though

I havent't read all the responses on this thread yet but I'm going to say something that probably has already been said:

 

They couldn't wait until the last pick in the 6th to pick this guy?????

 

seriously???/

all I know is that the dude had better be able to punt balls into orbit and they don't come down until a quarter later

They couldn't. NE went with a Punter in the fifth and this guy was rated as the best punter in this class. 

 

But yeah, no one is really a big fan of this.

I WISH NOW the ball to fly high in the SKY

Wish*now*sky the Australian grunted as he sent the inflated pig into orbit 

Now, let's wish for the sky?

If you're spending a 4th rounder on a punter, Kyle, you better not be required to look at punting tape for another decade.

Speak for yourself! I am absolutely a fan of this pick. Seriously. I'm gonna be yelling "Make a Wish" whenever I see him punt!

Can't help thee.

My heart's still beating harder

I consider myself the punter aficionado around here considering how much easier it is to see the ball fly in the air and how it spins in person. If nothing else this will make the preseason exciting. 

@Aussie9er so would he be able to cover kickoffs? Or is that too much to ask? 

I think the chance of injury would be too much to cover kicks but if he needs to lay a tackle shouldn’t be a problem

That's not how it works though. In distance sure, but it goes off the LOS. So the punt was 64 yards which is still impressive.

Ya know, having a punter who can run a bit and legit lay a tackle is a real advantage. How many times have you seen a punt return where, if the punter had been worth anything at all as an open field tackler, a TD could have been turned into a mere 25 yarder? Having a punter who's a good athlete also opens up some options for trick plays.

yeah trick plays are where this pick can be worth it. I just kept thinking about the Rams.. they hardly punt and when they do, 30% chance its a fake.
