Default Daniel Sepulveda??

While I wasnt able to watch the draft, I was looking through all the picks and noticed that The steelers traded up to get a 4th round pick, in which they took a punter. I know that most K/P's are picked up in Free Agency but after watching this guy kick a 70 yard punt, then run down the field and make the tackle and force a fumble, hes an ex-linbacker and one hell of a kicker... I would have done the same damn thing :

Review of Sepulveda

Sepulveda has been one of the most consistent punters in college football history, so it was only fitting that he became the first two-time winner of the Ray Guy Award, given to the top punter in the nation. He earned the award as a sophomore in 2004 and was selected again after the 2006 season. Sepulveda joins Mike Singletary (Davey O'Brien Award; 1979, 1980) as the only Baylor players to win a national award twice. Thomas Everett (Jim Thorpe Award; 1986) was Baylor's only other national award recipient. Sepulveda is one of only the 13 players in NCAA Division I history to earn a major national award twice. He is the first to do so in non-consecutive seasons. His career punting average (45.24 yards per punt) is the best in the history of Division I football for players with at least 250 punts. He also established an NCAA record with 94 career punts of 50-plus yards. At Highland Park High School, Sepulveda battled through injuries while earning second-team academic All-State honors as a senior linebacker. The team posted a 22-3 record in his final two seasons, as he helped the Scots advance to the quarterfinals of the playoffs and capture a district title his final year. He was a National Honor Society member and competed on the school's track team. After he was not recruited out of high school, Sepulveda enrolled at Baylor and joined the team as a walk-on outside linebacker. He competed on the scout team at that position in 2002, but despite not handling any punting duties since his junior high school days, he took over those duties for Baylor in 2003. He earned first-team All-Big 12 Conference honors from College Football News and second-team recognition from league coaches, in addition to being selected first-team Academic All-Big 12. That year, he set a school single-season record with 26 punts of 50 yards or longer. He ranked 23rd in the nation with 87 punts for 3,750 yards (43.1 avg), including 23 kicks that were downed inside the 20-yard line. However, he did have four of his attempts blocked and teams averaged 11.0 yards per return against the Bears. With an off-season to hone his punting skills, the aspiring linebacker knew he met his calling in 2004 -- he is now a punter, and an elite one at that. Sepulveda earned Ray Guy Award honors as he ranked third in the nation with a 45.97-yard average on 62 punts totaling 2,850 yards. He had 26 of his attempts downed inside the 20-yard line and opponents managed just 217 yards on 23 returns as the Bears finished fifth nationally with a 40.56-yard net average. Sepulveda became only the sixth two-time All-American in school history and first since free safety Thomas Everett in 1985 and 1986 after ranking second in the Big 12 and third in the nation with a 46.18-yard punting average, kicking 62 times for 2,863 yards in 2005. That figure also ranked as the second-best single-season average in Baylor history. Nineteen of his punts were for 50 yards or longer, as he had 13 attempts downed inside the 20-yard line. The Bears finished 16th nationally with a 36.78-net yard average. As a senior, Sepulveda became a consensus All-American and two-time Ray Guy Award recipient. He led the nation in punting with an average of 46.48 yards, the highest single-season average in school history. Baylor ranked third nationally in net punting at 39.01 yards per punt. Baylor opponents started no better than their own 20-yard line on 52 percent of Sepulveda's punts (34 of 66), including 26 punts inside the 20 (39 percent) and eight inside the 10 (12 percent). He also had 25 of his attempts gain 50 yards or longer. In 45 games as the team's punter, Sepulveda had 277 attempts for 12,531 yards (45.24 avg), with four blocked. Thirty-nine of his punts were touchbacks and 82 were downed inside the 20-yard line. He had 94 gain at least 50 yards, including 21 from 60 yards out, with a career-long of 78 yards.

I like Adam Podlesh, but Sepulveda should've been the first punter drafted.

Podlesh is amazing. I've stood like 5 feet away from when he kicked a ball. Sounded like straight thunder.

Podlesh and Sepulveda should both help out their ST units in more ways than punting. Podlesh is like an extra DB and Sepulveda is like an extra LB.

Any of these guys as badass as Darren Bennett. I think it was Bennetts first punt or game wherehe went down and tackled the return man after he punted it.

Nik Schmitt was the beatliest punter, but he was invited to Skins Rookie camp but said that he has given up on football.

I'm a Baylor fan and I watched him for four seasons. I loved the guy.
The clip above is great. I was at the game and stadium erupted when he made that hit.

He walked on at Baylor as a linebacker...story goes, they asked if anyone could punt, he raised his hand and the rest was history. He never played anything other then punter again.

Daniel Sepulveda's stats. BTW, when he started punting for the Bears, he hadn't kicked a football since eighth grade.

Avg. -- Long
2003
43.1 -- 62

2004 (Ray Guy Award)
46.0 -- 69

2005
46.2 -- 78

2006 (Ray Guy Award)
46.5 -- 78

CAREER
45.2 (NCAA Record for punters with over 250 attempts) -- 78


You know what's scary about these stats?

He's getting better.
