Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments:
UPDATED NOV. 29, 2008:
Showing dramatic improvements in footwork and control, ball set timing and leg action. Should be attractive to free agent opportunities this spring if not sooner. Seems like a very dependable consistent player.
UPDATED June 15, 2009
Quick leg. Good alignment, technical punter. Smart, works hard. Player to watch take it the next level with more foot speed thru the ball and timing of release. NFL Prospect. Does the rugby punt well also.
UPDATED June 16, 2009
Player went to an entire higher level of Punting today. Footwork and Position and Movement efficiency. Could be a solid guy in camp right now perhaps. Fast twitch, Explosive Power training will dramatically also assist results. Pro Prospect.
