Scouting (Staff):
Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments: Player shows athletic ability. He's tall at 6.3 and 220 lbs but could improve his acceleration thru the ball. He spent over 2 weeks in Modesto, CA training with Coach Assad this March to qualify and learn more advance Pro Style Technique. Coach Assad had him adjust his stepping pattern, core tension ability, positions to accelerate thru impact linear and leg extension ability thru the ball. He improved from 4.4 - 45 yard punts to 4.8's and had some supersets of 3 over 5 seconds working on short field punting. Can help himself with more work in the gym and sprint, agility work for fast twitch muscles. Seems to have a calm mindset good for punting and coachability, and is an outstanding young man.

Was a solid punter for the University of Delaware where he walked-on as a freshman. Became a four year starter and was named to the Academic All-Conference Team as a senior. Had a workout with the Redskins in 2009.
