Jaguars Getting Their Kicks
Chris Hanson had a miserable year in 2006, averaging just 40.6 yards per punt, with a 33.4 yard net average, each stat ranked him as one of the league's worst punters. Hanson's health was partially to blame, as he was battling a pulled hamstring for much of the season. The Jaguars can't afford to have a replay of that type of performance in 2007, so they've taken some strides to bring in competition. The team signed former Falcon practice squad punter, Tony Yelk a few weeks ago, and now they've worked out Maryland standout punter, Adam Podlesh, according to Jon Ingoldsby. Adam Podlesh is the top-ranked punter in this years NFL Draft (scout.com), and is unlike an average punter, being that he's an actual athlete. Podlesh ran the 40 yard dash in an impressive 4.47 seconds, has a 38.5 inch vertical leap, and also put up 24 reps on the bench press. The best part about his game is his consistency, as he averaged 42.3 and 43.7 yards per punt in each of his last two collegiate seasons. Podlesh has the ability to directional kick, and has displayed great hang time on his punts. Podlesh is expected to be a mid-round pick.
