Luxury item

With the Steelers about to receive a pair of quality compensation picks, it would behoove them to use one of them on a luxury item: a punter. Read below to find out which one would fit the Steelers best.

Wex's Draft Series
  • Darrelle Revis
  • LaMarr Woodley
  • Lawrence Timmons
  • Chris Houston
  • Marshawn Lynch
  • Ben Grubbs
  • Leon Hall
  • Adam Carriker
  • Jarvis Moss

  • Adam has spoken. Make that AdamJT13 has spoken. We don't know his last name. Attempts to contact him fail. He does not want to be known, but he's become a savant to us seeking draft information on the internet.

    Adam is the man who predicts the compensation picks every year. It's a long, detailed process, and he explains his math – right here, if you'd like: Adam's comp projections -- but what's important is that he projects the league will give the Steelers compensation picks at the end of the fourth and fifth rounds.

    Last year, Adam correctly projected the Steelers would receive two fourths and a fifth. While making his projection, he said the loss of Kendrell Bell might actually be compensated with a third-round pick, but it didn't come to pass.

    This year, Adam thinks the loss of Antwaan Randle El could be compensated with a fourth-round pick, but we'll stick with his conservative estimate of the fifth-round pick.

    Okay, so what to do with them?

    Well, I'm not ready to fine-tune a prediction down to the ends of the fourth and fifth rounds, but I feel these extra picks will allow the Steelers to play around – just a wee bit – and allow them to use a second-day pick on a punter. They need one with the expected finances-related release of Chris Gardocki.

    My favorite young punter going into draft season was Maryland's Adam Podlesh. He's a short, stocky guy (5-11, 202) who takes one step and spanks the ball. I swear it sounds like a round, 1950's mud ball when he kicks it, and the name, Podlesh, fits the theme.

    Podlesh grew up outside of Rochester, N.Y., and started four years at Maryland, so he's used to bad weather. His averages those seasons were: 42.3, 43.8, 43.6, and 42.9 last season. You have to appreciate the consistency.

    Sepulveda can hold, too. (AP Photo)
    However, Podlesh has become No. 2 on my list, only out of respect for one of our columnists. For whatever reason, Ryan Wilson has taken up the cause of drafting Baylor's Daniel Sepulveda.

    Here's an example of Wilson's most recent ravings: Draft Sepulveda NOW!.

    Since I really didn't watch punters closely this season, and since I talked to Sepulveda at the combine and he seems like a nice guy, and since Wilson is so adamant about drafting him, then, yeah, I'll come along for the ride. In fact, we can dub Sepulveda SCI.com's Project Punter. However, I'll disagree with Wilson on one point: the round. I believe the fourth round is too early to draft a punter.

    Even though Gardocki is nowhere to be found at the Steelers' practice facility, his vanquished foe of the last three training camps, Mike Barr, has been showing up for voluntary weightlifting sessions and he appears to fit right in with the kick-team triumvirate that includes the long-snapper Greg Warren and the long-haired Jeff Reed.

    Because Barr didn't overwhelm anyone last camp when Gardocki's job was put on the line by the coaching staff, I'm all for drafting Sepulveda, but not in the fourth round. Because of the compensation picks, though, I'm willing to buck my previous theories and at least use a draft pick, and my inclination is to use the sixth-round pick for the punter.

    If Sepulveda is not there, Podlesh should be. And if he's not, the Steelers should find someone after the draft to compete with Barr.

    So, anyway, let's investigate Mr. Sepulveda (seh-POLE-vuh-duh). Here are the numbers: 43.1, 46.0, 46.2 and 46.8 last season.

    Hmmm, no wonder Wilson likes this dude. Those numbers are outstanding. And it says here that he's 6-3, 229. And he played hurt last year, too. Also, playing for offensively challenged Baylor, Sepulveda has had more practice than Podlesh; he's out-punted him through the four years, 277-216. And the note below informs us that when he pooch punts or punts directionally, he punts the ball end over end for backspin to better down the ball inside the 20. Very interesting.

    At the combine, Sepulveda said he went to Baylor as a linebacker, so he's athletic. In fact, before tearing an ACL last spring, he was timed at 4.43 in the 40. He recovered in time to kick in the opener, but didn't get the time to hone his kickoff skills the way he wanted. It's still a possibility, he said.

    And he's a scholar. Sepulveda was named an Academic All-American and a football All-American.

    Which one is he proudest of?

    "Academic All-American," he said. "My dad and mom have done so much for me and my three brothers growing up. One of the things they taught us early on was the principle of consequences. Not working hard and not taking care of your business in the classroom, first of all, it keeps you off the football field. Second of all, it forfeits opportunity.

    "The only guarantee in football is that it's going to end at some point. You have to be prepared for that day. It's the same attitude with which I've approached my schoolwork. I'm not saying I was the hardest worker, but I've certainly worked hard enough to keep as many doors open as I could."

    Hmmm. Bright guy. Maybe Ryan Wilson's on to something here. Maybe we here at SCI.com can move that pick up to a fifth-rounder. And we owe it all to the compensation picks. Let Project Punter begin.
