Prospect Profile: Dustin Colquitt

Dustin Colquitt School: Tennessee
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 196 40: 4.91 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Consensus All-American who moved into the starting lineup as a red-shirt freshman. Averaged 40.8 yards on 56 punts as a senior with a long of 61 yards. Placed 17 inside the 20-yard line, including five touchbacks. Had 19 punts of 50+ yards as a junior, pinning opponents 21 times inside the 20-yard line. Had several punts of over 60 yards including a career long of 68 yards as a sophomore.

Positives: Biglegged, explosive punter that's been consistent the past four-years. Gets tremendous hang time on punts, drives the ball to the opposite side of the field, and swings the momentum of a game. Steady leg and can punt for both distance and direction. Gets the ball off in the face of pressure.

Negatives: Not quick getting the ball off his foot. Turned in a rather unspectacular performance at the combine.

Analysis: A reliable punter who comes through in the clutch, Colquitt answered the call in college. Solid middle-round consideration who could break into a starting lineup at the next level if he improves his touch-to-toe speed.
