    Anyone else think we need a Punter?

    There is a guy at senior week named Daniel Sepulveda who is considered the best punter in the draft. He consistently has been booming punts of 50+ yards and hang times approaching 5 seconds. As an added bonus the scouts say he is built like a linebacker 6'2 225 lbs. lean and muscular! I don't much care about Gardocki's claim to fame of never being blocked. He is a big reason our punt coverage has not been so good. Short punts with low hang times = big returns. Nobody usually drafts punters in the first few rounds. Would love to see this guy in black and gold helping our defense out by pinning teams deep on punts!

    well we kept our 3rd rounders the last couple of years i thought lol

    i wouldn't mind drafting the best punter in the 4th round, but i'm sure they are gonna try to keep barr since he's probably cheaper

    Barr is back in camp and he was a beast last year, clearly out performing Gardocki so I'd like to see him do well again and take the job. He had great hang time and was really working out well in directional kicking too.

    Gardocki is still a helluva directional kicker he just has no leg left for the long stuff. If Barr is a younger, stronger version of Gardocki I'll take that !

    no one said anything about stronger lol........look at his nfl europe stats, he's not very impressive, we'd be better off letting ben kick punts like a did a few times in college lol........i'd rather draft someone in the 4th round, it's not like we ever keep our 4th rounders anyway so it won't be a reach..........

    The Raiders have the best punter in the NFL and it does them alot of good.lol

    I agree the Steelers need to ditch Gardocki. But lets not spend to high of a pick on a punter.

    yeah lets spend the 4th rounder on someone that we'll cut as usual......lol..........if you want to get good use out of your pick you should draft an actual need, and a punter is an actual need
