    I'm very glad to hear this. I've had the Pats taking a punter with Huber as my #1 candidate since January. I think we could do well to upgrade the position from Chris Hanson. Thomas Morstead (Patchick's choice) and Graham Gano (also a K) are other options, but I like Huber's hang time and ability to pin opponents inside the 20, both traits BB loves.

    I hope we take a punter in the 6th-7th or UDFA.

    The trouble with changing punters is that Hanson is the holder

    for Gostkowski. The Pats have already changed long snappers.

    People always cite holders & long-snappers as being irreplaceable and changing them is a big deal, etc. It hasn't been for the Pats in the past, and it won't be in the future. This is the NFL. There are enough qualified players to snap and hold. (Unless you're trotting James Harrison out there ...)
