    A little early but obviously they felt he was the best punter in the draft. This is an expected pick. The Pats were seen talking to/working out this kid. And with this selection I am saved from going 0 fer in this years guess the Pats picks game!!

    A punter in the 5th round. I can only imagine what Mel Kiper is saying. Not that Mel matters of course.

    They take a punter...one of the most criticized spots for them for years- the hell with his placement in the draft, they needed a punter.

    Nope, he's the one they wanted. Punter is a definite need for this team. Just like longsnapper was a need last year, and the Pats picked the guy they thought can best do the job.

    6'4" 240 lbs.. he is a big one.

    Nice that the Pats have the luxury to do this, now they can look for the Elvis Dumervils of the world.

    Great pick! The best punter of the draft. Remember we will only hear Pats late in 6th round so he could have been picked in between.

    Exactly, I don't give a damn where we take one, I just want a good punter. Not saying this guy is, I don't know much about him, but if they feel he is, then get him while you can. Our punting game has been such sh*t since Josh Miller, so I really hope either this kid or the Aussie we signed can get it done.

    I agree that they need a punter, and have no problem with them drafting one. I just wouldn't have done it in the 5th round. I'd rather they move up and take Ricky Sapp.

    I don't feel he was the best punter of the draft. Not after his horrible week at the Senior Bowl.

    So far, this is the only pick that I am worried about..

    Football is a game of field position and we've suffered enough subpar kicking and field position from the 'Hanson era'. Glad to see us address this glaring hole in our Special Teams unit.

    As much as I can love a fifth round punter I love Zoltan Mesko.

    I have no complaints! We needed this kid, or one like him, and if he's as good as advertised, then we'll be several orders better off than we have been.

    Pro Footwall Weekly says:

    Pros: "Outstanding ability to punt directionally. Good leg strength, rise and hang time. Experienced kicker in wind and rain. Good work ethic. Smart and athletic. Very productive and did not have a punt blocked in four years. First specialist in school history to be elected team captain - blends well with teammates".

    Cons: "Average get-off times. Did a lot of rugby-style punting".

    150 -- Patriots -- P Zoltan Mesko

    Looks like the Patriots got sick of inconsistent punting over the last decade, or so, and used a fifth-round pick on heavy-legged punter. I like the pick a lot. It will help the Patriots immensely.

    From a pure names perspective, the Pats have gotten some keepers in this year's draft. I mean Gronk and Zoltan, they just sound like football players. :)
    I know, names don't really mean much, but they are fun to say!

    The Z man was a good pick

    I think people take for granted of how important having a solid punter is...Mesko fits the bill
