Discussion in 'Patriots Draft Talk' started by Real World, Apr 24, 2010.
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.
National Football League: NFL Draft 2010 - Zoltan Mesko
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.
..... and Ausbacker just got a little nervous.
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.
You don't mess with Zoltan. :rocker:
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..
I don't think so. And neither does Mayock.
First-team Academic All-American as well. I always like getting bright kids.
Zoltan-ized! Gad Zoots! We definitely needed a punter. BB Mesko really like the Zoltanator.............

Cold weather punter is all I need to hear.
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.
