    I wanted the Pats to draft Sepulveda last year, and he looked pretty good yesterday. Plus of course, a pair of unpronounceable kickers is always fun, when the Pats get the Solomon Wil**** and Matt Vespergian braodcast teams.

    In 2008, I once again am calling for the Pats to draft a punter in the fourth round. Let me introduce Mike Dragosavich.

    First off, cool name, goes by "Drago" Imagine all the Rocky IV refrences we could use, "you will lose".

    http://www.gobison.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=2400&ATCLID=74285

    The highlights:

    Dragosavich’s Career Bests

    Most Punt Attempts: 8 vs. Cal Poly, 10-23-04; at Nicholls State, 10-2-04

    Best Punt Average: 55.8 at Southern Illinois, 11-19-05 (4/223 yards)

    Longest Punt: 79 yards at Southern Illinois, 11-19-05

    Punts Inside the 20: 4 at UC Davis, 11-13-04; vs. Northwestern State, 10-30-04

    50+ Yard Punts: 39

    60+ Yard Punts: 9

    70+ Punts: 1

    Or we could just sign one.

    It's amazing to me that Josh Miller isn't back on this team yet. Or even Danny Baugher for that matter.

    Why does it seem a lot of his best performances came in 2004 and 2005?

    ISn't Hansen the leading vote getter in the Pro Bowl balloting?

    Joe Sports Fan who doesn't even know what a punter is supposed to do on the field automatically votes for Hanson 'cause he plays for the Patriots.

    No sh!t. Hansen is TERRIBLE. I still can't understand why they dumped Miller to begin with, or didn't resign him after the fact.

    That's because I used a link from August 2007:

    Here's an update:

    http://www.gobison.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=11850&SPID=695&DB_OEM_ID=2400&ATCLID=1346417

    He had another great year, and is going to be playing in the Senior Bowl. What I love is his quote:

    "Well, for the first-time ever Mike Dragosavich is speechless...," said Dragosavich about his selection."

    Anyone who can already speak about themself in the third person in jest, has my vote.

    Baugher won't be back. He was cut because of his legal issues.

    As for Miller, I believe he's on another team.

    He's been in for a few tryouts, and I think was on another team's (Saints? Panthers?) roster for a week, but I'm pretty sure he's a free agent.

    Edit: Punted one game for the Titans vs. New Orleans. Cut 10/17.

    Baugher might not be back because of his legal issues, but, if you go back and look, if there is any sort of causal relationship between the two events, it would have to be that he had his legal issues because he was cut by the Pats, not the other way around. [Among other things, if he had still been a Patriot when he was arrested, the Pats would have points on PFT's Turd Watch.]

    Yeah too bad we didn't draft Sepulvada instead of Kareem Brown (who got cut and I believe got picked up by the Jets) in the 4th.

    Well who knows, maybe we'll take a flyer on Drago, you never know with BB. But odds are higher that we draft a TE than a P. ;)

    Right. He got cut because of performance, and ended up in a fist-fight with his father that night when his father allegedly yelled at him for pissing away an opportunity.

    Or so has been reported.

    Unfortunately, Sepulveda was selected 15 picks before Brown...

    And our other fourth round pick went for a guy named Moss. I'm happy with Belichick's decisions.

    It's still kind of sad when a punter would be more valuable than Kareem Brown. :p

    Does BB bring in some FA punters to Foxboro this week after Hansen got one blocked?

    PS: In all fairness to Hansen; Paxton did miss the block on Bowens on that play.
