Notes:

His father, Kevin, was a kicker for the Chicago Bears (1985-95) and the Arizona Cardinals (1996-97). Drew was an all-state punter and played golf as a Georgia prep. Redshirted in 2007. Saw limited action in ’08, punting three times for an average of 35.7 yards and long of 40 with one inside the 20-yard line. Won the Ray Guy Award (college football’s top punter) in ’09 after booting 56-48.1-L75-19 and leading the nation with 48.1 yards per punt. Was the first Bulldog since 1958 to lead the NCAA in punting. In ’10, was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award after recording 50-44.5-L59-19. In ’11, punted 58-44.2-L62-21. Held on field goals and PATs for his final three seasons. Team captain.

Positives:

Booms punts with hang time — ball jumps off his foot. Natural placement. Poised and consistent. Works at his craft. Good hands. Experience as a holder. Has NFL bloodlines.

Negatives:

Average athlete. Limited experience with windy conditions. Punter only.

Summary:

Strong-legged, consistent, pedigreed, polished punter who has been a standout since his sophomore season. Is pro-ready, worthy of a draft pick and should have longevity like his father.
