Carolina Panthers Draft Brad Nortman, Punter, Wisconsin

Recommended Posts



Was an all-state punter as a Wisconsin prep, and also played linebacker and tight end. Punted in all 13 games in 2008, booting 66 punts for an average of 41.8 yards with a long of 64 and 19 punts inside the 20-yard line. Totaled 49-42.0-L61-17 in ’09 and 38-42.7-L76-14 in ’10. Booted 46-42.2-L74-19 during his fourth and final season as the Badgers punter in '11.


Good leg strength and hang time. Has a feel for directional and pooch punting. Four-year starter. Experience kicking in cold, wind and rain. Held for place kicks.


Inconsistent get-off quickness. At times, hurries himself and boots some duds. Punts die in windy conditions. Average athlete — not fleet of foot on fakes.


Experienced, smart, right-footed punter who takes pride in his craft. Will have to improve delivery quickness to have a shot.

excellent pick A+++++++++++++++++++++++++

I've never seen him play a single snap but I can tell you absolutely 100% that he'll be a pro bowler for the next 10+ years
