Brad Nortman

I think he could be a very good punter for us. Looks real solid out there. Hopefully we won't be punting much, but from what I've seen it's hard to believe he was rarely mentioned along with the Drew Butler's and Bryan Anger's in the draft.

Both of our punters are kicking the hell out of the ball. I knew Jason Baker was a bum.

Anybody have an idea who's winning the battle so far?

If it's anywhere close to even, Nortman will get the job simply based on youth and the fact we used a draft pick on him.

Harris has looked better IMO.

I agree. I want Nortman to be the better of the 2, but he hasn't. He will likely get the nod b/c he was drafted, but that & age is the only reasons if he does (at this point anyway..still 2 games left in which to assess).

I don't think Nortman will make it. Harris is better at angling the ball. Nortman kicked one out of the endzone yesterday when he could've angled it inside the 10. That didn't help his case.

Shoulda used the pick on Vontaze or Denard

I think that since we wanted a punter we should've picked the guy with the higher average, Drew Butler, since that's pretty important.

45.2 > 42.1

He even had a year average of 48.1. That's amazing.

I believe you can teach angling, but you can't teach leg power.

    • Love the Cobb comparison, and Samuel could even be better.   Here are comparable measurements....   Cobb-- 5'10, 191 lbs, 31 arm length, 9 3/8 hands, 4.46 40yd, 16 bench, 33.5 vert, 115 broad, 7.08 3 cone, 4.34 shuttle Curt-- 5'11, 195 lbs,  31.25 arm length, 9 1/2 hands, 4.31 40yd, 18 bench, 37 vert, 119 broad, 7.09 3 cone, 4.33 shuttle   the only thing Cobb beats him in is the 3 cone drill. Curtis beats Cobb in every other measurable, and is taller and 5 lbs bigger. They even have similar birthdays and were drafted at 20 yrs old each, cobb turned 21 in august of his rookie year, Samuel will be 21 in august.
