    Van Der Kamp??

    Did he not get drafted or even invited to a camp?

    If so, that's crazy. One of the top punters in the country.

    Re: Van Der Kamp??

    Think there was only 1 punter drafted.

    May work out better for Kirby, now he can pick where he wants to go if he gets multiple UDFA offers.

    Still makes me wonder why he had such a bad year last season.

    Re: Van Der Kamp??

    Punters often go undrafted. No one has a dedicated punter back-up, so only 32 NFL punting jobs in the whole world. I remember when the Chiefs drafted the kid out of Tennessee, but he was a can't miss guy. Kirby is good, and death inside the 20, but hardly a can't miss guy. He will be in a camp. Expect to see him sign a contract today or tomorrow if not already.

    That shanked punt against Texas really hurt the defense's chance.

    He punted 40 times a game last year. Tough to blame the kid when your leg is about to fall off.

    Re: Van Der Kamp??

    Kirby had 17 punts over 50 yards last year and 27 inside the 50. My money on why a lot of people think he sucked was because he had to punt short to keep the ball from going in to the endzone. Kirby Vander Kamp is where punts go to die.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Re: Van Der Kamp??

    Just because his average was down, doesnt mean he sucked. He had so many punts he had to deaden inside the 20. Sure he had a few shanks, but he was hardly terrible.

    Kind of crazy that you are right, and that he was probably also the MVP of the team.

    This. Pathetic trolls think he sucked - can't see the fact he was greatly impacted by horrid offense.

    He had a significantly better year 2 seasons ago. This goes beyond just yard averages. If you didn't see that then perhaps your homer glasses are blocking your vision.
