Very solid punter!

Not fond of a punter but understand concept. Building defense and now field position.

Huge help to offense with spending offensive picks

We've been needing a punter. As long as coaches think he's the best punter, I don't have a problem with this, especially since we traded down to get him.

Look at this way, we just drafted a starter in the tail end of the 5th round.

I like it. We need to improve special teams and change field position.

Just watched some of him. Dude has a nice leg. Guess I'm not as down on this as I originally was.

I was so tired of revolving door at punter and the team always starting <30. I fully support going punter in the fifth if he's the guy we wanted.

22 minutes worth of Sam Martin highlights.

Am I the only one that thought Brad Wing was the only P worth drafting? Now 3 off the board, none named Wing?

Either the Lions really botched this pick or I am just completely out of touch with Ps. For the time being, I don't like it. But I am open to changing my mind.

No because wing has been in trouble, also speculation to why he left early was because he was going to be in some more. Don't need a head case at punter.
