2012 NFL Draft Results: Bryan Anger To Jacksonville Jaguars, First Punter Off The Board

You probably weren't expecting a punter to be drafted this early. Probably the only one who was expected to get drafted somewhere was the punter who just got picked, one Bryan Anger from California. Anger was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 70th pick in the 3rd round overall.

Anger boomed 60 yards per punt at the East-West Shrine Game and was an All Pac-12 First Team special teams selection in his final three seasons with the Bears. His average of 43.5 yards per punt is second behind only Scott Tabor in Cal football history. He was on the Ray Guy Award list each of his four seasons as the best college punter out there, and twice was a semifinalist in 2008 and 2010.

Anger was so confident that he was going to get drafted he had planned a party for tomorrow. It now appears he wasn't confident enough. He should've planned it for today.

This is a bit old, but you can see the potential Anger has from his freshman campaign.
