    Over The Cap estimates Denver getting a 5th and two 7th round picks as comp picks. Although those could climb because Callahan and James basically didn't play this year and playing time is part of the equation.

      It's also good to look at how many fair catches the punter has caused, because that's an indication of hang time, which is the most valuable thing a punter can give you. A punter that hammers it 50 yards every punt, but they're line drives, is less valuable than a punter who averages 45 yards per punt but gives you 4.5-5 seconds of hang time, because he's likely to end up with a better net average.

      Denver needs to invest heavily in Special Teams this offseason. They need a new Coordinator (Joe DeCamillis would be my choice) they need to get a much better punter, even if it means signing a free agent for some decent money. And they need to get better in coverage players, especially gunners. Rounds 5-7 of the draft should be heavily weighted towards players that can step in on day 1 and provide valuable special teams reps on all 4 units.
      Is there a position in an NFL team that has less valuable than the punter?
      I don't think there is. Objectively the FG kicker is more valuable, even the long snapper is probably more valuable. I don't even like using a roster spot solely for a long snapper. Broncos went with a highly rated P a couple of years ago, that didn't work out. Of the 12 highest paid punters only 2 are on teams that have qualified for the playoffs this year. I would rather use a 7th rounder on a OC/G that can long snap!
      I would contend that a punter has NO significant influence in the win/loss column.
      Anger punted a little over half as many times as Wadman did ... there's a solution.
      I'm not oppose to using a 7th round pick on a good punter because the pick is comparable to the value. An article I read from Forbes shows that UDFA have a higher % of being successful than 4th round picks or later.

        Punter isn't a valuable position when you have a good offense, but when your offense is average to bad then a good punter is a big thing, because it helps flip the field.

        And running back is an extremely low value position, look at how rarely they get paid these days. But that doesn't stop teams from wanting to have a good one.
