With the 150th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Patriots select Michigan punter Zoltan Mesko. Mesko will replace Chris Hanson, who will not return to the Patriots.
Mesko had a poor day at the Senior Bowl, but his athleticism and punting skills make him an attractive addition to New England. Mesko averaged over 44.5 yards per punt in his senior season, which also saw the former Wolverine improve his directional punting skills.
Mesko is a native of Romania, also speaks Hungarian. Our friends at the Patriots Hungarian Fan Club have to be ecstatic.
