That is awesome. Very happy for Bryan, but given how this pick has been received I definitely wouldn't want to be a punter coming up in next year's draft.

The Jaguars franchise, meanwhile, seemed to be just as excited about Anger, releasing two previous punters, Nick Harris and Spencer Lanning, the day after the draft.
#Darn!

Granted, the reception has not been positive, but perception of the pick is still malleable. If Anger has a great rookie season, people will be talking about how inventive the Jags were and praising their willingness to commit to an unpopular and unorthodox decision.

If Anger has a great rookie season, there will be heat on the front office for failing to improve the offense and people will start to wonder if Blaine Gabbert is the solution to Jacksonville's QB woes.

Not unless they win games due to his punting.
