Conference: Big 12
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 204
40 Time: 4.99
Grade: 3.35

BIO: Three-year starter, named All American last season. Averaged 45.1 yards on 66 punts as a senior, with a long punt of 80 yards and placed 22 inside the 20 yard line. Junior totals included a 43.2-yard with a long of 71 yards. Has had five punts blocked the past three seasons.

POSITIVES: Solid punter that's consistently done well under pressure. Quickly gets the ball off his foot, possesses a live, strong leg and gets terrific hang time. Follows through getting good leg extension and immediate rise on the ball. Poised under pressure and properly handles poor snaps.

NEGATIVES: Not a good pooch punter. Does not consistently drive his punts downfield.

ANALYSIS: One of the best punters at the Combine, Larson is a good athlete with nice leg strength and the abilities to play in the NFL. Consistently has hang times over four seconds and could fall into the late rounds of the draft.

PROJECTION: Late Sixth Round
