Player Overview

O'Donnell became the starting punter for the Cincinnati Bearcats as a sophomore and earned First Team All-Big East honors as a junior averaging 43.8 yards per punt and was a Ray Guy Finalist. He was a Second Team All-Big East performer as a senior and graduated with a degree in organizational leadership, but still had one year of eligibility remaining and was able to transfer to Miami per NCAA rules, the team he grew up rooting for as a kid.

O'Donnell averaged 47.1 yards per punt in 2013 with the Hurricanes with almost half of his punts traveling over 50 yards, earning First Team All-ACC honors.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Built like a tight end with good bulk packed on his frame. Terrific athlete as a former soccer star with gliding speed to cover a large area with the willingness to finish tackles on special teams coverage. Devoted to his craft and prepares like a pro.

Long, swift leg motions to generate power from his movements to boom the ball off his foot. Handled kickoff duties at Cincinnati and Miami. Was an All-Conference player each of the last three seasons. Good experience kicking in all types of weather.

WEAKNESSES: Has room to quicken his timing from snap to punt, especially when he knows the rush is coming. Directional punting is okay, but not a strength for him. No experience as a field goal kicker.
