Pat O'Donnell Named To PFWA All-Rookie Team

The Pro Football Writers of America has revealed their All Rookie Team for the 2014 season and the Chicago Bears are just one of seven teams with multiple players selected. Cornerback Kyle Fuller and punter Pat O'Donnell were both recognized for their outstanding play this season.

This is O'Donnell's second all rookie honor, and as I mentioned last time, he was the only rookie that punted during the 2014 season.

O'Donnell's net average of 37.7 was 28th best in the NFL. His average of 43.8 was 27th. He had 20 punts placed inside the 20, which was 28th.

During his 2013 season at the University of Miami his punting average was 47.1, so you can see what a big leg he has. I think an off season of working solely on his craft will allow him to come back and have a much improved 2015 season.
