Michael Dickson was awarded the Ray Guy Award last year as the nation’s top punter, averaging 47.4 yards per attempt for Texas. The Seattle Seahawks understand that this does not tell the whole story. They understand that teams must dig deep in the name of due diligence. Sure, you want a punter to be good at punting, but if they’re no good at staring contests, what’s the point?
With that in mind, team representatives challenged Dickson to a few during an NFL Combine interview.
…“The first time I did terrible,’’ Dickson said. “I only lasted for 14 seconds, but my third time I had figured out a technique to look around the room just to get your eyes a little watery, I guess.”
