Matt Haack was a model of consistency during his four years as a punter at ASU, and he has used his strong left leg to give himself an opportunity to play in the NFL.

Haack took over the starting punter spot in 2014 during his sophomore season and averaged 43.3 yards per punt while accumulating 2,296 yards from his punts.

He was even better his junior year as he averaged 43.1 yards per punt, good for fifth nationally and fourth in the Pac-12. His 32 punts inside the 20 were the second most in the country and and his two touchbacks were tied for the lowest total in the country. He was also listed on the Ray Guy Mid-season Award Watch List.

Haack remained just as consistent in his senior season and his 44.4 yard net average was ranked sixth in the country. He had a career-long 76-yard punt against Colorado and was once again listed on the Ray Guy Mid-season Award Watch List.

73 of Haack’s career punts were downed inside the 20-yard line and he finished with a 43.0 yard per punt average in his career that tied him for fourth all-time in ASU history.

-Career-long 76-yard punt

Where is he now?

Haack was projected to possibly be drafted in the seventh round of the 2017 draft but after falling out of the draft he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins. He will compete in training camp with incumbent starting punter Matt Darr.
