From the post-gazette:
Team honors Sepulveda
Punter Daniel Sepulveda beat out more glamorous draft picks to win the Steelers' rookie of the year award today.
Sepulveda, a fourth-round pick, won the award in a landslide over the runner-up, linebacker LaMarr Woodley, the team's second-round draft pick who has three sacks.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons, the Steelers' No. 1 draft choice, did not get a vote.
Sepulveda is the second punter to win the rookie award, officially the "Joe Greene Great Performance Award," in its 24-year history. Harry Newsome won it in 1985, the year after Louis Lipps won the first such award in '84.
Sepulveda is fifth in the AFC with a 37.7 average, tops among rookies. He has had 27 of his 59 punts end inside the 20, second in the conference by two but with 11 fewer punts to do it.
not that it was hard to call, but I believe I wrote this a looong time ago:
I think the funny thing is that as much as the two picks have been criticized and for as unexpected as they were, the TE and Punter might be the surest things out of the draft class. I even expect that they'll be competing for the Steeler's ROY.
