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.

I find it shocking Timmons didn't win this thing.

Odd.  I had Spaeth pegged for it the whole way.

Is anyone else here less than excited that a punter was our ROY?

There should be a rule: if your rookie of the year is a punter, the Director of Player Personnel should lose a finger.

Do the Patriots even carry a punter on the roster?
