Why Are The Chiefs Working Out A Punter?

The Kansas City Chiefs are among a handful of teams that have or are scheduled to have a private workout with Michigan punter Zoltan Mesko. has learned that three teams, the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, have scheduled workouts with one of the top punters in the 2010 NFL Draft, Michigan’s Zoltan Mesko. Mesko will work out for the Chiefs on March 26th, the Eagles on March 30th and the Patriots on April 14th or 15th; all workouts will be conducted at the University of Michigan.

He has also worked out for the Jets and Colts.

Punters and kickers are always a longshot to be drafted but that's a good chunk of teams looking at a punter. But he's a four-year starter out of Michigan and increased his totals every year.

My question is why are the Chiefs using one of their limited pre-draft private workouts on a punter?

Dustin Colquitt is one of the best in the league. Maybe it's for kickoffs but it sure is a head scratcher.

One thing Todd Haley said at the 2009 NFL combine was, 'I know we have a good punter' when asked about the team.
