What they're saying: ... The Falcons picked Matt Bosher ...
Best case: Fulfills Jimmy Mora's dream of having one footsman play all special teams positions. Beats Ray Guy into Hall of Fame. Sacks Drew Brees twice in one game.
Worst case: Fails at punting. Converts to kicker. Fails at kicking. Converts to linebacker. Succeeds. Matt Bosher has no downside.
Highlights, stats, videos, background and stuff: Let's be serious. Michael Koenen is not quite as good as he used to be, and is up for a new deal, which will likely price him out of Atlanta's mediocre punter budget. The confusing part, though, is nobody yet knows whether Bosher will punt or kick, having done both at The U. He was announced by the team as a kicker, but Matt Bryant kicked goodness-knows-how-many game-winners in 2010 and isn't exactly ancient.
Bosher didn't compete at the NFL Combine, despite playing 17 positions and being Miami's best tackler.
Here's a video of Bosher booting some field goals and pinning a punt on the one-inch line, a line that does not exist but is still mentioned in every football telecast:

In 2009, Bosher was named the ACC's top kicker and second-best punter, and was named to the All-ACC Second Team at one position or another for three straight years. He was Florida's top kicker as a high schooler, and Scout.com even called him the best in the country.
