PraterTo help pass the time, we’re reviewing 31 players in 31 days (in alphabetical order) leading all the way up until Game Day on Monday, September 12th.  Today’s player: punter Britton Colquitt.

Colquitt is a 6-3, 205 pound specialist who is entering his second season as the Broncos punter.

Quick Facts/Stats (courtesy of the Denver Broncos):

  • A third-year punter who kicked 86 times for a 44.6-yard average with 19 placed inside the 20-yard line in his first season of action in 2010.

  • Tied for the NFL lead with six games grossing 50 or more yards in 2010, while posting the 10th-highest gross punting average (44.6) in team annals.
  • Punted five times for a 281 yards at Arizona (12/12/10) to mark the highest single-game average (56.2) for a road game in franchise history.
  • Completed brief stints on the Broncos’ active roster and Miami’s practice squad as a rookie in 2009.
  • Averaged 42.6 yards on 209 career punts at the University of Tennessee, where he was a two time All-Southeastern Conference selection and also handled kickoff duties.
  • Entered the NFL with Denver as a college free agent on April 27, 2009.

Did You Know…  Britton is joined by Kansas City’s Dustin Colquitt as the first pair of brothers to punt in the NFL at the same time since 1941 (George and Wes McAfee).

Quote ‘Em“We have all the talent in the world, we just didn’t have all the X factors to put it all together. Now we’ve got the coaching, we’ve got the motivation. Everybody’s going to want to come in there and have a great camp.”  — Colquitt prior to the start of the Broncos 2011 Training Camp.  (Via the Denver Post)

    So did Broncotalk not go to training camp at all this year?  Just curious how come there hasn't been any reporting on how the players are in training camp?  Denverpost seems to get worse every year (I miss Rocky Mtn News).  I know TC is over, but does anyone know of a good site for future years?

    BT really did i nice job at TC last year, much better than this 31 players in 31 days bullshit. i can google denver broncos players myself.

    guess they havent got anyone on BT with spare time/who is living in denver.
