Positives

  • Plenty of experience as a four-year starter. 
  • Has experience in a variety of weather conditions. 
  • Pinpoint accuracy is his strength—does a great job pinning opponents inside the 20. 
  • Catches the ball cleanly and has a quick, smooth approach. 
  • Gets the ball away quickly when facing closing pressure and doesn't lose mechanics in the face of pressure.

 

Negatives

  • Doesn't have the leg strength to consistently flip field position when pinned deep in own territory. 
  • Plateaued after an impressive freshman year and never made any significant positive improvements in following years.

Overall

Van Der Kamp doesn't have an elite leg, but he's a strong directional punter. He doesn't have the complete package to guarantee him a job at the next level, but he will definitely get a look. His accuracy could allow him to stick around for awhile if he's able to win a job.

 

Draft Projection: 7th Round-Undrafted free agent
