Player Profiles: Sam Koch

wpid-sam_koch_and_john_harbaugh.jpgWhen it comes to franchise players, people rarely think of punters.  Sam Koch is that rare punter who is a franchise player or at least a guy who has been with the same franchise for a very long time.

Koch was drafted in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens and has been the Ravens starting punter ever since.  Since joining the Ravens Koch has never missed a game, starting every regular season and post season game.
