Ready for the God of punting, Buffalo? The Bills picked him up at the 2022 NFL draft.
Matt Araiza was predicted to be the top punter taken at the 2022 draft, but that ended up not being the case. Instead, he slid a little to the Bills, who took him off the board with the first pick in the sixth round.
Regardless, he was a known commodity for his nickname prior to the draft: the “Punt God.”
Following it, Araiza revealed he’s actually not too fond of it, but the nickname has stuck with him nonetheless and for good reason. Araiza is known to destroy footballs with his left foot.
In 2021 alone, Araiza had 18 punts of 60-plus yards, including two at 80 or more yards.
Check out some of his boots below with this highlight reel of his play at San Diego State in 2021:
