St. Louis Rookie Punter Johnny Hekker > Tim Tebow

St. Louis rookie punter Johnny Hekker averaged 45.8 yards on punts this season. And, as the holder for rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein -- he was in on a variety of trick plays that kept special teams' coaches awake at nights planning for him:

An added bonus from Hekker was his prowess on trick plays. As Zuerlein’s holder, he threw a touchdown pass in the first Seattle game. He also completed two passes on fake punts Nov. 11 in San Francisco, helping the Rams earn a 24-24 overtime tie.

In the believe-it-or-not category, Hekker’s 42 yards passing on three completions in three attempts gave him more passing yards this season than Tim Tebow, who completed six of eight for 39 yards for the New York Jets.

“Oh man, I feel bad for Tim Tebow to be honest,” Hekker said.

Hekker had a 158.3 QB rating for the season. Tebow? 84.9 (a career high!)
