After becoming what fans and analysts consider the biggest special teams snub in the 2023 NFL draft, Australian punter Adam Korsak received an invite by the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers for their respective NFL rookie mini camp.
Korsak was expected to be drafted in the late rounds of the NFL draft. Instead he found himself undrafted and without an undrafted free agent contract. It took a few days but the award winning punter is about to show NFL teams that he’s capable of competing with professionals.
The Maribyrnong College and Victoria University alum arrived at Rutgers University with a background in Australian Rules Football among many other sports.
He was a four time state representative for Victoria in Aussie Rules where he played as a midfielder. Korsak also trained in the prestigious ProKick Australia program under former NFL punter Nathan Chapman and NFL kicker John Smith.

Korsak’s American football pedigree is one of the greatest in all of the NCAA among punters. He holds the school and NCAA records in career punting yards with 15,318 career punts from 349 attempts, and the season team net punt with 45.25 in 2021. He launched a school record punt of 79 yards against Northwestern in 2018.
This past season Korsak was named the Ray Guy winner for the best collegiate punter as well as featuring as a nominee in every single season of his Rutgers career.
On the Chiefs side, he’ll be competing against Southern Utah punter Jake Gerardi. As of the first of May in the USA, Korsak is the only punter the Steelers have invited.
