Former LSU punter Zach Von Rosenberg, once a minor league pitcher with the Pittsburgh Pirates, hopes to get another shot at the big time.

Von Rosenberg spurned a baseball scholarship from LSU in 2009, and signed a contract including a seven figure bonus with Pittsburgh.

ZVR later returned to LSU, and the last four years has punted for the Tigers.

He hopes to be a late round pick in the NFL draft, or make a team as an undrafted free agent.

Von Rosenberg turns 31 in September.

You can watch the NFL draft live on WGNO starting Thursday April 29th.
