K: Daniel Carlson, Oakland Raiders
I remember seeing Daniel Carlson at the 2018 Senior Bowl and thinking he was going to be a stud in the NFL. He struggled early with the Vikings, was cut, and then was picked up by the Oakland Raiders who found themselves a major weapon.
Carlson hit 16 of his 17 field goals with the Raiders after making just one of his four attempts with the Vikings.
Of his 16 made field goals with Oakland, 11 were from 40 yards or beyond.
P: Dustin Colquitt, Kansas City Chiefs
On a team that punted the ball just 45 times last season, Colquitt managed to still land 21 of his punts inside the 20. The average return on his punts was just 5.7 yards, good for fourth-best in the NFL, so he’s putting air under the punts that get returned as well.
LS: Casey Kreiter, Denver Broncos
Kreiter was picked by Anthony Lynn’s staff as the punter for last year’s Pro Bowl squad. The fact that we never hear much about Kreiter is a testament to how good he is at his job.
Return Specialist: Dwayne Harris, Oakland Raiders
Harris was a co-leader in the NFL in 2018 with a punt return average of 14.1 yards, and nearly broke 1,000 yards in total returns as a kickoff returner and punt returner.
He also had a really fascinating 99-yard touchdown on a punt return against the Broncos on Christmas Eve. He remains a dynamic special teams ace.
