Kicker: Mason Crosby

Punter: JK Scott

Long snapper: Bradley Hunter

The Packers used two of their draft picks on special teams, selecting punter JK Scott and long snapper Bradley Hunter on the final day. While unpopular at the time, these could turn out to be smart selections by Brian Gutekunst.

While Justin Vogel played well last season, Scott could potentially give the Packers an upgrade at punter. Lance Zierlein of viewed him as a third or fourth-rounder ahead of the draft. The Packers got him in the fifth. Zierlein had high praise for Scott:

"“Four-year punter who is able to work for distance, hang time or placement whenever he needs. He’s been a consistent performer who operates well under pressure and possesses soft hands to handle poor snaps. He has the talent and play traits to become a long-time NFL starter.”"

Mason Crosby has been a reliable, consistent kicker for many years in Green Bay. If Scott and Hunter make the team, he’ll need to adjust to a new holder and snapper, but that shouldn’t be an issue with the summer to prepare.

It’s unclear who will return kickoffs and punts in 2018, but Crosby, Scott and Hunter will likely make up the kicker-punter-long snapper trio.
