Mason Crosby, JK Scott

Mason Crosby has been a great kicker for the Packers for years. He may have slowed down a bit, but he is still kicking game-winners in the clutch. A reliable kicker is hard to find in the league and the Packers have one. Last season, he hit 91 percent of his field goals, up 10 percent from the previous year. 62 percent of his kickoffs went for touchbacks, the highest of his career.

He recently signed a three-year deal with the Packers, keeping him in Green Bay for what is likely the rest of his career.

JK Scott has a huge leg. He can boom punts extremely high and can punt the ball far. Last year his season-long was 66-yards. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t struggle. He has a tendency to shank a punt here or there, dragging down his average punt distance to just 44 yards per punt. He did, however, put 31 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line, good for sixth in the league. He had just four punts go into the end zone for a touchback.

If Crosby continues to be a steady presence at the kicking position and Scott continues to improve, the Packers will have a good pair of specialists.
