  1. Michael Dickson*, P, Texas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
    Projected Round (2018): 4-6.

    4/26/18: Dickson won the Ray Guy Award in 2017 as the best punter in the nation. He averaged 47.4 yards per punt on the year, recording a long of 76 yards. As a sophomore, Dickson averaged 47.4 yards per punt with a long of 74 yards. He averaged 41.3 yards per punt with a long of 63 in 2015. The Australia native has a very powerful leg and could be a mid-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, a high selection for a punter.






  2. Johnny Townsend, P, Florida
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected Round (2018): 5-7.

    4/26/18: Townsend punted well during the 2017 season, averaging 47.5 yards per punt with a long of 70. In many drafts, Townsend would be the top punter, but a rare prospect like Michael Dickson makes Townsend to likely be the second punter selected.

    7/24/17: Townsend was excellent as a junior, averaging 47.9 yards per punt with a long of 62. He was so good, that some NFL teams were doing scouting reports on him because there was consideration that he might declare early for the 2017 NFL Draft. Florida's offense struggled, but Townsend helped the Gators play field position with his booming punts to help his defense. In 2015, Townsend had a quality season for Florida as he averaged 45.4 yards per punt with a long of 61. He averaged 42 yards per punt in 2013 and redshirted in 2014.


  3. J.K. Scott, P, Alabama
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 195.
    Projected Round (2018): 6-FA.

    7/24/17: Scott punted well in 2016 for the Crimson Tide with an average of 47.2 yards per punt with a long of 66 yards. He was superb as a freshman for Alabama in 2014, averaging a booming 48 yards per punt with a long of 73 yards. It turned out to be the best season ever for a punter in Alabama school history. Scott dropped 56 percent of his punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line (31-for-55) that season. He was a First-Team All-SEC selection and finalist for the Ray Guy Award. Scott wasn't as good as a sophomore in 2015, averaging of 44 yards and recording a long of 59 yards.


  4. Will Gleeson, P, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 190.
    Projected Round (2018): 6-FA.

    4/26/18: Gleeson's averaged 41.5 yards per punt with a long of 56. The Australian is an interesting punter as he uses both legs. One side is for shorter, pinning punts. The other is for long distance.
