So can we collect a list of players on this thread who are known to be good special teamers, on top of being position prospects that the Pats my be interested in?
Guys I have noticed are listed below, they could start on the practice squad and be emergency depth.
Name: Craig Dahl
College: North Dakota State Number: 20
Height: 6-2 Weight: 216
Position: SS Pos2: OLB
"Dahl is considered by some to be among the top special teams prospects in this draft, which will likely be his ticket to an NFL roster."
Name: Jason Snelling
College: Virginia Number: 38
Height: 5-11 Weight: 230
Position: RB Pos2: FB
He could also be a potential short yardage runner.
"Explosive contact seeker who plays with good aggression...Quick to get down, break up the wedge, wrap and secure as a tackler on the kickoff coverage unit. He also has the vision and feel to get down the field to down punts near the goal line."
