    When deciding who the Pats should pick in round three onwards, it would be sweet if one had a handle on said player's special teams experience and reputation.

    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."

    Some guy on the NFLN thought WR Yamon Figurs's name was "Yamon Figurs, the best gunner in college football". I must have heard that phrase 6-8 times, although don't ask me how they quantify that.
