Packers pre-draft breakdown: Specialists lineup is solid

Apr. 24, 2012
 

Once again this April, Press-Gazette Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky will provide a pre-draft breakdown of the Packersí roster at each position heading into the April 26-28 NFL draft.

Hereís the position schedule:

Monday: Defensive line

Tuesday: Linebackers

Wednesday: Defensive backs

Thursday: Offensive line

Friday: Running backs

Saturday: Receivers

Sunday: Tight ends

Monday: Quarterbacks

Today: Special teams

What they have: Mason Crosby (K), Tim Masthay (P), Brett Goode (LS).

Position analysis: After signing a five-year, $14.75 million contract last July, Mason Crosby made a career-high 85.7 percent of his field goals (24-of-28), including a franchise-record 58-yarder at Minnesota. Tim Masthay, in his second season as the Packersí punter, set the team record for both gross (45.6 yards) and net (38.6 yards) average while placing 23 of 55 punts inside the 20. Brett Goode, in his fourth season as the Packersí long snapper, was nearly flawless again.

The future: The Packers didnít have any other specialists in training camp last season, and the only reason to do so this summer would be to avoid overworking this trio, which, barring injury, will be intact for another year.
