Spring position rankings:

Don’t worry! We didn’t forget about the SEC’s best specialists. Here’s a look at the top returning punters and place-kickers this spring:

Punters
Drew Kaser, Texas A&M (JR): The Aggies had a punter? You better believe it, and he’s a great one. Kaser led the SEC, averaging 47.4 yards per punt on 44 punts. Kaser can boom it.

Sam Irwin-Hill, Arkansas (SR): Irwin-Hill is an ambidextrous punter, one of the few in the country, and he averaged over 44 yards per punt last season.

Collin Barber, Georgia (JR): Georgia’s special teams struggled, but punting and placekicking was a rather strong suit. Barber averaged over 44 yards per punt in 2013.

Kickers
Marshall Morgan, Georgia (JR): Morgan was money in 2013, making 47 of 47 PATs and 22 of 24 field goals, good for over 92 percent. Morgan was the only SEC kicker to average over two attempts per game.

Colby Delahoussaye, LSU (SO): Delahoussaye had a great 2013 season for LSU, making 56 of 57 PATs and 13 of 14 field goals. The best part about it? He was just a freshman, and LSU will have consistency at the position for three more years.

Elliot Fry, South Carolina (SO): Fry is the second rising sophomore on the list, and he joined the team as a walk-on last fall. Fry made 54 of 55 PATs and 15 of 18 field goal attempts.
