The Top 10 Greatest NFL Punters of All-Time

Punters are among the least-appreciated players in American football, but their impact on the outcome of games can never be discounted. This list will examine the 10 greatest punters in NFL history, detailing their careers and leaving out the directional kickers to focus on the best punters of all time.

1. Shane Lechler

Shane Lechler was one of the greatest punters in NFL history and played for both the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans. His 47.5 yards per punt average in his career and 51.1 yards per punt in 2009 set the highest marks ever for a punter.

2. Yale Lary

The former Lions great's dependability and the fact he was so valuable on the field, put him in the all-time great NFL punters club. Lary was an outright game-changer, with an average of 44.3 yards per punt in his career.

3. Ray Guy

One of the top overall punters in NFL history, Ray Guy's accuracy and booming legs made him an influential figure in the game during the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders era. Although he averaged 42.4 yards per punt over his career, Guy's effect on the game is unquantifiable.

4. Sammy Baugh

Although not one of the top All-Time finest punters, Sammy Baugh's punting led the league for four seasons and at 9,894 has the highest career average of the top 50 NFL punters. Baugh's average of 45.1 yards per punt is a testament to his greatness.

5. Sean Landeta

The production for multiple teams such as the New York Giants, Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, and Philadelphia Eagles illustrated the overall consistency of Sean Landeta and put him in the upper echelon of career punters in NFL history. At 43.3 yards per his career punts, Landeta had a big leg that had a clear impact on the game.

6. Jerrel Wilson

Despite not playing for a team for as long after SF as he did for, with the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots, Jerrel Wilson continued his outstanding play on the field and was one of the best NFL punters of all time. Influential linebackers, average 43.0 yard career punt, Wilson leaves lasting legacy

7. Reggie Roby

During his time with the Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans, and San Francisco 49ers, Reggie Roby displayed the accuracy and distance that rank him as one of the best the game has ever seen. Roby led all punters with an average of 43.3 yards per punt in his time at Iowa.

8.Johnny Hekker

One of the best punters in the league, especially in recent years, has been Johnny Hekker, who has been a huge weapon for the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams with his career 46.9 yard per punt average. It speaks to Hekker's powerful impact on games as a punter.

9. Andy Lee

One of the most consistently effective players to step onto the field for the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, and Carolina Panthers during his career, Andy Lee proved himself as one of the best punters to ever grace the game. Lee's career average of 46.3 yards per punt is nothing short of a mark of excellence.

10.Pat McAfee

A long career with the Indianapolis Colts that included a number of standout seasons that demonstrated serious impact over games helped Pat McAfee land on the list of best punters in NFL history. He also has the average punter numbers to prove it.

These top-performing NFL punters have played a huge part in shaping the sport and changing the results of many games, letting them go down as some of the best punters the NFL has ever seen. Their supreme accuracy, incredible strength and remarkable durability have underlined that they will, in both cases, go down as two of the greatest to played the game.
