Currently on the roster: Sam Martin, Don Muhlbach, Nate Freese, and Giorgio Tavecchio

When Martin Mayhew gave his pre-draft press conference he said there were two positions the team wouldn’t look to draft, punter and long snapper. The Lions did, however, draft one specialist, kicker Nate Freese in the seventh round. Freese will join punter Sam Martin to try and help revamp the Lions’ special teams units.

There’s not much competition here outside of the kickers and even then it shouldn’t keep Lions fans up at night.

My Guess: Sam Martin, Don Muhlbach, and Nate Freese (3)
