4. JK Scott
JK Scott, the 6-foot-6 rookie out of Alabama, began his “offseason” by getting drafted in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s an awesome way for any player to start his career, nonetheless a punter.
The next big boom in his offseason came when the Packers released the incumbent Justin Vogel after never seeing Scott punt in a practice or a regular season game. Or any NFL game for that matter. This was a huge boost of confidence for the rookie, as the Packers put all their chips on one hand (or foot).
Even though it’s early on in camp, Scott came in with absolutely no competition and is a virtual lock to become the starting punter. He had some big kicks during his first couple of days, making the Packers’ brass feel even better about their decision. Let’s hope Scott can carry his great offseason into training camp and beyond.
