Calling all Special Teamers

Hi Nation,

I've searched and searched (ok, googled), but I can't seem to find a published lineup for special teams. We've got at least 5 different basic formations:

Kick-Off
Kick Return
Punt
Punt Return
Field Goal

Sites will typically list kickers and returners, but not blockers, wedge busters, or gunners. Things like that. We talk about someone like Boobie being a great special teamer. OK, cool, but where? Kick-offs? Returns?

My goal is to diagram these out with 2012 starters and then try and see where guys like Skuta, Dahl, Moody, Spillman, Dixon, and others fit in. Who is competing with who?

If you have a link to an article or old post feel free to add that as well. Let's give our special teamers the attention they deserve.
