SHANE LECHLER

It isn’t very often that the punter is the best player on your team, but that was the case for the Oakland Raiders in Madden NFL 12. That year, Shane Lechler kicked his way to a 99 OVR rating, tied with Nnamdi Asomugha for the highest rating in Silver and Black. 

“Shane Lechler could kick the ball so far in Madden NFL 12, he may have been the best weapon on the Raiders. He was rated 99, the first punter to be regarded that highly in Madden.” - Shaun Mason

Though now a member of the Houston Texans, Lechler will always be remembered for setting a Raiders franchise record with an 80-yard punt in 2011. With power like that, Lechler could change your field position very easily in Madden NFL.

“Lechler is all about Kick Power and switching field position. No punter is more consistent!” - Zfarls
