Kicker: Joe Nedney
Punter: Andy Lee
Kick Returner: Dexter Carter
Punt Returner: Dana McLemore
Place kicker Joe Nedney still remains one of the best special teams weapons in 49ers history and was frequently the lone bright spot in what was largely an ugly period in team history.
San Francisco 49ers
Nedney played with the 49ers from 2005 through 2010 and was often the sole offensive weapon for the 49ers’ anemic offense during the forgettable years between 2002 and 2011. During that span, Nedney completed all of his 154 extra-point attempts. Additionally, he converted 129 of 149 field-goal attempts for an 86.6 completion percentage. Nine of 16 attempts were also from beyond 50 yards.
Alongside him for much of the ride was punter Andy Lee — a three-time Pro Bowler during his San Francisco tenure, which ended prior to the 2015 season after being traded to the Cleveland Browns.
Drafted by the 49ers with their first-round pick in 1990, running back Dexter Carter established himself as the most dominant kick returner in franchise history, amassing 4,707 yards and two touchdowns on 217 returns.
Nobody else even comes close to that in the 49ers’ record book.
During his four-plus seasons with San Francisco, cornerback Dana McLemore posted an impressive 1,531 return yards and four touchdowns on 142 punt returns.
