NFL historian John Turney of Pro Football Journal ranks his top 15 punters of all time, and guaranteed: You'll be surprised with the results.

OK, so Ray Guy is there. So is Johnny Hekker. And Sammy Baugh, Bobby Joe Green, Sam Baker, Shane Lechler and Horace Gillom.

Horace Gillom? Yep, and Turney tells you all about the former Browns' punter, as well as other unexpected choices. He uses a comprehensive system to rank his punters and goes from beginning to end, 1 through 15 -- with number 15 the shocker.

It's a must read. So read it here:
