With free agency concluded at the snapping position, attention now turns to the snappers eligible for the Draft and perhaps some street free agent snappers who have recently drawn the interest of teams.
Former NFL special teams coach Gary Zauner conducted combines for Draft eligible and free agent snappers last month. Among the 14 senior snappers who participated, the top six snappers were Jackson Anderson (Duke), Brandon Hartson (Houston), Jorgen Hus (Regina), client Evan Jacobsen (New Mexico), Bill Johnson (Tulane) and Kevin McDermott (UCLA). In addition, a few of the 22 free agent snappers, who worked out for 20 NFL teams, have already earned private NFL tryouts since the camp.
Pro Football Weekly just published its annual Draft Preview and ranked Luke Ingram (Hawaii) as the top snapper, followed by PJ Mangieri (Nebraska) and Carson Tinker (Alabama). Other snappers listed, but not ranked, are Dax Dellenbach (Florida State), Adam Steiner (Akron) and Parker Thomas (North Carolina).
