The NFL Draft is in the books and, once again, no long snapper was drafted. The last snapper to be drafted was Jacob Ingram in the Sixth Round by the Patriots in 2009. Ingram’s brother, Luke (Hawaii), is one of a number of snapping prospects who have signed as undrafted free agents. Luke signed with the Steelers immediately after the Draft. Other snappers to reach deals include Carson Tinker of Alabama (Jaguars), Kevin McDermott of UCLA (49ers) and Adam Steiner of Akron (Raiders).
Although I have not been able to confirm certain transactions, it appears from various published reports that other snappers may have also reached either contract deals or tryout opportunities in mini-camp. These snappers include Georgia Tech’s Tyler Morgan (Panthers), Houston’s Brandon Hartson (Bears) and Eastern Michigan’s Mike Zupancic (Patriots).
Longsnap.com will be updating the list as the transactions become official over the next few days.
