Yesterday was the final day of the 2016 NFL Draft and marked the second consecutive year that a long snapper was drafted. After the Patriots selected Joe Cardona in the Fifth Round last year, the Lions picked client Jimmy Landes from Baylor in the Sixth Round yesterday.
After the Draft, there were multiple snappers signed to undrafted free agent contacts and others offered tryouts. Below are the signings and tryouts I am aware of and some of the signings could actually be only tryouts . Information will be updated over the next few days and any additional signings or tryouts can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. One snapper from last year’s Draft class, Harrison Elliott from Air Force, signed with the Colts yesterday as well.
