Holba Drafted by Steelers; Post-Draft Snapper Developments

For the second consecutive season, a long snapper was drafted in the Sixth Round of the NFL Draft.  Colin Holba of Louisville was drafted by the Steelers and will compete with veteran Greg Warren.  Last year, client Jimmy Landes was a Sixth Round pick of the Lions.

After the Draft, a number of snappers were either signed to free agents contracts or, in the majority of cases, given the opportunity to tryout at upcoming rookie mini-camps.  Below are some names of the snappers connected with teams at this time.

This list will be updated as more names are added and it becomes clear which are signings or tryouts.  Unsigned snappers from prior Draft classes may also be invited to tryout.  For example, former Cardinals snapper Danny Dillon has been invited to the Panthers mini-camp.

Any missing snapper signings or tryouts can be emailed to kevingold@longsnap.com.
