Week Ten brought another snapping change after Aaron Brewer of the Cardinals left the game last week due to injury. Brewer broke his hand, so the team conducted a tryout of three veterans. Kyle Nelson was signed to the practice squad after the workout, but was injured almost immediately after joining the team. The Cardinals next added Beau Brinkley, who snapped well in his Arizona debut Sunday. The other snapper at the workout was Colin Holba.
Now that we are beyond the half-way point of the NFL season, it is a good time to look at the Pro Football Focus grades for some of this season’s top snappers. Pro Football Focus grades every player in the NFL and most colleges and snappers are no exception.
After Week Nine, the top graded snapper by PFF was Andrew DePaola (Vikings). Josh Harris (Falcons) was next, followed by Carson Tinker (Bucs) and Matt Overton (Chargers). Tied for the fifth-highest grade was Morgan Cox (Titans) and Christian Kuntz (Steelers).
Harris had a solo tackle this week, while DePaola added an assisted tackle. Rick Lovato (Eagles) also had a solo tackle.
