NFL Draft Snapping Update

For the first time since 2014, no long snapper was selected in the NFL Draft this weekend. In addition, just one snapper, Cal Adomitis from Pitt, signed a free agent contract after the Draft. Adomitis signed with the Bengals, where he will compete with veteran Clark Harris.

Some other rookie snappers earned tryout opportunities during rookie mini-camps over the next two weekends. They include Antonio Ortiz (TCU) with the Bears and Cowboys, Daniel Cantrell (Boise State) with the Raiders and Seahawks, Cameron Kaye (Troy) with the Packers and Billy Taylor (Rutgers) with the Jets.

Prior to the Draft, the Falcons signed client Liam McCullough after a tryout that included Brian Khoury. McCullough will compete with veteran Beau Brinkley who the Falcons signed in early April. During the Draft weekend, the Jaguars extended the contract of Ross Matiscik through the 2026 season.

With the signing of Adomitis by the Bengals and McCullough by the Falcons, four NFL teams have two snappers on the roster as of today. The two other teams are the Panthers who have JJ Jansen and Thomas Fletcher, while the Steelers have Christian Kuntz and Rex Sunahara.
