It was another quiet week at the long snapping position in the NFL. However, there was a notable achievement Sunday, as Panthers snapper JJ Jansen played in a franchise record 222nd game.
As of December 7th, Blake Ferguson (Dolphins) led the Pro Bowl fan vote for snappers in the AFC with 21,953 votes and Andrew DePaola (Vikings) led the NFC with 28,120 votes. In the initial fan vote tally released November 28th, Nick Moore (Ravens) led the AFC with 15,393 votes, while DePaola had 15,556.
The Steelers worked out snappers earlier in the week although none were signed. The snappers were Hunter Bradley, Thomas Fletcher, Brian Khoury and Steven Wirtel.
On Saturday night, Chris Stoll of Penn State won the Patrick Mannelly Award as the FBS snapper judged the most outstanding. The other two finalists were Alex Ward (UCF) and Matt Hembrough (Oklahoma State) and all are considered top prospects for the NFL Draft this April.
Four snappers recorded assisted tackles in punt coverage this week. Charley Hughlett (Browns), Matt Overton (Cowboys), Ross Matiscik (Jaguars) and Casey Kreiter (Giants) each had one assisted tackle.
