New Free Agency Winners and Losers

Jason Snelling FB 5'11 230 Virginia 4.79

By: Robert Davis

Snelling had an immediate impact as a freshman in 2002. He ran for just 38 yards on nine carries, but had a career high 31 receptions for 314 yards and four touchdowns. He redshirted in 2003, and was limited by injuries in 2004. As a junior, he bounced back and ran for 325 yards and three touchdowns, and added 19 catches for 140 yards out of the backfield. Snelling took more of a featured rusher role in 2006, rushing for 772 yards and seven touchdowns, while hauling in 29 receptions for 282 yards .

Jason Snelling is an excellent all around fullback prospect. He can do it all: run, block, and catch. He was a solid lead blocker his first three years in the program, but emerged as a legitimate rushing threat as a senior. As a fullback, he has the power and speed to be a threat running the ball. His best asset may be his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Snelling will be a multi purpose threat out of the backfield.

As a fullback, there is not a great deal to dislike about Snelling. He is not a dominating lead blocker, and he may not be a real playmaker with the ball in his hands, but that really is nitpicking.

Outside of Brian Leonard, there isnít a better fullback in the draft. He may not be a difference maker or have one true standout ability, but Snelling could be a very solid fullback in the NFL.
