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.
