Any long-snapper is definitely not a flashy pick, but Thomas Fletcher is about as good as they come at the position.

In his four years at Alabama he finished perfect on all snapping duties, received first team All-American honors his senior year, and won the Patrick Mannelly Award (nation’s top long snapper). Fletcher has quality size for the position and excellent accuracy. He has the potential to become one of the best long-snappers at the next level.

Current long snapper J.J. Jansen has been a tremendous player for the Panthers for over a decade, but let’s not forget he is now 35 years old and only has one year left on his contract, so he’ll most likely be gone after this upcoming season. If Fletcher makes the roster, he could provide special teams value right away and be a nice backup plan in case of an injury to Jansen this year.
