As I am doing research for dynasty rookie drafts, I come across some articles and notes from local reporters on lesser-covered or off the beaten track rookies at training camps…or just nice observation notes on all the young players. I’m going to share some of them with you on players you might be interested in…
The Giants signed an undrafted free agent WR/DB today with quite a tease — some headlines proclaiming Carson-Newman Track & Field star Kevin Snead the fastest college prospect of 2017…comparing his Pro Day times at Tennessee to that of record-setter John Ross at the NFL Combine.
It’s a bit of a stretch.
There were observation/hand times reported for Snead around 4.21-4.26 at his Pro Day…and hand times are almost always far lower than reality/machine timed 40-times. Running in the 4.3s isn’t a bad thing, though…
So, why haven’t you (likely) hear of Snead before? Career numbers of 6 catches for 193 yards and 1 TD in two seasons, and one rush for -5 yards…not necessarily ‘tantalizing’. He did return a kick for a TD in limited return chances and had a nice long TD catch for his lone receiving TD. You’ll see some of that action in the video below…
You’ll see Kevin Snead added to our 2017 dynasty rookie draft rankings 4.0 version next week. Version 3.0 was published yesterday on CFM. Here’s the story on the signing and a couple minute video for those interested:
