Hawks Go In Long Snapper in Sixth

by: Michael Steffes

In the Sixth round with the 189th overall pick the Seahawks have chosen to address the huge hole at long snapper by taking Tyler Schmitt from San Diego St.

Schmidt was a four year starter at San Diego St. He specializes in long snapping only. He is a good athlete as he played Defensive End in high school. Many people had him ranked as the 2nd long snapper on the board. Obviously the Hawks liked him better than Tim Bugg.

It will be interesting to see if they get a kicker to pair with Schmidt. This is also two picks in row with the same last name. Way to confuse the trainers Ruskell (and the fans too). END
