Hunter Bradley Has An Opportunity To Be A Professional Long Snapper For The Green Bay Packers

It’s not very often that you see long snappers selected by anyone in the NFL Draft. It simply just doesn’t happen very frequently. But, it did happen in the 2018 version of the NFL Draft. And, well, it happened for Mississippi State’s own Hunter Bradley.

In the 7th round, with the 239th pick, the Green Bay Packers picked up Bradley. According to HailState.com, Bradley is the only true long snapper to be drafted this year as well as the only true long snapper to be drafted from the SEC in this century.

Pretty impressive stuff right there.

It’s uncertain as to just how long Bradley’s career in the National Football League will go on for. There’s not an overwhelmingly high demand for long snappers amongst NFL teams. And it’s a pretty specialized position.

But, one thing is certain. Hunter Bradley was selected in the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s got a chance to play in the NFL now.
