College Career


One of only two long-snappers invited to the Combine, Schmitt may lack the bulk scouts prefer at the position, but he is among the best in every other facet of the game. Schmitt, who also practiced at linebacker for the Aztecs, had only two career tackles, but his value lies in his deep snapping accuracy and speed. A four-year starter, Schmitt never had a bad snap on punts or field-goal attempts and generates good speed on his snaps. Timed snaps as fast as .53 seconds from his hands to the punter. NFL scouts generally consider times in the .60-.70 range worthy of consideration.


Personal


Attended Cactus High School. All-state defensive end in Arizona who led the state with 20 quarterback sacks as a senior and had 31 in his career. Ranked second in the west in that category by Metropolitan Sports Review.
