Sam Scroggins Scouting Report

LS Sam Scroggins (West Virginia State) - Undrafted Free Agent

I know what you're thinking. "A scouting report for a long snapper?  What's the point?"  While I agree that there's not much to say about a long snapper, he is the only rookie I haven't done a scouting report for, so I figured I might as well put up a post to wrap up this series until next year. 

Experts' Opinions

As expected, there's nothing out there on Scroggins.  He is a long snapper, after all.


Shockingly, there actually is a video of Scroggins practicing:

Outlook for 2010

Long snapper Don Muhlbach has been with the Lions since 2004, when he was signed as an undrafted free agent.  Muhlbach did have some injury issues last year, but Dominic Raiola filled in for him as the Lions' long snapper and did just fine.  I can't see Scroggins suddenly taking Muhlbach's spot away from him, so my guess is this move was made simply so the Lions' have someone they could potentially bring in if Muhlbach suffered an injury that kept him out for more than a few weeks.
