Biography: Four-year starter and previous All-Conference selection. Senior totals included 61/1/1 after 58/3/6.5 as a junior. Career totals of 96/8/14.5 came during his sophomore season. Experience at middle linebacker and on the strong side.
Positives: Hard-working college linebacker with marginal size/speed numbers. Very aggressive, effectively diagnoses the action, and chases around the field working to make plays. Disciplined with assignments, scrapes well laterally, and wraps up tackling. Hard-hitting and aggressively lazy shoulders into ball handlers.
Negatives: Stiff, lacks speed to the flanks or easily blocked from the action. Shows minimal skills in coverage.
Analysis: Snyder was a productive college linebacker, yet he possesses minimal upside for the next level. He could be kept on if he makes his mark on special teams this summer.
