Camaron Cheeseman is officially off the board!
The former long snapper for the Michigan Wolverines has been drafted in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. At pick No. 225, the Washington Football Team made the move to grab Cheeseman. He becomes the second long snapper drafted in this year’s sixth round, following Alabama’s Thomas Fletcher who was picked at No. 222.

Cheeseman appeared in 39 career games and was a letter winner from 2017-19. He was the long snapper in all 13 games of the 2019 season for the Wolverines.
According to Harry Lyles Jr. with ESPN, Cheeseman opted out of the 2020 season after head coach Jim Harbaugh told him his scholarship was unavailable. Cheeseman moved back home when the B1G season was canceled and was out of options by the time the season was reinstated.
Cheeseman becomes the first long snapper of the Wolverines to be drafted. Hopefully, he is able to land the starting job and lock it down long-term in Washington.
