After parting ways with veteran long snapper Nick Sundberg this offseason, the Washington Football Team added one Saturday by drafting Michigan's Camaron Cheeseman in the sixth round (225th overall).
Cheeseman (6-foot-4, 230 pounds) appeared in 39 career games and earned special teams player of the week for his performance against Middle Tennessee in 2019. An aspiring dentist, Cheeseman was a two-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar.
Having opted out of the 2020 season, Cheeseman, who's first name means shrimp in Spanish, returned to Ohio to prepare for the NFL Draft. He brought a tripod for his iPod so he could watch video of himself. He then sent that film to coach Casey Casper of Kohl's Kicking, Punting, and Long Snapping.
