Atlanta Falcons long snapper Josh Harris (47) during organized team activities at the Falcons training facility in 2012.


Editor's note: Auburn has a rich history of sending players to the NFL. With that in mind, beat writer Ryan Black takes a look at each former Tiger that finds himself on an NFL roster (or should be once free agency and training camps shake out). The series will begin with those who have already been in the league for more than one season and conclude with the latest crop of players to land in the NFL, either through the draft or as an undrafted free agent.

Josh Harris, Atlanta Falcons

Position: Long snapper

Drafted: Undrafted in 2012; signed by Falcons as an undrafted free agent

Career stats (through two seasons): Appeared in all 32 regular season games for Atlanta the past two years

2014 outlook: This entry is nearly a carbon copy of the previous installment of this series: Like fellow Auburn alum Ben Grubbs, Harris has participated in every game for his team the past two years. And like Grubbs, it doesn't appear that's going to change any time soon. He's the only long snapper on Atlanta's roster, after all, and it won't bring in another one unless Harris is felled by an injury.
