Georgia Tech Football: Broderick Snoddy Needs More Touches

The most electrifying play during Georgia Tech’s 38-19 win over Wofford was the 65-yard scamper by Broderick Snoddy.

Snoddy has world-class speed and the capability to be a serious threat if he is given the football in space.

If Snoddy was matched up on linebackers every so often in the passing game, would they be able to keep up with him in a route? Probably not, and that is why he needs more touches.

We saw on Saturday that virtually no one is able to get an angle on him if he has a full head of steam and daylight in front of him.

There is a lot of congestion in the backfield and touches are limited for everyone not named Zach Laskey, Synjyn Days, or Tony Zenon.

Even with that being said, Paul Johnson has a potential home run hitter in Snoddy that is very capable of opening other things up for his offense because of the threat he poses with his speed.

Is this to say that Snoddy should touch the rock 10 to 15 times a game? No, not at all!

But just like most home run hitters in baseball, four or five attempts at the plate should be a feasible amount.

Snoddy touched the ball twice on Saturday and totaled 74 yards on the day. That was the fourth most yards from scrimmage on the team in that game and an average of 37 yards per touch.

It would be foolish to think that he is always going to have games like he did Saturday with the limited amount of touches he had. However, he needs to get the attempts to be able to go yards since he is so explosive.

Perhaps when Tech plays against Tulane next Saturday, Snoddy will get a few more opportunities to tote the rock and make a big play.
