Cole Kmet
21-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Immediately after spending a second-round draft pick on Kmet, making him the first tight end selected this year, GM Ryan Pace noted that Kmet will be the inline (blocking) tight end while Jimmy Graham serves as the receiving option. In any case, tight ends selected after the first round of the NFL Draft very rarely have much fantasy value in their first season, and especially those who are ticketed to be blockers. Of course, the fact that Kmet may be close to a full-time player could lead to him getting a few targets each week, and there's a scenario where he scores a few touchdowns when the Bears are in their goal-line offense. Despite the possibility of the rookie seeing some production, it's very difficult to imagine a scenario in which he's a top-20 tight end option in fantasy leagues this year. Read Past Outlooks
Headed to Chicago
TEChicago Bears
April 24, 2020
The Bears selected Kmet in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 43rd overall.
ANALYSIS
Kmet (6-foot-6, 262) bears substantial resemblance to fellow former Notre Dame tight end Kyle Rudolph. Kmet is probably a bit more athletic though, with his 4.7-second 40-yard dash and 37-inch vertical indicating considerable pass-catching upside that Rudolph doesn't possess. Kmet could prove Chicago's top tight end from Day 1, even with Jimmy Graham paid an awful lot ($16 million over two years).
