Cole Kmet selected No. 43 by Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears have selected tight end Cole Kmet with the No. 43 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Chicago Bears finally find their long term answer at the tight end position. Jimmy Graham will likely keep Cole Kmet to a rotational role as a rookie, but he has the talent to win the snap battle as the season wears on. The most complete tight end in the 2020 NFL Draft, Kmet has plus receiving upside, but his strength as a blocker is what has kept him the consensus top tight end in the class. Cole Kmet projects as a borderline TE1 from 2021 onward.

Cole Kmet could be a ‘late first or early second’ round pick in the Draft

An AFC coach said that if you want to take Notre Dame TE Cole Kmet, “you're going to have to take him late first or early, early second.”

Fantasy Impact

Kmet has been compared to Kyle Rudolph by NFL scouts and his game is as steady as anyone’s at the tight end position. While the tight end position isn’t regarded as a very strong position in this year’s Draft, Kmet could surprise people and hear his name called late in the first round. He broke out his junior year at Notre Dame, catching 43 balls for 515 yards and six TDs. He’ll add a ton of value to a team in need of a tight end, and could even be on the radar in fantasy leagues depending on where he lands.

Cole Kmet labeled a ‘Kyle Rudolph-type guy’

Notre Dame TE Cole Kmet has been referred to as a “Kyle Rudolph-type guy,” by an NFL scout.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph, also a Notre Dame guy, was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 Draft by the Vikings. He’s been extremely consistent throughout his nine-year career in Minnesota, and has over 4,000 yards and 47 TDs to show for it. If Kmet can come anywhere close to the consistent player Rudolph has become, he’ll make for a great addition to most teams. One scout said of Kmet, “he’s got great intangibles. He can run. He can catch. He doesn’t have an elite trait but you really love the body type and everything about him.” It’s expected he’ll hear his name called on Day 2 (rounds 2-3) of the Draft.
