2017 Season Outlook:

Cole Kmet has a lot of potential. This year is not the year that he will show how good of a football player he is. By all accounts, he is an outstanding pass catcher. Kmet has room to grow as a blocker. The most important part of Cole Kmet’s freshman year will be the progress he makes in the weight room and in improving his blocking technique. With plenty of talent ahead of him, Kmet should not see any meaningful game action. Look for him to flash in mop up duty.
