Notre Dame TE Cole Kmet, good fit at a need spot for the Bears.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 24, 2020
Kmet was widely considered to be the best tight end in the draft, but a huge run on wide receivers and a lack of other good tight ends helped push Kmet back a few spots (and because the Patriots did Patriot things).
Bear fans should be quite familiar with Kmet — and he’s quite familair with them. Chicago was Kmet’s favorite team as a kid, growing up not too far from Chicago.
This is the first Notre Dame player selected in this year’s draft, and it keeps a strong streak going of Notre Dame starting tight ends being drafted in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft (11th all-time in the first 2 rounds for ND).
