Film study: New Bears TE Cole Kmet brings versatility to offense

Take a look at what the Bears’ new tight end brings to the table.

NCAA Football: Southern California at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears went local for their first pick of the 2020 NFL draft, selecting Notre Dame tight end and St. Viator alum Cole Kmet with the No. 43 overall pick.

The 6-foot-6, 262-pound Kmet is a sizable tight end prospect who finished the 2019 season with 43 catches, 515 yards and 6 touchdowns. While the value at which the Bears selected him was admittedly questionable, he projects as a good complement for Jimmy Graham—serving as a ‘Y’ tight end as opposed to Graham being a ‘U’—and can develop into a solid starter down the line.

To give you all a quick breakdown on what to expect from Kmet, I posted a thread of videos on Twitter that showcase a bit of what he brings to the table:

What do you guys think of the selection of Kmet at No. 43? Make sure to sound off in the comments, or in the reply section of my Twitter thread.
