Congratulations are in order for one Cole Kmet as he declared for the NFL Draft yesterday. Kmet announced that he has decided to forego his final year of eligibility at Notre Dame to enter the NFL Draft with potential for an early second-round or late first-round pick. Cole was a major piece of Notre Dame’s offense, as tight ends always are for the Irish.
Kmet invested three years and 23 games in gold and blue, racking up impressive numbers before and after breaking his collarbone early in the 2019 season. He registered 60 receptions, 691 yards, and six touchdowns during his time at Notre Dame. With his decision, the Irish will be missing a huge cornerstone of their offense going forward. Junior Tommy Tremble and senior Brock Wright will be the next in line for the starting tight end spot Kmet has vacated.
