The 2016 NFL Draft was a special weekend for longtime Kohl's Kicking Camp athletes. The first major highlight of the NFL Draft for Kohl's specialists came in just the 2nd round, when kicker Roberto Aguayo of Florida State was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The pick makes Aguayo the highest draft pick for a kicker in the past 11 years. The first punter to be selected in the 2016 NFL Draft came in the 6th round when the San Diego Chargers selected Drew Kaser or Texas A&M. Then, in the 7th round the Denver Broncos selected Riley Dixon of Syracuse. All athletes have been a regular part of the Kohl's Kicking program.

Immediately following the NFL Draft, a long list of kickers, punters and snappers from the Kohl's program were offerred contracts, mini camp and training camp opportunities. The running list is as follows..
