Duke Field Goal Posts

Posted April 28, 2018 | Bret

In a very big year for specialists in the NFL Draft, a total of 5 Kohl's specialists were taken by teams in the 7 rounds. 20 of the last 25 specialists taken in the NFL Draft have worked with a Kohl's coach, and many in prep for their shot with NFL teams. 3 of the last 4 long snappers taken have worked with a Kohl's Snapping Coach.

With the conclusion of the 2018 NFL Draft, now undrafted free agent signings will pick up. Many of the specialists currently in the NFL landed as a UDFA.

We wish these athletes the best of luck in their pursuit at the highest level of football!
