With one of the more talent-rich years for top-end specialists heading into the NFL Draft, we want to congratulate the Kohl's athletes who heard their names called during the NFL Draft, and who also will continue to sign with teams as undrafted free agents post-draft.
This Kohl's draft class of specialists embodies what hard work is, and what it takes to be the very best you can be. From high school to the pros, this draft class has been working at their craft every step of the way.
"To see 3 of the guys who have spent the most time with our staff over the last 4 months training for this moment-- following us to Texas, Florida, Phoenix to get work-- to be the first K/P's off the draft board makes us extremely proud to see their hard work pay off.
It's not just the athletes that heard their names called, either. There are a number of guys post-draft that have set themselves up to make a legitimate run at an NFL roster spot."
-Coach Jamie Kohl, Kohl's Camp Director
