With three of the four specialists taken in the 2021 NFL Draft, and the undrafted free agent signings that have followed, the legacy of Kohl's athletes moving on to the NFL has remained strong. With the opening of the Kohl's National Training Center in Texas, the ability for Kohl's NFL Draft eligible kickers, punters, and long snappers to prepare for the NFL Combine and Pro Day has reached a new level. NFL prospects are able to lock-in for high-level training with the Kohl's Professional Staff. This has proven effective for the majority of specialists taken by teams during and after the NFL Draft this week.

Here's a look at this year's turnout so far for this year's group of Kohl's NFL prospects:

2021 NFL Drafted Athletes

Even Mcphersono Draft Selection

5th Round: Evan McPherson (K) - Cincinnatti Bengals

Evan McPherson was the first specialist off of the board in the 2021 NFL Draft, selected by the Cincinnati Bengals. McPherson has a long history in the Kohl's program and was the No. 1 ranked Kohl's kicker in America coming out of high school. He was also selected at the Kohl's National Scholarship Camp to play in the Under Armour All-America Game, and trained with the staff leading into the NFL Draft at the Kohl's National Training Center.

Camarno Cheeseman Draft Selection

6th Round: Camaron Cheeseman (LS) - Washington Football Team

Camaron Cheeseman was selected in the 6th round by the Washington Football Team. Cheeseman was all-in this off-season in prep for his NFL shot, and put in quite a bit of work with Kohl's Snapping Director Casey Casper through the predraft process. He was a top 10, 5-star standout in high school with Kohl's Snapping. Cheeseman will fill the shoes of Kohl's Coach and 11-year NFL vet for Washington, Nick Sundberg.

Pressley Harvin Ig Draft

7th Round: Pressley Harvin (P) - Pittsburgh Steelers

In the 7th round, Pressley Harvin III was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Harvin has been a standout for years, winning the Kohl's National Scholarship Camp in high school more than once as an underclassman and holding the No.1 ranking spot for a large part of his high school career. Harvin has been a regular trainee of Coach Guigliano, Kohl's Regional Division Leader in South Carolina and Atlanta, since high school-- and was also named the best punter in college football this past season.
