    The Legacy

Posted April 25, 2023 | Bret

Each year at the NFL Draft, many specialists hope to hear their name called on draft day. While the chances of hearing any specialist's name called during an NFL Draft is slim, Kohl's athletes have made up 33 of the last 44 specialists selected in the NFL Draft. Last season, 76 Kohl's athletes suited up for the NFL Preseason, and an astounding 71 went on to start in NFL regular season games.

75% of the NFL drafted specialists over the past 10 years have been Kohl's Kicking attendees, with the majority training with the Kohl's staff in prep for the NFL Combine and tryouts. This stat is the single biggest indicator of the credibility that has been built over the past 20+ years of running a premier camp.

Here's a look at the history of Kohl's attendees who have heard their name called on their respective draft days, as well as how involved they've been with the Kohl's staff over the course of their careers.
