3. Cole Kmet, Albert Okwuegbunam impressed

The fastest 40-yard dash was run by Albert Okwuegbunam from Missouri at a blistering 4.49. Albert definitely caught the attention of every tight end needy team in the league with a great run. But a guy who was more consistent throughout multiple drills was Cole Kmet from Notre Dame.

Kmet finished with the fourth-best 40 time (4.70), highest vertical jump (37 inches) and second-longest broad jump (123 inches). He also showed off his strong blocking ability, which he has been highly touted for. If Kmet can develop as a pass-catcher, he can be a guy we will be getting used to watching on Sundays.

Adam Trautman from Dayton also showed off some good agility, running the quickest three-cone drill (6.78) and tied for the second-fastest 20-yard shuttle (4.27).

Overall, I don’t think any of these tight ends stood out enough to raise their stock into the first round. However, this is a solid group of players and you could see 2-3 of these guys go off the board on Day 2.
