Player Notes Pros

  • Incredible two-sport athlete who played both football and baseball for the Fighting Irish

  • Release off line of scrimmage is smooth, very comfortable getting out of 3 point stance

  • Versatile threat as an in-line player who can both block or go out for passes

  • Zone buster, very natural feel for adjusting routes to take advantage of coverage spacing

  • Ball skills are excellent, makes great adjustments to the ball, tracking it in all directions

  • Kmet has the upside to be an effective starter or frequent option in 12 personnel sets

  • Offers enough nuance to bring separation on hard angled routes despite lack of juice

  • Big frame and notable extension skills provide him opportunities to haul in any throw

  • Second effort plays often stand out, recovers as blocker & peels back to help teammates

  • Hands catcher with good hand eye coordination, shown soft hands on hot throws

  • Clean at the top of routes to flip himself back to the line of scrimmage 

  • Quick and effective rolling through his breaks to create separation from defenders

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Inexperienced blocker, is often off target with his hands & not very reliable

  • Functional athleticism is modest, isn’t going to win the majority of foot races

  • Hands are still developing and he isn’t immune to making some double catches

  • Don’t think he's a dynamic separator, he’ll be reliant on technique, ball skills & scheme
