Zack Kuntz
Old Dominion Monarchs


One-Liner:

A big, tall, athletic, strong pass-catcher with P5 pedigree, who has emerged as one of the most dynamic tight end prospects in the nation.

Evaluation:

Blessed with great size and speed, Kuntz can stretch the field or serve as red zone mismatch. He runs solid routes and displays superb quickness. An adequate blocker, he especially thrives in run blocking. Has struggled with an occasional bout of the dropsies and needs to continue to improve his overall blocking. The Pennsylvania native is a huge target who is the ultimate underneath security blanket and a former all-state track star in high school. His combination of size, speed and agility is ideal for the tight end position and there is a strong chance that Kuntz hears his name called come April.

Grade:

6th Round

Quotes:

“For some guys, it can be a gut check. I had some struggles with that and needed time to develop my frame going from high school to college. But I started to become a lot more confident player and a lot more comfortable player and I think that is the first step in becoming an elite player, being comfortable.” – Zack Kuntz on his maturation
