The Chicago Bears made a few selections in the 2020 NFL Draft but Cole Kmet is more than likely one that was influenced by Matt Nagy.
The Chicago Bears were a bit busy during the 2020 NFL Draft. For the second year in a row, they didn’t have a first-round pick thanks to the Khalil Mack Deal with the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders. Well, that made their second-round selections that much more important. They made two but the first one at pick 43 was for a tight end from Notre Dame named Cole Kmet.
The pick was clearly one that fits the mold of a “Matt Nagy pick.” Nagy is a coach that runs a very particular type of offense and it needs a tight end. The Bears offense was putrid in 2019 and having no legit tight end option was a big part of the problem. They had the second-worst production at the position in the entire National Football League. That needed to improve in order to get things done in 2020 and beyond.
