With the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft, many Kohl's athletes 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, in the last 7 years an average of 3 Kohl's athletes were taken by teams during the 7 rounds of the NFL Draft each year. In 2018, 62 Kohl's athletes were on NFL rosters for week 1 of the NFL Preseason while 43 went on to start in NFL regular season games.
20 of the last 25 NFL drafted specialists over the past 6 years have been Kohl's Kicking attendees. 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.
