Zack Kuntz - TE - Old Dominion
Welcome to the rookie profile for Zack Kuntz. Kuntz feels like an inconsistent profile. Seems to have speed at times, but can also struggle with the same thing. His frame though is consistent, which combined with his arm span, will make him a great redzone target for an NFL team. For fantasy, he is going to be one of those best ball targets that could pop for a few TDs.

Kuntz was a 4-star recruit, before signing for Penn State. In his freshman season Kuntz only got on the field one time in his freshman season, following it up with 2 in 2019. In fact, it was only after transferring to Old Dominion where he managed to play double-digit games, as well as get into the endzone for the first time in college.
In the two years he played for Old Dominion, he played 18 games, catching 85 passes for 836 yards and 7 TDs. Ultimately, Kuntz really saw limited action in his college career, which will only increase questions for NFL teams with his limited blocking ability.
Kuntz is a huge player, with a huge amount of height along with his arm span. Along with his vertical jump, he has redzone target written all over him. Has good hands though, and can adjust his body for inaccurate passes. Plays well against zone coverage, as he has typically found a way to be open in the coverage.
Kuntz doesn’t have the acceleration to create separation consistently, and can struggle at getting the ball in contested catches downfield. That is in part due to his struggle to get enough speed up to make a difference, and his lack of acceleration off the line.
Pre Draft Analysis
Expected Draft Capital- Round 6/7
Kuntz needs to get on a team that runs two TE sets often if he is going to see the field. If he does, he is going to need an accurate QB who is happy to throw the ball into tight areas for Kuntz to compete for the ball.
