- 2022 projected role: Developmental tight end with high pass-catching upside
Pros: Zack Kuntz is a former top recruit whose physical gifts are evident of a top prospect. He is a long and well-built tight end who has outstanding size. At 6-foot-8 he towers over opposing defenders and is a mismatch nightmare. Kuntz is an advanced pass-catcher who runs good routes and understands how to uncover. He works leverage, finds soft spots in zones, and knows how to make himself available for his quarterback on scramble drills. For a longer athlete, he shows good flexibility and ability to sink to get in and out of breaks. He has excellent hands, body control, and ball-tracking ability and can easily high-point the football in contested situations. He has above-average speed to stretch the seam and is strong after the catch. He has the ability to align all over the formations having been utilized from F, slot, and outside.
Cons: Zack Kuntz is much more of a receiving specialist than a well-rounded tight end. He is essentially the team’s primary option in the passing game and the offense runs through him. Because of that, he isn’t relied upon as a blocker in the run game. When he is asked to block, he does show good power but he plays high and loses battles of leverage. He is more of a long strider than an explosive athlete.
