Cole Kmet, and Albert Okwuegbunam

With the release of Trey Burton, tight end has become more of a need than it was a few weeks ago. Sure, the Chicago Bears added Demetrius Harris and Jimmy Graham this offseason. Still, Graham is getting older, and Harris is not trustworthy yet.

The Bears have a lot of depth, but it would not be surprising if they saw a tight end that they valued, that they would make a move.

When looking at mock drafts, the two most connected are Albert O from Missouri and Cole Kmet.

Kmet is a player we have been highlighting for weeks now. We have compared him to Martellus Bennett and looked into what he can provide in both the pass and run game. Many see him as the top tight end, and at 20 years old, he has more upside than any others.

Albert O ran a blazing 40 yard that only a few tight ends in combine history have. At his size, all have at least turned into a serviceable back up tight end. As a rookie, he could grow behind Graham, and provide another substantial red zone target.

They could look for later round options at tight end, or look for the long list of depth names to step up. However, if they draft a tight end, these are the two to look for.
