Draft Profile: Bio
Zack Kuntz from Camp Hill High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Kuntz opted to join Penn State.

In 2018 as a freshman Kuntz saw action in just one game for the Nittany Lions as he made one reception for just 8 yards for an average of 8.0 yards per reception, with no TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 100.0.

As a sophomore in 2019 he played 4 games and had just 2 catches for 18 yards for an average of 9.0 yards per catch, with no TDs, and QB rating when targeted of 82.6. In pass protection he gave up 3 pressures and no sacks.

As a junior in 2020 he played 4 games and made no impact as a receiver.

After the end of the season Kuntz transferred to Old Dominion where as a senior in 2021 he played 13 games and had an outstanding 73 catches for 692 yards for an average of 9.5 yards per catch, 5 TDs, and QB rating when targeted of 78.4. In pass protection he gave up one pressure and no sacks.

As a fifth year senior in 2022 he played 5 games and had just 12 catches for just 144 yards for an average of 12.0 yards per catch, 2 TDs, and QB rating when targeted of 83.0.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as Kuntz is taking the top off a defense
  • Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #11. He wrote "At 6-8 1/4, 251 pounds, Kuntz is an eye-popping blend of great size and athleticism. This offseason he clocked a 4.57 40 to go with his 40-inch vertical and 10-8 broad jump. His explosiveness is also reflected in a 365-pound clean."
  • Has good hand-eye coordination and body control to turn and adjust to poorly thrown balls.
  • Good quickness off the snap. Has good speed for the position to attack the seam. Shows burst out of his breaks to gain separation.
  • Among his better attributes. Gains a quick, clean release and has enough speed to challenge deep.
  • Teams that want a thumper and extra blocker on the line of scrimmage must look elsewhere, but he can be billed as a super-sized wideout with the hands, athleticism and size to star in the NFL.
  • A lean athlete with obvious upside. Soft hands. Flashes the ability to make the outstanding catch.
  • When used downfield, he shows the ball-tracking skills and hand-eye coordination to make the adjustment on underthrown balls and back-shoulder throws.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Kuntz lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, Kuntz isn’t great on contested catches.
  • His playing speed is less than elite. Kuntz won’t run past defenders like he did at the college level.
  • Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
