Former Penn State Tight End Zack Kuntz Declares For 2023 NFL Draft

Former Penn Stater and current Old Dominion tight end Zack Kuntz is forgoing his final year of eligibility and declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft, as he announced in an Instagram post on Monday.

“After a lot of thought and prayer, I am pleased to announce that I will be entering the 2023 NFL Draft. I look forward to representing the monarchs at the next level.”

Kuntz, a Pennsylvania native, entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer in February 2021. In his 21 career games as a Nittany Lion, Kuntz caught three passes for 26 yards. He appeared in seven games for Penn State in 2020 but didn’t record any receptions.

The former four-star prospect had better luck at Old Dominion, as he totaled 73 receptions for 692 yards and five touchdowns in 2021, finishing second in receptions among the nation’s tight ends. This season, he posted 12 receptions for 144 yards and two touchdowns in five games before suffering a season-ending injury.

In June, Sports Illustrated projected Kuntz as a sixth-round pick. Former Penn State football player Adam Breneman, on the other hand, thinks that Kuntz “will be one of the top tight ends drafted in 2023.
