Third round (first pick): Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State
Somewhat surprisingly, the Washington Football Team didn’t address the tight end position at all in their 2020 crop.
Injuries really limited what could have been a great career for Jordan Reed, but the team decided to move on this offseason. They were able to get a nice undrafted steal in LSU’s Thaddeus Moss, whose abilities as a blocker are a bit overshadowed by his namesake.
Entering his third season with the Cyclones, Charlie Kolar is a name to keep on the radar in a potentially deep class of tight ends in the 2021 NFL Draft.
After catching three touchdowns in his freshman campaign, Kolar caught seven touchdowns from Brock Purdy in 2019 and reeled in 51 passes total for 697 yards, very strong numbers from the tight end spot.
Washington needs more weapons in the passing game, and the 6-foot-6, 252-pound Kolar could be a big one for Dwayne Haskins.
