Strengths 

Kolar has great frame and size for his position. With that, he has elite athleticism for his size. His cutting ability paired with his flexibility makes him smooth in and out of his breaks. He is extremely talented pass catcher. He has soft hands and rarely drops the football. He is technician with his route running, which allows for him to create seperation and make big plays. He has a large catch radius with an 80/20 ball mentality. Kolar is is a swiss army knife and can line up anywhere in the offense in hurt you. He is great spacial awareness that allows for him to pick zone defense apart.

Weaknessess

The biggest thing holding Kolar back is his blocking ability. He too often gets beat on the line of scrimmage, when run blocking. He has poor footwork when blocking in space causing too many missed blocks. He often has his hands outside of the chest plate, which allows deffenders to easily defend him. He does not play as strong as he should for a player his size. He lacks the home run hitting speed to create big plays after the catch.

Big Picture

There is no denying Kolar's production with the Cyclones. His big frame paired with his off the chart receiving abilities makes him an exciting day 2 option. He is a natural pass catcher, who runs routes with ease for a player his size. He is aggressive at the catch point and utilizes his body to wall off denders making it impossible for defenders to swat it away. He will have to sharpen his run blocking skills to be an effective tight end at the next level. He is a smart and intuitive player, if he can put it all together...look out. Kolar proved he can line up anywhere in the offense and find success. I see him as a TE2 upon entering the league with the potential to become a TE1.
