Thoughts? In 2019, Cole was named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Special Teams Player of the Year and was an all-conference first-team selection as a wide receiver and a returner. He caught 43 passes for 939 yards and 12 touchdowns. As a returner, he averaged 27 yards on kickoffs with a 100-yard touchdown and 26 yards on punts with a 74-yard score. The 5-9, 197-pound Curie grad made a name for himself at Northwestern’s pro day on March 10, running a 4.48 in the 40-yard dash and posting a 37.5-inch vertical jump. “That was my combine since I didn’t get a chance to get invited to the actual combine,” Cole said. The stakes were high. But he said, there was “no need to be nervous. I knew I had to make an impression, to prove I belong and can compete at the next level.” The various draft evaluators have taken notice.
