Pick Analysis: In addition to being a very good college punter, Cole has excelled off the field. He averaged 43.7 yards per punt in 2017, and 23 of his 54 kicks stopped inside the 20-yard line (14 fair catches, just four touchbacks). He was also a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy and a member of the American Football Coaches Association's Good Works Team, partially due to his five spring breaks spent on mission trips in Kenya. He also punted well in 2018, his final year with the Wolfpack (42.4 average, 22 of 49 inside the 20, 16 fair catches, four touchbacks). Cole earned N.C. State's punting job as a true freshman, averaging 41.7 yards, and placing 28 of 66 kicks inside the 20 (26 fair catches, six touchbacks). He put up similar statistics (41.3 average, 20 fair catches, 16 inside 20 and five touchbacks).
