LOOK: Rookie tight end Cole Kmet dons Bears' home uniform
Chicago Bear's second-round selection Cole Kmet was the team's first selection in the NFL Draft 2020, and he will start his rookie season with considerable pressure to perform in his first year. Sure, the bears have forced veteran Jimmy Graham to start at the tight end, but it is Kmet who offers Chicago's most playful offensive from this position.
Bear fans got a glimpse of what it will look like in Chicago's navy and orange when Panini released his rookie premiere photo on Wednesday. Listen:

In contrast to previous years, Panini was forced to incorporate this year's rookie crop into their NFL uniforms due to social distancing restrictions in the fight against COVID-19. I don't think anyone will complain about the product. In fact, it's pretty cool to see Kmet in an action photo instead of the traditional poses that are often used for this first deck of cards.
Kmet is one of 42 players featured in this year's rookie premiere.
The bears picked Kmet for the 43rd overall win after registering 43 catches for 515 yards and six touchdowns for Notre Dame in 2019. He is considered an up-and-coming player who has not reached his full potential as a receiver, what exactly the role is. He will have to fill Chicago in the not too distant future. He will start his career with Graham before taking on the job in the middle of this season.
