Pat Freiermuth NFL Draft Profile
Pat Freiermuth was a three-year contributor at Penn State. He is a very big and athletic player and can serve as a go-to man in a pinch or a do or die situation. In 2020, he transformed from someone who made a lot of catches, to someone who gained big yardage on his catches. Freiermuth is both a dominant route-runner and blocker, likely leading to him being one of the next great Big Ten tight ends in the NFL.
He can fall into that “boom or bust” category on a game by game basis. When he’s on a roll, he’s good for 100+ yards and 2-3 TDs without a sweat, but when he struggles – he struggles. He doesn’t possess the speed you’d want out of an athletic tight end. Freiermuth also doesn’t have the softest hands, dropping eight of 100 catchable targets.
