Pat Freiermuth - TE- Penn State
Welcome to the rookie profile for Pat Freiermuth. Freiermuth has great size for the position and has performed well in college. Plays very physically, but also able to bring the ball in if given the opportunity. Operating in the middle of the field, he is a safe pair of hands through contact, able to snatch the ball from defenders. In the open-field uses his size to break tackles from defensive backs, and able to create seperation from linebackers.

Weight: 251 lbs

Freiermuth is the second TE option in this class, after Kyle Pitts. Coming off the Penn State TE production line, he has good traits of a receiver. Has shown his ability to score, with 16 TDs in his college career.
Freiermuth has a long frame, and has good release at the line out of either a two-point or three-point stance. Good route runner, and able to get separation from defenders. His size gives him an advantage over defensive backs, and his burst gets him away from linebackers. Physical with the ball in the air, and with the ball in his hands.
One issue that Freiermuth has is good for fantasy. He isn’t a great blocker. Much better running routes than blocking on both running and passing plays. Doesn’t have great top end speed, which can lead to him being chased down in the open field
Pre Draft Analysis
Expected Draft Capital:
Friermuth would be great on an offense that uses TE. I’d love him on a team like the Colts, where the team has shown it’s ability to utilize the position. Equally a team like the Chargers could be a good spot.
