Tight End

  • Kyle Pitts, Florida
  • Pat Freiermuth, Penn State

The potential of the 2021 NFL Draft class at tight end is tremendous, but there are a lot of guys who probably need at least one more season before they can solidify their NFL Draft stock.

There are, as always, a couple of exceptions.

I think the two primary exceptions here are Florida’s Kyle Pitts and Penn State’s Pat Freiermuth.

Pitts is a fascinating player to watch with the ability to play and experience in-line, flexed out, and pretty much everywhere else in the Florida offense. He’s a player who can truly line up anywhere in your offense and make plays.

Freiermuth is a different type of athlete, but highly productive and in a similar boat in terms of his positional flexibility within an offense.

Both of these guys seem like pretty sure bets for the NFL as far as their instant translatability.
