Pittsburgh Steelers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 2 - Pick Number: 55 (PIT)

Freiermuth is seen as a bit of Gronk-lite by many (due to his 6' 5" bulked out frame) and he heads to the NFL after an impressive college career with the Lions in which he had 92 receptions for 1,185 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Freiermuth set the program record for most receiving touchdowns by a freshman tight end in 2018, and he is tied for the most career touchdown receptions for a Penn State tight end. Freiermuth is a big target over the middle and boxes out defenders when he lines up on the outside. He's sure-handed with the frame and toughness to make contested catches.

A great route runner that can cause match-up problems for cornerbacks due to his size (especially when coupled with his athleticism) and someone who seems to enjoy his blocking assignments. He has good but not great speed to make plays down the seam and can easily picks up yards after the catch, but he's hardly a jitterbug, and not going to pull away or make many defenders miss.

He also has a good feel for working and in zones and has outstanding hands. He takes some big hits at the catch point and still manages to hold on to the ball. He has a big catch radius and his concentration is excellent

Overall, we view him as a quality prospect, who will likely be picked at the top of round two

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
