STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) – He made an impact at Penn State almost instantly. Now, he hopes to take that same path into an NFL career.
Pat Freiermuth will leave Penn State as with All-American honors and more touchdowns than any other tight end in school history. He started as a true freshman and dominated the Big Ten ever since.
The two-time team captain totaled 92 catches, 1,185 yards, and 16 touchdowns in his Penn State career. Pro Football Focus places Freiermuth as the second-best tight end in the draft class behind Florida’s Kyle Pitts.
He missed the final five games of the 2020 season with a shoulder injury. He had surgery and said at Pro Day that he was two to three weeks away from completely healed.
