To the surprise of no one, Penn State junior tight end Pat Freiermuth announced his intention to enter the 2021 NFL Draft.
Despite being a sophomore last year, Freiermuth was actually eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft because he did a post-grad year of high school. Fortunately for Penn State fans, Freiermuth decided to come back for his third season — though, the 2020 season didn’t exactly go as planned. Freiermuth played just four games before a shoulder injury ended his season prematurely.
Regardless of how his last season went, Freiermuth will go down as one of the best tight ends in Penn State history, and should be a top two round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Freiermuth ends his career with 92 receptions, 1,185 yards, and 16 touchdowns in 29 games played.
Thanks for the memories, Pat. Best of luck in the NFL.
