1.Kyle Pitts—Florida

College Position:TE, Outside WR, Slot WR

Pro Position: Move TE, Top 2 Target in an offense. Matchup nightmare

HT: 6’5”

WT: 240







Pros:   Tight end with WR skills who on film lined up against 2 potential 1st round CB in Jaycee Horn and Patrick Surtain II.  He won on routes on the outside vs the elite CB.  Can run a full route tree from any spot on the field.  Pitts uses his body well to box out defenders, shows the ability to high point passes and provides YAC. Pitts is a total offensive weapon in the pass game.  The way to maximize him in the run game is put him in motion to get momentum, chip block or play him off the line which allows him to gain momentum going into the 2nd level to find a block.  

Cons: Struggles as an on the line, inline TE blocking in the run or in pass protection..

Player Comparison: Calvin Johnson

Expected Round: Top 10

2. Pat Freiermuth—Penn State

College Position:Inline TE

Best pro fit: 3 down Inline TE


WT: 250 LBS







Pros: Freiermuth is a solid route runner with good catch radius.  He runs good short to intermediate routes, excels in the RPO pass game and is a tough tackle in the open field  He can line up Inline TE, block in the run game with good extension of his arms on his blocks to control defenders. Pat is a guy you’d love to use on WHAM blocks in the run game, is a red zone threat and plays with a high IQ in the scramble type plays.

Cons: He doesn’t show great burst off the line of scrimmage, real build up speed type guy. Despite a good catch radius, balls thrown in his frame are allowed to get into his body too often.

Player Comp: Tyler Eifert

Expected round: Round 2
