Tight Ends

Players to Watch: Pat Freiermuth, Brevin Jordan

The tight end position was one that general manager Brandon Beane mentioned at the end of the season that he hoped to improve this offseason. They did add free agent Jacob Hollister and he should compete for the starting job with Dawson Knox during training camp.

However, on Day 2 there are two players that could make sense that not only could compete but earn the starting job as a rookie. The first is Pat Freiermuth out of Penn State who is an athletic tight end that can help stretch the field and be a reliable pass catcher in the middle for Josh Allen. He is the second-best tight end in this class behind Kyle Pitts, who went to the Atlanta Falcons.

If the Bills hope to select Freiermuth he is a player they likely would have to trade up into the middle of the second round if they hope to add him to the team.

Another option would be tight end Brevin Jordan from the University of Miami. In my opinion, he is the best fit for what the Buffalo Bills need and could be great value for the third round. He may not be the pass-catcher that Freiermuth is but he is a better blocker. Jordan also is a player who improved every year in college and could continue to develop at the NFL level.
