The Pittsburgh Steelers got their guy in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft when they selected Pat Freiermeuth, tight end out of Penn State. After the pick was made, Steelers fans were excited to welcome the newest member of the organization. Some of the organizational excitement was caught on tape, and is worth sharing.

If you want to hear what new tight end coach Alfredo Roberts had to think about a tight end being the team’s second pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, look no further. I think it is easy to say he really like this prospect, and the two clearly hit it off at the Penn Stat Pro Day this past spring.
'The energy he exudes, he is a serious but fun guy. He has position flexibility. He is going to be kind of a throwback tight end because he can play the position, he can do multiple things.' - TE Coach Alfredo Roberts on @pat_fry5— Teresa Varley (@Teresa_Varley) May 1, 2021
