Dallas Cowboys Draft Option No. 6
Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State
It is very unlikely that the Dallas Cowboys would select a tight end with their tenth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Picking a tight end at number ten would be the biggest mistake the Dallas Cowboys could make. But crazier things have happened and if Dallas selects a tight end at ten Pat Freiermuth would be the best fit.

Pat Freiermuth would bring the Dallas Cowboys a impactful tight end with great hands that will carry over to the NFL. Some scouts would say that he possesses the same skill set as Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski. With his pass catching abilities he would be a great fit for todays NFL offenses.
Dallas Cowboys would not draft Pat Freiermuth to be a run blocking tight end but that can be worked on. In all likelihood the Dallas Cowboys go elsewhere with the number ten pick but if they were to draft a tight end he would be the one to take. Freiermuth is 6’5″ 250lbs which is great size for an NFL tight end.
With his size and frame the run blocking will come with time. If the Dallas Cowboys want to develop him into both a pass catching and run blocking tight end it is possible. Most likely it is something that Dallas Cowboys fans won’t have to worry about.
Dallas Cowboys have a better shot at drafting a quarterback with the number ten pick than a tight end. Which guy would you pick Cowboys Nation?
