One player Pittsburgh could go after in the third round if he is still there is Penn State’s Pat Freiermuth. He is ranked as the second-best tight end prospect by most scouts.

Along the same lines as Freiermuth is Boston College’s Hunter Long. He is also big but not fast. Long is a good blocker and can be a nice compliment to a guy like Eric Ebron.MORE NEWS: Stimulus Check Update: Is A Fourth Relief Payment Coming?
