Pat Freiermuth ‘Excited’ To Learn From Eric Ebron And Learn Role In 12 Personnel

One of the most important weapons in an offense’s arsenal is the element of unpredictability. Arguably the most flexible personnel package is the ‘12’ grouping, which features one running back, two tight ends, and two wide receivers, though the key is to have tight ends who are capable of both blocking and being a threat in the passing game.

With the second-round selection of Pat Freiermuth out of Penn State in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping to have enriched their capability of employing this personnel package in the upcoming season, and potentially adding a greater air of unpredictability in their schemes.
