Tight End, 6'3", 245 lbs.
Like kickers, tight ends never get the sort of rating they deserve. Freitag is also the 20th-ranked tight end in the country, further displaying he is underrated.
He's not the cream of the crop, and that may be due to the fact that he'd be a better fullback at "normal" schools, but Alabama makes tight ends out of fullbacks.
Scout.com says he has good hands, yet is a bit slow as a downfield threat, but he loves to hit and make crushing blocks to spring the running backs to success.
I reckon it's safe to say he piqued running back commit T.J. Yeldon's interest.
Alabama uses a two tight end set, and I don't see that changing under Nick Saban, even with a new offensive coordinator. That leaves a lot of room for Freitag to get playing time.
Freitag could succeed Michael Williams as the supreme run-blocking tight end, or he could soften his hands up a bit more and play H-back.
He already has good size, but under strength coach Scott Cochran, this guy could hit 260 pounds easily and become one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the country.
When another Alabama running back travels to New York as a Heisman finalist I'll come back and say, "Yep, there's Kurt Freitag launching him into the end zone."
