Yeah, a few tried, BG got it done in a big wayThat would be one hell of a ringing endorsement for UF. I know I'm just repeating myself but Toney's transformation is nothing short of miraculous. Billy G can fucking coach WR.
Kyle Pitts is one of the most dominant receiving prospects we’ve seen at the tight end position. Travis Kelce was a third-round selection. Darren Waller was a receiver convert from college, and he plays at a different level than guys like Noah Fant.
Pitts is a legitimate X-receiver in a tight end’s frame. He can line up out wide and use his frame and athleticism as a deep threat down the sideline. Pitts can sink his hips and separate on whip and return routes underneath. He can be a menace over the short middle area of the field because of his length.
What isn’t discussed enough, however, is his abilities as a blocker. He is more than just a glorified receiver. This young man puts in the work when he has his hand in the dirt.
Pitts is not necessarily a people mover, but he is very often in the correct position to use his leverage to seal running lanes for backs. Admittedly, the fit with OC Jason Garrett should scare some out there who remember years of six-yard Jason Witten option routes. Nevertheless, the Giants desperately need weapons on offense, and Pitts offers just that in this 2021 2-round NFL mock draft.
Oh yeah, the draft sims are just a rabbit hole of "how is it 7 pm?"this can be a colossal time waster. and because no player is a 100% lock to go at any spot you'll randomly see shit like trevor lawence falling to #9 lol
Was thinking that or the fact that the Giants have the pick before the 49ers.Haha. It's corrected now. Must have been thinking of the baseball team.
“Basically, they tailored a package to his skill set. ‘We’re going to do these routes and get the ball in your hands.’ I kind of liked the kid. He was very real. He’s got some swagger. He actually has, like, two (recorded) albums and three additional singles. It’s a concern whether he has enough commitment to do it at this level with all the stuff he has going on.”
Next month.When is the real draft?
Yeah, I saw that and thought, "has he hacked into the collective mind of scouting and changed history?"uh
He has physical gifts, for sure. But he gets beat for the ball too often in my opinion. And yes, he obviously got a lot of vitriol (much of it deserved) and that has def clouded partial people.some of the vitriol towards him last year was a bit much and he would be an attractive pick in the later rounds, but that would basically put him in the top 50
While there is a chance a team is desperate enough to inquire about the Bengals’ pick at No. 5 in an attempt to secure Mac Jones, I expect there to be a calmer market for the former ‘Bama quarterback’s services. And if that is the case and the team’s phone isn’t ringing with trade-down offers, Cincinnati should sprint the card in for Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.
Pitts and former Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell are similar in that they’re both arguably the best prospects we’ve seen at their respective positions in five-plus years. You can’t go wrong with either player at No. 5 overall, but the bigger impact in the wins column (and Joe Burrow’s development) comes with adding Pitts as a weapon for the offense than securing Sewell's services as an upgrade over either former first-round pick Jonah Williams or newly signed veteran Riley Reiff.
Pitts can immediately be the Bengals’ top receiving option and a top-five tight end in the NFL as a rookie — he’s that good.
