Florida Gator Kyle Pitts placed on a present at pro day.
The practically 6-6, 245-pound tight finish is, arguably, probably the most dazzling offensive weapon total within the 2021 NFL Draft, and any group trying so as to add an explosive and dynamic playmaker will probably be in on the Gator.
While Pitts’ phenomenal 2020 season in Florida put him within the first-round, his efficiency at Florida’s pro day might have solidified top-10 standing on this yr’s draft. Pitts posted an unofficial 4.44 40-yard sprint, which is ridiculous for his dimension.

To make Pitts’ run much more spectacular: He was coming off his line, that means he might have been even sooner had he stayed straight.
Pitts’ measurables even drew some comparisons to latest Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Calvin Johnson, together with his wingspan making headlines, because the longest in additional than 20 years.
Probably not honest to say Kyle Pitts is the Calvin Johnson of tight ends. But he’s shut, and I’m hard-pressed to give you a greater comparability.
