The Dallas Cowboys have arguably the best collection of wide receiver talent in the NFL with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb. That was on display in the Cowboys big win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. With all three under contract for 2021, there is a lot of optimism about the prospects of this offense moving forward.
However, that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t consider adding more talent to an already talented group. A lot of things could change over the next week if the Dallas Cowboys are able to win the NFC East, but with where they’re currently sitting in the 2021 NFL Draft order, there’s a possibility for them to add another elite offensive weapon; Tight End Kyle Pitts.
Kyle Pitts from the University of Florida is the latest big time pass catcher to be worthy of being selected in the top half of the first round. With as many as four quarterbacks going in the top ten picks, there’s a possibility Pitts falls outside of the top ten and the Cowboys could be the beneficiary.
But with so much talent catching passes — including Blake Jarwin returning from injury next season and the emergence Dalton Schultz — why would anyone consider taking a tight end in the top half of the draft when the Cowboys need defense?
Because he’s another game changing player for Dak Prescott and the offense to work with.
Kyle Pitts put on an incredible performance in 2020 catching 43 passes for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns. He averaged an incredible 17.9 yards per reception. Eight of those touchdowns came when Florida was in the red zone and five from inside the ten yard line.
He was an excellent red zone weapon for Kyle Trask and the Florida Gators. Standing 6-6 and weighing 246 pounds, the Philadelphia native has a ton of athleticism and upside.
With as good as Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz have been, Kyle Pitts has the ability to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL. And while the Cowboys need to find some answers for their defense heading into the 2021 offseason, adding another game changing weapon in the passing game like they did in 2020 with CeeDee Lamb will pay huge dividends for DakPrescott and the Dallas Cowboys.
When you’re selecting in the top 10-15 picks in the draft, you can’t afford to miss. The player you pick there has to be able to come in and be a game changing player. With the weapons around him, Pitts would have a lot of room to run as teams focus their attention on the Cowboys’ wide receiver trio.
