It’s rare that prospects get universal love across all spectrums in the draft process, but this draft had two of them and we will be talking about the other guy next. Kyle Pitts has been hailed as the greatest tight end prospect to ever come out and he gets that rare hall of fame grade from a lot of analysts.

Pitts will be going into one of the best positions that he could possibly ask for, with one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Matt Ryan and other weapons beside him in Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley.

New Falcons head coach Arthur Smith loves using multiple tight end sets and that should help Pitts flourish. Pitts has unmatched athleticism for his size and is an excellent candidate for a big play anytime he steps on the field.

Pitts can be an elite weapon for this Falcons offense and I think he could challenge for a spot in the Pro Bowl in his rookie year.
