Falcons can't pass up 'second coming of Travis Kelce' Kyle Pitts at No. 4


The Atlanta Falcons are just over a month away from the 2021 NFL Draft. There has been much speculation on which position the Falcons will target with their No. 4 overall pick including but not limited to quarterback and defensive end.

Radio.com NFL Insider Brian Baldinger joined Andy and Randy on Tuesday and has the Falcons going in a completely different direction than most Falcons fans are likely expecting.

"If (tight end) Kyle Pitts is there at No. 4, I don't know how you can turn him down," Baldinger told 92.9 The Game.

"I mean, the guy might be the best receiver in this draft. He might be the best match-up in this whole draft. Turn on any game and the guy is just smooth, fluid; he jumps to the moon to go get a football. He's going to run really well."

Pitts finished his career with the Florida Gators with 100 receptions for 1,492 yards and 18 touchdowns. He became Florida’s all-time leader for receiving yards by a tight end, while ranking second in career receptions at the position.

"If he's there at four, it'd be hard to look at that and go 'man, that guy would fit in well in our offense, in any offense.'"

Baldinger even brings up that new Falcons head coach Arthur Smith loves using tight ends in his offensive game plan.

"Arthur Smith likes tight ends. This guy is more than a tight end. He might be the second coming of Travis Kelce right now."
