The Saints don’t want to see the Falcons draft Kyle Pitts.
Obviously, the Falcons are destined to get a good playing in this draft because they finished as the fourth-worst team in the NFL in 2020 awarding them the No. 4 pick. With star Matt Ryan on the team, the Falcons would be wise to avoid a quarterback despite being linked to several.
There are a couple of players that could be on the board at No. 4 that the Saints don’t want to see come to the NFC South including DeVonta Smith, Jamarr Chase, and Jaylen Waddle. However, the biggest threat to the black and gold is Kyle Pitts, a monster tight end from Florida.
In three seasons at the University of Florida, Pitts pulled in 100 receptions, 1,492 yards, and 18 touchdowns — that includes only playing three games his freshman season with three receptions for 73 yards. In 2020, Pitts reeled in 12 touchdowns.
Pitts is going to be a game-changer wherever he ends up, the Saints just don’t want to have to see him twice per year. He has the makings of being the next Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, or, for all of us Saints fans, Jimmy Graham.
