Kyle Pitts had an outstanding workout at Florida’s Pro Day

A couple of the top receiving prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft got a chance to show off for NFL scouts on Wednesday and both of them impressed.

Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase may have solidified his spot as the top player at that position with a 4.38 40-yard dash, an 11-foot broad jump, and a 41-inch vertical leap while working out at LSU. Kyle Pitts has little competition at the tight end rankings and his workout at Florida’s Pro Day won’t change that.

The 6’5″, 245-pound Pitts was timed at 4.44 in the 40-yard dash, a broad jump of 10’9″ and a 33.5-inch vertical leap. His wingspan was also measured at over 83 inches, which is longer than any other wide receiver or tight end who was measured at the Combine in the last 20 years.

Pitts will certainly be the first tight end taken in April. His size, speed, and ability to create mismatches for defenses makes him a strong contender to be the first non-quarterback taken as well.

  1. If he is still there at 10 then he will be a Cowboy 🤠 figure Gallup is on his last year. But he will be gone I’m sure. Philly UGE mistake trading back!

  2. The Eagles were in a position to draft him before Howie Roseman struck once again….(sigh)

  3. Good lord those numbers are scary and as a Gators fan watching him play, he looks like a guaranteed elite pro bowl level player if I ever saw one. I doubt the Jags can move up with the capital they have to make a trade to get him, but one can dream.

    Unfortunately he probably won’t be there, at the latest I think he goes 6 to Miami.

  5. Miami is drooling over Pitts. All the talk has been WR but I think fits what they need.

    Good luck stopping that offense in the red zone with Parker, Pitts, Gesicki and Preston Williams.

    Fuller, Grant and Wilson will be stretching the big players.

    Oh ya, Miami still has picks 18, 36 and 50 to add to this.

    Good luck NFL.

  6. Is he Megatron or is he just another TE? He better be Megatron 2.0 to go in the top 10.

  7. Pitts has never been covered on a route. He has some of the softest hands I’ve ever seen for a TE. His catch radius is roughly equivalent to the Colosseum. He’s 6’6”, 250 and just ran a 4.4. He’s going in the top ten.

  8. What a beast. So glad the Eagles traded down. No one on the Cowboys could have even come close to covering him.

  9. “Good luck stopping that offense in the red zone with Parker, Pitts, Gesicki and Preston Williams.”

    And good luck to you w Tua as the one throwing it to them.

  10. “Good luck stopping that offense in the red zone with Parker, Pitts, Gesicki and Preston Williams.”

    This is what makes the offseason fun because every fan can imagine some unbeatable advantage their team is going to have. Almost never works out but fun to look back on after the fact.
