Kyle Pitts is a good looking prospect
The New York Giants have a decision to make this offseason when it comes to their current starting tight end in Evan Engram. If they’re not going to keep him they need to release him this offseason before his salary for the 2021 NFL season becomes guaranteed.
Now if the Giants do release Engram they may end up looking to use the 11th overall pick on Florida tight end Kyle Pitts. One thing that he’s shown to do well is catch the ball in traffic. He has the most contested catches in college football since 2014, according to PFF College.
When it comes to Engram, he needs to learn to just catch the ball and stop letting it hit off his hands and into the hands of opposing defenders. I honestly don’t think the Giants will release him, but rather let him play out the final year of his rookie contract. It doesn’t mean though that they wouldn’t be open to taking someone like Pitts high in the draft.
Pitts recorded 43 receptions for 770 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Gators in 2020 as he helped them reach the SEC Championship game.
Pitts could definitely help the Giants, but I would much rather see them use their first round pick on someone like Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle.
