Cowboys 2021 draft: Why Dallas cannot afford to draft Kyle Pitts

It seems that not a day goes by without someone on Cowboys Twitter explaining why they think Dallas should go after Florida tight end Kyle Pitts in the draft. And it’s not just the fans who feel this way, it was reported earlier in the week that Jerry Jones is “infatuated” with Pitts as well.

And I get it. Pitts is an easy prospect to get excited about. He played tight end at Florida but was basically a monstrous wide receiver, frequently wrecking SEC defenses on a weekly basis. His measurables compare best to that of Calvin Johnson, unlike any tight end we’ve seen, and Florida head coach Dan Mullen accurately described him as a unicorn.
