Matt Ryan likes what he sees from Kyle Pitts so far: 'He has great potential'
The Atlanta Falcons took Florida TE Kyle Pitts with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
He’ll enter his rookie year with plenty of expectations, especially since he joins a receiving corps that features Julio Jones (at least for now), Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst.
As far as first impressions go, Pitts is making a good one. Per AJC.com, QB Matt Ryan likes what he sees so far:
“I think for Kyle, the biggest thing is worrying about getting better,” Ryan said. “Learning the offense and trying to get a little better every day. He has great potential. Great upside, but he (must) focus on daily improvement and try to learn the offense as best he can.”
Ryan also encouraged Pitts to keep working hard and keep his humble attitude:
“The thing that I’ve been impressed with for him is just his humility and his ability to want to work in the first couple of weeks,” Ryan said. “I think that’s genuine. I would encourage him to stay that way because to me when you constantly trying to get better and improve, that’s the way you get to where you want to go. He’s certainly off to a good start.”
The Falcons have the pieces in place to have a talented offense in 2021. Can they put it all together and make a playoff run?
