NFL insider says 1 team owner is 'infatuated' with Kyle Pitts
The Dallas Cowboys hold the No. 10 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Normally, that wouldn’t be a bad place to be. But, if you want to draft Florida TE Kyle Pitts, it might be too late.
So, could the Cowboys trade up higher in Round 1 to go get the talented Florida receiver?
According to ESPN insider Chris Mortensen, Dallas owner Jerry Jones is very high on Pitts heading into the 2021 draft (via 247Sports):
“We’re hearing this thing about Jerry Jones, the owner of the Cowboys and the GM, being infatuated with Kyle Pitts,” Mortensen said this week on ESPN’s draft special. “So I figure he’s gonna have to trade up to get Kyle Pitts. I think he’ll offer Emmitt Smith and Larry Allen, maybe throw in Michael Irvin. He doesn’t need Tony Romo but he has Dak Prescott, he spent $40 million a year on Dak Prescott so why not go get Kyle Pitts, or if he actually falls to 10 you couldn’t rule him out.”
If Pitts falls to No. 10, the Cowboys would likely pounce at the opportunity to draft him. But, when has Jerry Jones ever been patient in the draft?
If he wants Pitts, we could see a trade over the next couple of weeks. Or, potentially, the Cowboys could make a move on draft night.
