Kyle Pitts opens 40 days a day pro, earning Calvin Johnson’s comparisons
Florida Gator Kyle Pitts put on a show on pro day.
The nearly 6-6, 245-pound tight end is arguably the most fascinating offensive weapon in the 2021 NFL Draft, and any team that wants to add an explosive, dynamic player will be in the Gator.
While Pitts had a great season in Florida in the first round in the first round, the top 10 positions in this year’s draft can be consolidated in Florida’s professional practice. Pitts posted an unofficial 4.44-foot 40-yard line, which is a ridiculous size.
To make Pitts ’run even more spectacular: he was getting out of his line, which could have been faster if he had continued straight.
Pitts ’measurements also made some comparisons with the last coach of the Calvin Johnson Hall of Fame Pro Football Hall.
It’s probably not fair to say that Kyle Pitts is the tight end of Calvin Johnson. But it’s close, and I find it hard to make a better comparison.
