Kyle Pitts, Tight End, Atlanta Falcons
For years, Matt Ryan or Julio Jones could claim this spot. But, the Falcons knew they were getting someone special when they selected Pitts fourth overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. His 1,026 receiving yards ranked third in the NFL among tight ends and his 66 receptions was good for eighth at the position. The rookie became the first rookie tight end to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in 60 years. Pitts is certainly someone to build around. Now, it’s about what kind of supporting cast he’ll have to work with down the road.
