Popular ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen gave an update regarding the situation surrounding Dallas Cowboys and TE Kyle Pitts. He claimed that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is already ‘infatuated’ by the idea of drafting Pitts in the first round of the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.

“We’re hearing this thing about Jerry Jones, the owner of the Cowboys — and the GM — being infatuated with Kyle Pitts. He’s going to have to trade up to get Kyle Pitts. He spent $40 million a year on Dak Prescott, so why not go get Kyle Pitts?” Mortensen said as per PFT.

On 43 receptions, Pitts had 770 receiving yards and 12 receiving TDs for the Florida Gators Football team. He has 1400+ receiving yards and 15+ receiving TDs during his 3-year NCAA career. He is definitely an expected Top-10 selection at the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.

Miami Dolphins are also reportedly eyeing Pitts. They’ve moved up the draft order taking over Philadelphia Eagles’ 6th overall pick. But should he remain available at number 10, make no mistake, he’s boarding the first flight to Texas this summer.

Coach McCarthy is eager to mount a deep NFL post-season run in 2021. He will need his existing stars such as Prescott, Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Ezekiel Elliott, to step up the ante when the season starts in September. But is Pitts the missing piece of the puzzle?
