2021 though promises to be different. With Dak Prescott locked in for the long-term, the Dallas Cowboys are looking to return to their winning ways. 

And that ambition of theirs could be fulfilled by drafting star tight-end Kyle Pitts of the Florida Gators. Pitts, who is considered one of the best talents in the draft, is apparently high on the wish list of the Cowboys.

The franchise, which has the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, is apparently looking to draft the tight-end. While it’s unlikely Pitts will fall down to 10th in the draft ladder, how would a Cowboys offense look with Kyle Pitts?

The Cowboys need reinforcement in the defensive front. They’ve needed it ever since the beginning of the 202o season. But if Pitts is available when the Cowboys are on board, they’ll likely go for the tight-end.

The Cowboy have struggled particularly when it comes to the secondary. But the franchise is too impressed with Pitts to let him go.

So with Pitts in the mix, how does the Cowboys offense look. Well, on paper, it’s one of the best offensive units in the league. 

Alongside star running back Ezekiel Elliot, the Cowboys will have players like wide receivers Ceedee Lamb, Amari Copper, and Michael Gallup in their ranks.

Add tight end, Kyle Pitts, to it and the Cowboys will be loaded in offense. But does Pitts have what it takes to elevate the Cowboys offense to another level?

Well, we definitely believe so. The tight-end registered 12 touchdowns in his final season with the Florida Gators. Regarded as one of the best talents, if not the best, in the upcoming draft, Pitts is a force to reckon with. And it’s been some time that the Cowboys had a star tight-end among their ranks. 

With Pitts onboard, Prescott will have one more star target to aim at. And this time, someone down the field. Unlike when he aims for his wide receivers.
