There are simply over two weeks left till the 2021 NFL Draft and issues are beginning to really feel only a teeny bit predictable for the Dallas Cowboys. It’s broadly believed by most Cowboys followers that when the group is on the clock at quantity 10 total, they may choose Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain II. That would definitely be a effective selection.
One hypothetical does linger within the air although, and it’s definitely a enjoyable one to contemplate. The Dallas Cowboys might see a world the place Florida tight finish Kyle Pitts falls previous the highest 9 picks all the best way to them, and if he does, then the group could be confronted with fairly the choice.
Taking Pitts would really be abiding by a “greatest participant obtainable” technique, however there’s an essence of want that all the time needs to be factored in. Regardless of the case, we all know that it’s on the very least a risk, proper?
Kyle Pitts has spoken with Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys
It has now been two years for the reason that final time that the run-up to the NFL Draft was what we’ve recognized it to be for many of our lives. In each 2021 and 2020, issues have operated largely in a digital sense, and because of this monitoring the visits that every group has is hardly as straightforward because it was.
Florida tight finish Kyle Pitts is a prime participant within the class and due to this fact it is sensible for every group to do their due diligence on him. Clearly the Cowboys are choosing close to the highest and so it additionally is sensible for them to do their correct homework.
In an look on The Wealthy Eisen Present on Monday, Pitts famous that he has spoken to the Dallas Cowboys and particularly to Jerry Jones himself.
Wealthy: Has one group that’s spoken to you will have a star on the aspect of their helmet, Kyle Pitts?
Kyle: Sure I’ve spoken to the Cowboys.
Wealthy: Okay you will have. Have you ever spoken to Jerry Jones himself?
Kyle: Sure sir.
Wealthy: Okay. What are you able to share about that dialog? As a result of apparently he was, quote unquote, I don’t know when you heard the report, infatuated with and by you, Kyle. Have you ever heard that report?
Kyle: I really, I’d moderately not learn the press clippings… till the day comes I received’t fear about that. Somebody did name me and inform me about that. It’s sort of, it’s an honor for him to say that. Dallas is a good group… if I might have the chance to play for it will be a terrific factor.
Wealthy: You grew up in Philadelphia, proper Kyle?
Kyle: That’s sort of, I might say, the oxymoron, me rising up an Eagles fan after which having the chance to play for the Cowboys. So that may be a tough time getting a few of my household jerseys as a result of they’re die-hard Eagles followers. That might be one thing humorous.
Eisen additionally requested Pitts about his household given that he’s from Philadelphia. Clearly because of this Pitts’ household is stuffed with Philadelphia Eagles followers and the tight finish did joke about how it will be humorous if he wound up enjoying for Philly’s greatest rival within the Dallas Cowboys.
It really could be a coming of full circle if the Cowboys took a star tight finish that was a son of Philadelphia. You’ll recall that three years in the past, through the 2018 NFL Draft that was held at AT&T Stadium of all locations, that the Philadelphia Eagles traded as much as bounce the Cowboys and draft South Dakota State tight finish Dallas Goedert. Dallas’ title made for lots of jokes and despite the fact that the Cowboys weren’t going to draft Goedert, the truth that this occurred simply days after Jason Witten retired (for the primary time) added to the hysteria.
Once more, it isn’t stunning that the Cowboys are having conversations with prime draft prospects. It’s actually their job to do that. ESPN reported not too long ago that Jerry Jones was “infatuated” with Kyle Pitts although so permit your thoughts to run as far-off as you need it to.
