 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  After rewriting the school and SEC record books in his final collegiate season, Mackey Award winner Kyle Pitts made history on the opening night of the 2021 NFL draft. With the Atlanta Falcons selecting him No. 4 overall Thursday, Pitts became the highest tight end taken in the common draft era and the first Gators TE to be a first-round pick. Jordan Reed, who retired in April, was the last UF player drafted at the position (2013) and Ben Troupe had been Florida's highest draftee (second round, No. 40) prior to Pitts. He and Riley Odoms (1972) are the only tight ends to go in the top five of the NFL's common draft era (since 1967). Here's what Pitts will bring to Atlanta, where he played his last college game and broke the UF record for career receiving yards by a tight end - 1,492 yards on 100 catches (second all-time). - Gainesville Sun
