 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney on Thursday night became the first pair of Florida offensive skill players drafted in the opening round since Ike Hilliard and Reidel Anthony in 1997. Pitts played his final collegiate game in Atlanta, and will now begin his NFL career there. The Falcons selected the Mackey Award winner fourth overall, making him the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history. Toney became the first UF receiver since Percy Harvin to go in the first round, heading to the New York Giants with the 20th pick. "I've been waiting for that call my whole life," Pitts told ESPN. "When I saw my phone ring, I felt my heart drop. It's just step one in the right direction." Prior to Pitts, Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Ditka (1961) and former Denver Broncos All-Pro Riley Odoms (1972) were the only tight ends taken in the top five. Pitts is the first Gators TE to be a first-round pick and the program's highest-drafted player at the position since Ben Troupe, a second-round selection (40th overall) in 2004. - Gainesville Sun
