Even if you consider Pitts strictly a WR, you can make a case for him being the number 1 guy taken.

He would be the most complete WR in this draft: big and strong, great hands, good speed (4.5 guy) good route-running and good blocking.

The only thing that can give you pause if you consider him a WR would be his “lack of production”.. but his young age also counterbalances some of that.

So, IMO, even as a WR, Pitts is battling it out to be the first guy taken off the board.

Lack of production? 😂

If you're arent blocking as a TE play another position. Kittle, Gronk and Kelce have set the bar VERY high. Showing they can be both, at a very high level.

Kelce is not like Gronk & Kittle who are primarily Inline blocking TE's.

FTR, Real good TE's s/b well rounded... Jay Novacek comes to mind

I played TE for 3 years at Akron U. I played my freshmen year as a WR before gaining my man weight. I came in as a sophomore at 240lbs. I was moved TE where I learned to do nothing but blocking as I was already a solid receiver. TEs block and we block...a lot.
Watch the Tampa vs Washington play-off game. Gronk owned Chase Young 1v1. Now that is a #3 pick TE

What a TE does depends on scheme and philosophy of the program. It sounds like Akron used the TE as an Extra Tackle.

Ideally IMO, you want 3 TE's w/ diverse skill sets. The phins are a decent example....

Gesicki is the receiving TE who can be lined up in multiple positions, Smythe is the Inline blocking TE, Shaheen is the jack of all trades i.e. Novacek (see post #36)

Yeah. It’s more about creating mismatches and Pitts may be the biggest mismatch in the whole draft.
I agree and think we should add another WR in the draft. Obviously, Waddle and perhaps Smith will be gone at #18. If we had to wait and draft a WR later, who would you target to complement our WR room if we took Pitts?

Well we are going to have board meltdown when the Fins trade down to #8 or 9 and Pitts is already gone.
They are not going to pass up a trade that will bring back 2 2nd round picks. Thats too much value not to accept.
At #8 Kiper has them taking Waddle which makes sense. I have also seen that Slater might be in play if the Fins think he is as good as Sewell which some teams do.

What gives you the idea they can only get back two second round picks for 8 or 9th? That’s not a kings ransom youd love to move back 5 or 6 spots!

If a team offers us 2 second rd picks and swap from 3 to 8, that’s crazy to pass up. That’s a unrealistic scenario In my opinion.
