Chicago Bears Draft: Tight End

There is a major fall-off in talent in this class at tight end. Truly, there is Kyle Pitts and then a small blur of solid tight ends, then a bunch of question marks following that. This class is similar to last season (if you take away Pitts). There could be a few tight ends that go on Day 2, but most of them will go on the third day of the draft.

  1. Kyle Pitts, Florida — 7.0
  2. Pat Freiermuth, Penn State — 6.3
  3. Brevin Jordan, Miami — 6.1
  4. Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame — 5.9
  5. Tre’ McKitty, Georgia — 5.6
  6. Hunter Long, Boston College — 5.5
  7. Quintin Morris, Bowling Green — 5.2
  8. Nick Eubanks, Michigan — 5.1
  9. Kenny Yeboah, Ole Miss — 4.8
  10. Matt Bushman, BYU — 4.8

Player to Highlight: Kyle Pitts, Florida

As stated, Kyle Pitts is head and shoulders above the other tight end competition. He was the only offensive talent in this class for me to give the tag “The Perfect Prospect” and maybe the only player in the class (haven’t fully broken down defense yet). Pitts has everything. It would be tedious to name everything because he is literally good at everything he does.

Pitts warrants a top-five pick in my eyes. He’s not a tight end. Pitts will be what Darren Waller is to Las Vegas, but he has a higher ceiling. He is a wide receiver that can also line up and block if need to. He may fall due to his positional tag though. Whoever gets him is getting a steal outside of the top three picks. If he falls outside of the top ten, I would be shocked.
