The Miami Dolphins get my No. 1 player at Pick 3.
ALL ABOARD! I am the conductor of the Kyle Pitts train, and the next stop is Miami! I have been all over Pitts’ dominance and what he will bring to the NFL, and the Dolphins.
Pitts is my No. 1 player in the 2021 NFL Draft, and I truly believe there has never been a tight end prospect like him to enter the NFL. He is more than special, and a word that has been flying around that I like is a unicorn. That is how unique Pitts is and how amazing he is going to be in the NFL.
Many people have a hard time understanding why adding Pitts to the Dolphins would make sense since they already have tight end Mike Gesicki. It makes sense for some causal fans to think having two tight ends would not make sense, but Miami runs the 5th most 12-personnel in the NFL (1 running back, 2 tight ends). Having Pitts and Gesicki on the field at the same time would take the Dolphins’ offense to the next level.
It would allow them to make the defense have to match up in a way that would be near impossible to defend. In 12 personnel, you can run the ball down someone’s throat, but when you have two tight ends like Pitts and Gesicki, you can also pass without a problem.
It is also worth noting that Gesicki is due for a new contract after this season, and after seeing what some of the tight ends were paid in free agency during a COVD cap year, Miami may also want to get a better and cheaper option at their No. 1 tight end spot.
