Kyle Pitts was supposed to be the top option on the Miami Dolphins draft board but Atlanta took him as the earliest TE in NFL history.
When the Miami Dolphins and the Atlanta Falcons face-off, the Dolphins are going to get a look at what it might have been like had they stayed at number three overall and selected Kyle Pitts.
This will be an interesting game for fans to scrutinize the decision of Chris Grier to move from three to 12 and then back to six. Miami fans should be spending Sunday night looking at the stat lines to see if Kyle Pitts’ number match with Jayle Waddle.
Let’s be honest, this comparison won’t be fair but if you spend any time on social media you and I both know how the reactions will be, especially from the “Kyle Pitts no matter what” crowd.
The other side to this is what Miami will get out of third-round selection Hunter Long. The big TE posted as good or better numbers last year than Pitts but didn’t receive the same attention nationally. The Dolphins were pretty thrilled to get Long in round three and hopefully his transition to the NFL will be smooth and his contributions will come early. Tight end is one of the hardest positions to adjust to in the NFL.
Miami and Atlanta will play in week 7 at Hard Rock Stadium!
