3 reasons why the Cowboys shouldn’t trade up for Kyle Pitts
The Dallas Cowboys and Jerry Jones enter this upcoming NFL Draft with practically no chance at messing it up, well, they have very little chance to do so. They just can’t with all the opportunities they’ll have to get it right.
Considering the number of picks they have at their disposal and the team’s number of needs, it’s hard to imagine them doing anything short of coming away from this draft as winners. Well, that is, unless they do that thing that Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys can and have been known to do.
Known to go for the sexy or splash move, Jerry Jones has seen himself burnt by a few of those decisions. According to some and even if you look here at The Landry Hat, he may be pining for another of those moves.
In his piece, “Dallas Cowboys trade up for a unicorn in new mock draft”, here is what the TLH site expert, Steven Mullenax, had to say on that very topic. For Dallas and Jones, this season, it appears the guy is Kyle Pitts, the tight end from Florida.
"Many view the Cowboys’ current tight end depth chart as fully occupied with Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, Sean McKeon, and the newly-signed Jeremy Sprinkle. Yet, Jarwin is coming off an ACL injury that robbed him of 15 games in 2020. And both Schultz and Sprinkle are set to become free agents next offseason. If Pitts lives up to his enormous potential, he’ll be a fixture in Dallas for the next decade. Imagine him becoming the Jason Witten to Dak Prescott’s Tony Romo. If the Cowboys see Pitts fall past the Altlanta Falcons at fourth overall, the Cincinnati Bengals at five, and the Miami Dolphins at six, the temptation to move up to snatch him may be too great."
What is there to make of it all though?
