We all know that Jerry Jones loves flashy playmakers, and the Dallas Cowboys owner could reportedly be eyeing one of the top offensive talents in this year’s NFL Draft class.
According to ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen, Jones is “infatuated” with Florida Gators tight end Kyle Pitts, who many consider a generational talent.
Jones would certainly consider Pitts if he fell to the Cowboys at No. 10 overall — which seems unlikely — or we could see Jones make an aggressive move to trade up.
“We’re hearing this thing about Jerry Jones, the owner of the Cowboys and the GM, being infatuated with Kyle Pitts,” Mortensen said on ESPN’s draft special, via 247 Sports.
“So I figure he’s gonna have to trade up to get Kyle Pitts. He spent $40 million a year on Dak Prescott so why not go get Kyle Pitts, or if he actually falls to 10 you couldn’t rule him out.”
The Atlanta Falcons have reportedly had conversations to trade the No. 4 pick, so that could always be an option.
If the Cowboys surround Dak Prescott with Pitts, their current receiving corps, and Ezekiel Elliott, he would be set up for plenty of success.
But will that all happen? We’ll have to wait to find out.
The 2021 NFL Draft will be held across three days from April 29 to May 1. This year’s draft will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, incorporating FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, and the Great Lakes Science Center.
