I'm biased as a Gator alum, but man Kyle Pitts is going to be exciting at the next level with how TEs are used in the modern NFL. 6'6" 240 with great speed and hands. Absolute match up nightmare.

Florida has been void of elite offensive talent for years now so its exciting to watch him and the other Kyle pick apart defenses.

My Dad is a Gator alumni, he had classes with Steve Spurrier actually

I feel like he'd be wasted there on a run first team that already has a top five TE.

I'd be more worried about him going to the Steelers.
I'm actually most worried he ends up with Burrow, provided they get a real coach at some point.

So what I take from this is hey, we have 6 picks in the first 4 rounds...awesome
It could have been depodesta/sashi or someone else but I think they found your best shot at getting NFL talent is in the top 100 picks. I love that this team has been putting themselves in position to do this year after year.

So a QB prospect with only one year of college ball is going to prepare for the NFL by not running an offense, and not throwing in-game passes?

I'd pass on a QB who isn't trying to get better.

In his defense, he did stick around for their one-off game against Central Arkansas this past weekend instead of jumping right into the draft prep process. Clearly, there are talent evaluators in the league who love this guy and seemingly willing to draft him high in 2021. With NDSU deferring to a spring season, Lance would have been unable to participate in a full season while simultaneously preparing for the draft. I personally can't argue with his decision to strike while the iron is hot.

His team doesn’t have anymore games until right before the draft (if that even happens).

For all intents and purposes, the one game they did play was as a favor to their soon-to-be NFL QB.

Thanks -- that will teach me to read the whole article and not just the stupid tweet.

Still, he's a QB coming from a second tier school, and as the first-ever redshirt sophomore QB. If he thinks he's ready for the NFL at this point...I'm skeptical. There are a lot of QB's who could have been drafted first round but who stayed in college just because they wanted to work on their games.

He's going to have a hell of a leap to make.

Wrong year and given our other needs it would have been irresponsible to draft a WR in the 2nd round but damn, Chase Claypool is showing out big time and showing once again that no one comes close to evaluating WRs like Kevin Colbert
