Kyle Pitts was the 4th overall pick in the NFL draft and the highest drafted Tight End in NFL history. The dynamic playmaker shot up draft boards after posting 770 yards and 12 touchdowns in only 8 games. Pitts is an athletic monster – 6’6”, 245 pounds and runs a 4.44 40 yard dash. Pitts is officially listed as a tight end but he definitely is capable of playing wide receiver. No matter where he lines up, he’s going to fit right into Matt Ryan’s offense and make some noise early in the season.
Kyle Pitts is the only player from the 2021 draft to join the Jordan Family. It is incredibly rare to see a player who hasn’t played an NFL snap join Jordan Brand. Being a JB athlete, Pitts is going to have access to all sorts of incredible player-exclusive cleats and gloves. So far through rookie mini-camp, he has already brought out some Jordan Vapor Jet 6.0 gloves in a couple colorways. I can’t wait to see what Kyle and the Jordan design team come up with, especially being able to use the Falcons black and red (Bred) color scheme.
