Projecting the Atlanta Falcons roster, The Athletic's Tori McElhaney writes: Pitts is going to be a focal point of this offense. The Falcons didn’t pick him at No. 4 for him not to be, especially with [Julio] Jones gone. (The Athletic)
McElhaney adds: In minicamp, Pitts was everywhere, and [Hayden] Hurst was never without an important role to play. This group will be paramount to the Falcons’ offensive success in this new scheme. McElhaney points out that new play-caller Arthur Smith loves his TEs as well.
