Observing Sunday's training camp practice for the Falcons, Kevin Knight of The Falcoholic noted that: Kyle Pitts has lined up out wide, in the slot, and in-line thus far in practice. In motion a lot as well. (Kevin Knight on Twitter)
It is becoming more evident that Atlanta intends for Pitts to reach target monster status, as he'll have big shoes to fill with Julio Jones out of the picture. In addition, the Falcons don't have much talent in the backfield and aren't very deep defensively, setting up the team to be one of the more pass-heavy offenses in the league. Typically barely ranked outside of the top 5 tight ends in redraft leagues, Pitts could offer tremendous value in his rookie season.
