If there is one prospect that has seemingly continued to stay at the top of the Miami Dolphins draft board it’s University of Florida tight end Kyle Pitts.
Pitts offers the size and speed to take an NFL offense to the next level and could serve as a valuable safety valve for second-year passer Tua Tagovailoa.
Unfortunately, it’s looking like the Dolphins will miss out on selecting Pitts at the No. 6 spot, as the Atlanta Falcons are reportedly expected to select him with the No. 4 overall pick.

If this scenario plays out, it would be especially difficult to swallow for the Dolphins because they originally held the No. 3 overall pick but elected to trade down.
While the Dolphins did gain an additional future first-round pick by moving back from the No. 3 to No. 6 pick, Pitts has been called a generational talent by many experts.
Though the Dolphins surely hope the decision to trade back won’t bite them, it’s starting to look quite likely that it will.
