    Smith for me out of college... Kid is pure route runner. NFL is completely different animal though... will be interesting to see what happens for both

    Pitts, mostly because of the scarcity of depth at the position. Where they land may play into it also.

    As someone picking at 1.05 and expecting Harris, Etienne, Williams, and Chase to be gone, I might be choosing between these very players. I'm leaning Pitts, for the reason WTCM listed.

    I need to hear from the GM/coach of the team that drafts him, want to make sure Pitts will be utilized more like a WR than a TE. I want to make sure he's viewed in the offense as an imitation of Kelce, Kittle, Waller. I'm as high on Pitts as anyone, but I remember the Hockenson/O.J. Howard hype too. I have no desire to draft a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 at 1.05. Whoever picks him needs to view as a primary target in the offense. Assuming that is the case, I'd prefer him to Smith.

    I haven't exactly been good at picking rookie WRs lately, but I'm just not feeling it with Smith. I already own Diontae Johnson, I'd prefer to not stock up on slim WRs.
    10-team, non-PPR, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 FLEX, 1 TE.
    2021 keepers: QB Patrick Mahomes, RB Christian McCaffrey, RB Dalvin Cook, WR AJ Brown, WR Courtland Sutton, WR Diontae Johnson, WR Laviska Shenault, WR Henry Ruggs

    Pitts for me. Elite TE's are hard to get and can give you advantage.

    Pitts because of his incredible ability and elite upside in a scarce position. I like both though

    I hope the Falcons take Pitts. But, I'll take Pitts over Smith.

    I think Pitts as well, his talent combined with his position does it for me also....

    Depending on landing spot, I might take him 1.01.

    I just think he's the one athlete in this draft that can create the most mismatches.

    They said this about Vernon Davis once. Pitts is being compared to him ironically

    yeah but he was a headcase when he started in the league. singletary couldn't do it with him. and by it i mean trust him to be on the field.

    if a player with this type of skill wants to be great then they surely will. that's why brees is going to the hof and a litany of high 1st round qbs bust their way out of the league.

    devonta smith landed in a horrible spot with hurts as his qb.

    pitts landed in the best possible spot for him.

    the choice is easy now.

    Jones shouldn't be their for much long. If Ryan moves on, a weaker armed QB will only rely more on Pitts. With no decent run game, Pitts will be pitting up monster numbers by next year.
