KYLE PITTS is the absolute cream of the crop this year at tight and will likely be the next star like George Kittle or Kelce, but the Saints have almost zero shot at him barring a trade up because he will likely go top ten.

The only free agents to speak of are Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith but they aren't the type of game changers the saints need.

Adam Trautman is a great in-line blocker and route runner but lacks pure speed.





So far I've noticed 3 tight ends other than Pitts who could fill the #1 and #2 TE void should Cook depart.

Pat Freiermuth of Penn State--- reminiscent of Jeremy Shockey.



Hunter Long of Boston College--was second in receiving behind Pitts



Tre Mckitty of Georgia----Similar to Benjamin Watson and hails from the same Alma Mater.




The saints are in much better shape at wr and runner than TE, so do they take two in the first 3 rounds if they get to keep all of their picks?

I think we should draft 4 of them, then trade the slacker.

I think that drafting two of the top 4 along with already having Trautman and Hill at #3 and 4 could possibly turn a position of weakness into a strength.

Kyle Pitts to Atlanta would be as bad as when they had Tony Gonzales.

Freiremuth has definitely looked like the second best TE to me. Pitts should go top 10. He is a matchup nightmare and could be the rare rookie TE that produces immediately with his red zone prowess.

Up until last week I thought Wydermyer from A&M was draft eligible and was 100% in on him. That guy should be a top 12 pick next season.

They are in position to draft both Freiermuth AND Long.

Long is almost as good as Freiermuth and Mckitty has extra-soft 11 inch hands like Mike Thomas.

Bowling Green TE Quinten Morris also had a great game at the Senior Bowl with 3 catches for 57 yards and a 17 ypc average.

Brevin Jordan from Miami looks like a playmaker to me. I think he’d be electric in this offense.

Isn’t Gerald Everett a FA? Think he would fit well as the athletic, seem busting compliment to Trautman.

Pitts would be a monster, but we'd have to trade up to get him. SP does go after who he wants, but there's no telling who he's really high on to go after in this draft. We currently don't have a mismatch on this roster as any player can be schemed out. Maybe SP makes a splash and adds a mismatch like Pitts.

Bring back Arnold and sign Big Bob Tonyan away from Green Bay. Big Bob has developed into an all around TE, Trautman is developing into an all around TE and Arnold is a move TE and still developing, but he has another year under his belt and played well in AZ.

Tonyan trained with Kittle this offseason and it was obvious that it made a difference. We need to send Trautman and whoever else we have at TE to train with Kittle.
