The Philadelphia Eagles can always find some help in the SEC.

The SEC doesn’t produce a ton of stars at the quarterback position, but every time you’re watching the Southeastern Conference on television, it’s obvious that, from top to bottom, you’re watching the best talent that college football has to offer, and you’re doing so weekly.

It’s going to be interesting to see how Kyle Pitts performs versus the NCAA’s most talented defensive prospects. He’ll see a lot of those guys on Sundays come next Summer and Fall.

After appearing in only three games as a freshman in 2018, this six-foot-six, 240-pound standout racked up 649 yards on 54 receptions in 13 games during the 2019 season as a sophomore. Now, as one of the nation’s best tight-end prospects coming into the current campaign, his junior season figures to be his last ride as a member of the Florida Gators.

He’s on pace to shatter the numbers that he put up in 2019. Having Kyle Trask as his quarterback, one of those rare gems playing the position who call the SEC home, Pitts is going to some great things. Philly had better take notice.
