The 2021 NFL Draft is quickly approaching, and with it comes huge decisions for the Philadelphia Eagles‘ front office. While the Birds are sitting pretty with the sixth selection, their first top-ten pick since selecting quarterback Carson Wentz in 2016, they are tasked with finding the perfect addition for a roster that leaves much to be desired.

The great news for the Philadelphia Eagles and the NFL alike is the depth of talent in this year’s draft could be historic. With the potential of adding game-changing talent to their team, the front office will have a large pool of talent to swim through. That may ultimately decide who they snatch up with their first-round selection.

The Philadelphia Eagles need to find the best player available at six.

By now, every Philadelphia Eagles fan has their ideas about what they think the Birds should do. Many are clamoring for a star wideout. Others want a difference-maker at cornerback. Both ideas make a ton of sense given the Eagles’ depth chart, but here’s something that we can agree on. With the sixth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Philly may need to just take the best player available, regardless of the position he plays.

Here’s someone that could change the Philadelphia Eagles’ fortunes.

Florida tight end Kyle Pitts has been overlooked up until now, but he’s someone that you want to pay attention to. The six-foot-six, 245-pound offensive weapon has the tools and skillset to be the next Randy Moss. Yes, you read that correctly. Pitts is a big-play waiting to happen, blessed with arguably the best hands in the draft, natural speed, and a dominant catch radius. He has everything it takes to dominate at the next level.

Birds fans need to forget about the fact that he plays tight end for a second and instead imagine the potential the Florida product could bring. Kyle Pitts isn’t your normal tight-end. He’s a giant headache for opposing defenses. He has the versatility and freakish athletic ability to completely take over a football game. Still, despite his position, Pitts can be split out wide and bully defenders. He also possesses the speed to outrun most of the other guys on the field.

If the Philadelphia Eagles’ front office truly goes with the best player available strategy, Pitts needs to be considered. With his size, speed, and ridiculous talent, he has the potential to be the best offensive weapon the Birds have had in a long time.
