Our podcast series previewing the Falcons 2021 roster continues with a look at one of the more intriguing position groups on the roster: tight end. Will McFadden joins me to talk about the incredibly promising Kyle Pitts, the now overlooked Hayden Hurst and the rest of the group. Can this be a position of strength this year?

Topics discussed includes:

  • Why we’re all hyped for Kyle Pitts and why we may need to pump the brakes just a little bit for the number 4 pick in the draft
  • The potential for Hayden Hurst and why he could be a critical factor for the passing game this season
  • The trade for Lee Smith and why a player like this is incredibly important for a new coach like Arthur Smith
  • Why special teams may be the deciding factor for the 4th tight end position
  • So much more
