When 49ers traded up, Kyle Pitts thought it might be for him

When 49ers traded up, Kyle Pitts thought it might be for him

Everyone knows that when the 49ers traded their next three first-round draft picks to move up to No. 3 overall, it was to draft a quarterback. Well, everyone except Kyle Pitts.

Pitts, the Florida tight end who is viewed by some as the top non-quarterback in the draft, heard the news that the 49ers had moved up to No. 3 and immediately thought it might be fore him.

“Is it a QB or is it me?” Pitts asked in a text to his position coach, according to ESPN.

Although pairing Pitts with George Kittle would make for a phenomenal couple of tight ends, the question was rather silly. Of course the 49ers were trading up for a quarterback. Pitts may well be the best tight end prospect ever to come out of college football, and he still wouldn’t be worth trading three first-round picks to draft.
