3. Falcons draft Kyle Pitts (4th overall, 2021)

This is a tough one. Kyle Pitts is a great player who has had a couple of down years. He has all the talent in the world to get back on track in 2024.

But, as of right now, he has not produced like a fourth-overall pick. If he does not turn things around soon, then this will certainly go down as a bad pick.

The fact that an all-world player like Micah Parsons was still on the board hurts, along with Ja'Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle, Pat Surtain, DeVonta Smith, you get the idea...

All in all, this was a bad pick with an asterisk next to it. I doubt we have seen the best of Pitts yet so he could quickly get deleted off this list.
