Offseason workouts are in full swing and a number of the NFL's top tight ends have gathered for the first-ever Tight End University. The camp -- which was put together by Travis Kelce, George Kittle and Greg Olsen -- features veterans and the next crop of possible All-Pro talents. One of those potential future stars in attendance is top Atlanta Falcons draft pick Kyle Pitts.

A recent video from the camp shows Pitts getting a hands-on lesson from Kelce.

It's exciting to see Atlanta's top pick already being looked after by a superstar talent like Kelce. There's no telling how much of an impact the camp will have on the rookie. Whether it's in drills or conversations off of the practice field, Pitts should come away with a ton of lessons that will shape his rookie year.

Pitts immediately slots in as one of Matt Ryan's top targets with Julio Jones now gone. There's a ton of optimism about Pitts' potential at the next level given he stands 6-foot-6 and grabbed 77 receptions for 1,419 yards and 17 TDs across his last two college seasons at Florida.

It wouldn't be much of a surprise if the tight end is in the Rookie of the Year conversation this season after working with some of the game's TE greats at this camp. Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds give Pitts +1100 odds to take home the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
