Michael Pittman has excellent size and a reliable pass catcher. His top-end speed is average, but it is also deceptive. Pittman will pick up yards after initial contact. He is a tough runner but doesn’t have a second gear. However, Pittman has enough to threaten vertically and is capable of bringing down over-the-shoulder throws. He does lack a trump card but plays to his size with great size and length. Pittman makes a great compliment to T.Y. Hilton. He will also have to fight for volume with Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal.
Dynasty Spin: Pittman gives the Colts a massive weapon near the goal line and an excellent target downfield for Philip Rivers. However, Rivers is at the end of his career, and there is no firm starter waiting in the wings. Indianapolis drafted Jacob Eason, but he isn't confirmed to take over once Rivers leaves. Pittman can be the number one receiver once Hilton departs, but until then, he will be their number two. Pittman is going in the late first-round or early second-round in rookie drafts and 8th round in start-ups.
