I just want to be top 10 in passing and rushing (top 5 total O), and top 10 vs the run, and top 15 vs the pass (top 10 total D). If we can do all that, I like our chances. Well rounded to me is the key.
IMO, our pass D needs to improve a bunch if we want to improve our TOP. Our soft zone bend don't break, bent way to much last year. Can't continue to play that far off the LOS>
We signed Funch, he just got hurt..... He was expected to be our starting go-to X. Pascal became the defacto X when Funch went down.
6-2 is not really a prototypical X. It's tweener size. And at his speed and vert, he really doesn't have the ability to "play bigger" than his height. Sure there are some successful Xs at his height, but typically they have other attributes (speed, arm length, radius, etc) or a combination of attributes. I think it was pretty telling too that they drafted a second guy that fit the same profile (Patmon).
Just to compare them.
HT 6-4 6-2
WT 220 219
40 4.52 4.55
Vert 36.5 36.0
20YS 4.14 4.29
3Cone 6.96 7.11
So bigger and faster. And it's truly not all about the measurements, but they do absolutely favor Pittman. His production and film show it to.
And like I said, I really like Pascal, I just don't think he should be our starting outside X. I do like his potential as a big slot though, and bet he gets a decent amount of snaps from there.
