Nice. Now everybody shut up about receivers lol. 

I like this pick.    Anyone else notice how fast the Colts turned their pick in? They knew exactly who they were drafting. 

Greetings Colt fans!  Just dropped by to tell you that the majority of USC fans (we love Pitt), are happy the Colts drafted Mike.  Seems like a great fit, so happy for him.   No one knows ho

Surprised they didn’t trade back, but I like the pick. 

 

With Higgins going 33, there were only 2 top tier WRs left in Mims and Pittman in my opinion, so they couldn't risk both of them being gone by 44 overall.

Hey Guys, 

 

If you remember I'm from France, 

Currently watching the draft on a cruddy stream as I'm confined in the countryside. It is almost 2am here! 

 

Quick question, I see all of you being thrilled about the pick, but I never heard about Pittman. 

We heard in the community of French football fans about Shenault or Mims (outside of the already picked ones). 

What make you feel that he is better than Shenault or Mims. 

And according to the fact that every mock draft I've seen Shenault or Mims were higher ranked prospect, wouldn't have he been available at 44? 

Thanks!

I like it.  We got the big WR we've been looking for.  He is productive, excellent hands, catches the ball in traffic. 

 

I was watching a lot of you tube highlights of possible draftees for us.  Besides what has already been said.  I seen him make plays on special teams.  Blocked a couple punts, made a good tackle causing a fumble, I think it was on kickoff coverage for USC.

 

There was report yesterday how the trend of picks after Cincy become Hall of Fame players.  Probably a coincidence but I did not want us to trade this pick aware because of the Karma with this pick. 

 

Now on to pick 44 for another quality pick.

I love Pittman. He was a late study for me. Initially I had him pegged as a 3d rounder but the more I watched him the more I liked him and he ended up as my 6th best receiver in the draft(late first value). I absolutely loved his tape. He has some of the best hands in the draft, for a big receiver he has some of the best feet in the draft too. Great catch radius, great contested catch receiver... but also has some technical refinement when it comes to the nuances of route running, stacking his defender, he looks like a very smart player too - finds open space in zones, when play is broken he gets back to his QB and presents his frame to the QB. He has some of the best feet in the draft too. Just watch his feet on tape... He had some of the best 3cone test at the combine. Unlike some other big frame receivers, Pittman actually seem to have some after the catch ability, he's very competitive fighting for extra yards and can make defenders miss. Althought he's not a burner, if left uninterrupted he has the speed to outrun defenders and take it to house.

If Campbell can stay healthy and develop Hilton, Campbell, Pittman, and Pascal could be deadly 

 

Campbell seems to be almost forgotten.  To me we drafted 2 WRs for next year.  With Rivers behind our online, this could easily be a top 5 offense.

big, strong, good hands, high character, was a team captain, can play special teams. checks all boxes, typical ballard pick. I like it!

Also he was top WR on Wonderlic, scored 29 which is extremely high. So he’s intelligent too.

TY and Pittman on the outside. Campbell in the slot. Doyle getting in on the action.
 

JT running wild.

 

Offense is going to be insane!

 

Yeah I'm pretty pumped, Ballard ended up getting a premier defensive player with this first pick involving the trade for Buckner.  Then managed to pick up two elite offensive talents in the 2nd, that in a lesser draft probably would've went in the first round.

Pittman is an excellent pick.  Brings us the big catch radius that we haven't had since Reggie.  Pittman can also win the jump balls, but he's not a plodding physical receiver, he has speed.  So he can get down field 30 yards and win the catches in chunk plays, not just plodding possession plays.  

 

Fills a huge hole that we've had for 5 years, IMO.  Great pick.

His Wonderlic score is very nice.  He’s older, & mature.  Seems like the kind of player Ballard likes.  I think Rivers will look to him early.  He’s no project.  He’s coming in pro ready.  Also, can see Pittman as a guy that TY can pass the WR leadership reigns to like Reggie did with him.

Yep. He will be ready to go day 1.  We will need a speedy guy to replace ty. Maybe that ends up being Paris.

    • Agree on the surface, but   Between he and Campbell. we really dont know what we have yet.   Are they EXPECTING both to be ALL Pro?  I dont think so   Would I like a 4th round pick to be used on a WR like Terry..... Yes!   4.4 40 at 6-4       Today, we can go play football with our current WRs group and we can add a WR later in the draft   With the holes at LT and DL (And possibly a move TE)   I truly hope that we address the gaping holes in the lines before we add other positions               
    • Lol.  I already acknowledged your point about the team having complete medical info in my response to Shive’s post above, and admitted I didn’t know about UCLA’s concussion policy.       But, if saying something that “isn’t even true” proves the other person’s point, then I must point out that apparently he transferred to Miami because they have a better music program.  It seems he did decide to medically retire and pursue his other passion - music.  But then changed his mind.  
    • I'd be shocked if he didn't trade down.  He loves draft capitol and has shown that he stands by his word of building through the draft.  He wants more picks and we can trade out of 21 to the later part of round 1 and pick up 1-2 more picks.  That's what I see Ballard doing.
    • Agreed.   There are various avenues to addressing those positions, and the draft is obviously one of them.  But it’s probably the biggest one, considering that Ballard is clearly socking away money for upcoming high value free agencies.   I won’t make any predictions about who our 1st 2 picks will be.  But I’ll be really surprised if at least one of them isn’t either a DE or an LT.
