DAVID PITTMAN, CB, NORTHWESTERN STATE

10-11-3Pittman-TD.jpg

STAT LINE: Height: 5-11 1/4 | Weight: 182 | 40-Time: 4.44

Strengths:

Very fast and quick...A good athlete with fluid hips...Has good ball skills and instincts...Will come away with some interceptions...Does a nice job in man coverage...Tough guy who is very physical despite his lack of bulk...Was very productive and highly decorated at his level of play...Still has a lot of upside.

Weaknesses:

Undersized and has a slight frame...Needs to hit the weights and get stronger...Did not play against elite competition...A little too aggressive at times...Durability might be a concern...Raw and will need to be worked with.

Notes:

Also a great special teams player...Head coach Scott Stoker says he's as good a cover guy as he's been around and that includes Terrence McGee...One of the top sleeper prospects in the entire draft and has some physical tools to develop.

OVERVIEW: Speedy and smooth, Pittman is a two-year starter as a cover corner who came into his own last season. A star sprinter for the Demon track and field team, Pittman is ranked eighth among the top 10 cornerbacks in Division I-AA entering this season by The Sports Network. He is the team's fourth-leading returning tackler. He has three career defensive TDs (two interceptions, one blocked field goal runback) and two career blocked kicks. SLC Defensive Player of the Week, 10/11/3 (Southeastern Louisiana)

Overall a great pick in the 5th,6th, or 7th Round. He may actually develop into a reliable nickel, an if he learns quickly enough a starter, or solid backup. Definitly worth looking into for the Skins FO.

sounds like the kind of player that williams and gray could make into something. playing special teams is a must until then. his competition would be guys like morton and patterson

looks as if he could be a servicable nickel corner.

Maybe a bit down the line. Most division I-AA players need a little more time to adjust to the NFL given the lower level of competition they dealt with in college. They also tend to be late-round gambles that may or may not pay off after a few seasons.

At this point Jimoh is probably a better-suited nickel corner.
