Default Antonio Pittman to declare

According to Scott Wright, press conference is scheduled for letter today. Where do you think he will end up in draft. I think he will end up in third round but he is a good back and runs like Portis. Not as good as Portis but his running style is very similar to him.

wow- i'm stunned by this.

pittman is an excellent "one-cut" back for the texans' system. he could be worth looking at at 41-ish or wherever the texans second pick is. he will definitely enter their thought process.

not a draftnik but this only gives the Texans more options if they choose to not go RB/trade down in the first.

yes he provides more options for the Texans. He's definitely a back that needs to get his carries to be productive.

Honestly, I'd rather have the RB from grambeling St or the Race guy from Pittsburg state. Both are bigger just as fast and Race has been more than a little productive. Both Selvin Young and Pittman, all of them really, are going to have a learning curve on blocking and recieving in the NFL

sorry if that sounded a little "whichever team scores more points has a better chance to win"-ish.

I'd be a little surprised if he makes it into the 1st day of the draft, just depends on when teams start taking a bunch of RBs. I don't especially see the Portis comparisons, in some sort of way he runs in a similar style in that he is decent at making his one cut and going with it (can be said for several RBs though) but he's no where near as athletic or talented. He'd warrant consideration on the 2nd day of the draft, but I'd hope that we can secure a more talented RB somewhere this offseason.

pittman is a VERY tough runner and he catches the ball well. i had him on my fantasy team and i watched him a lot. he might go round 1.

As much as I'm on Troy, I don't want Pittman here (pains me to type the words). It would be another Wells.

Though bring in some Buckeyes, darn it!

I tend to agree w/ most of your posts, but I think you're slightly underestimating Pittman.

I think he's a solid 3rd rounder who MAY sneak into the 2nd. He is probably at worst a 4th rounder. I'm sure that's at least the advice that he was given otherwise he wouldn't have declared as a junior. JMO.

I would put him at about the 7th to 10th rated back in the draft....IMO that has fourth rounder at best written all over it....

He declared because he was about to lose his starting spot.

I like pittman, i wouldn't be mad if he came here, but only 3rd round & below. You know he's been coached well, he's a tough runner & baring AP falling to us we should consider him if he's there.

This is my tentative list as it stands now. So we have him rated pretty close. I guess I just think that there will be more RBs taken in the 2nd & 3rd rounds that you do.


1. Adrian Peterson
2. Marshawn Lynch
3. Michael Bush
4. Tony Hunt
5. Kenny Irons
6. Antonio Pittman
7. Lorenzo Booker
8. Darius Walker
9. Gary Russell
10. Kenneth Darby
