    WR Michael Pittman
    You don't often see a 6-foot-4, 223-pound receiver run routes as well as Michael Pittman. And the same athletic ability that aids his route-running showed up on the field in Indy on Thursday night, as he posted the fourth-best three-cone and second-best 20-yard shuttle.

    Entering the week, Pittman was among the 40 best prospects on PFF's big board, primarily because of his reliable hands and insane catch radius. Over the course of his career, Pittman dropped just five of his 176 catchable targets and showed the ability to bring in some off-target passes that others just couldn't. We knew that he had solid straight-line speed, and we figured he'd test well this week, but he still managed to exceed our expectations.

    Ford. But I'm also interested to see if Drake London stays inside or moves outside. He doesn't exactly look like a typical inside receiver, but how do you argue with the results?

    It felt like Pittman was here forever. An all too rare case of a player sticking it out, having some ups and downs, and showing enormous progress at the end. He was a beast last season. No one could cover him. A man playing against boys even in the Utah game. He was Wilt Chamberlain going up against Pee Wee Herman for those 50/50 floaters being lobbed in his direction.

    This is genius. The reader {me} doesn't know what the poster means.

    Is it he'll surprise no one here, because we all know what he can do ?
    Is it he'll surprise no one because he thinks he's not a good football player , and we never expected anything at the combine ?

    what is it ???????

    ah never mind. I really don't care.
