Player Overview

With the last name of "Pitts" and growing up in Western Pennsylvania, was there any doubt where the talented cornerback would play his college football? He has started 38 games the past three years for the Panthers, leading the team in passes defended (eight) and interceptions (two) in 2014.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He's not lacking in the confidence category, trusting his eyes and driving on the catch point. He also isn't shy about talking at the line of scrimmage, doing his best to get in the head of wide receivers.

WEAKNESSES: Pitts has only average size and speed for the position.

IN OUR VIEW: Pitts, who has shed 17 pounds this off-season, is reportedly in great shape for his final season at Pitt and under the tutelage of Pat Narduzzi, he has a chance to secure a draft pick with a consistent senior year.
