BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection last season after totaling 242/1,233/14 on the ground, while catching 14/127. Broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and posted 1,331 rushing yards.
POSITIVES: Smallish ball carrier who effectively catches the ball out of the backfield. Quick-footed, slashes off defenders or beats opponents around the corner. Runs with terrific balance and squeezes through the small creases of the defense.
NEGATIVES: Not a strong ball carrier who picks up yardage off initial contact or breaks tackles. Cannot run to daylight in the open field.
ANALYSIS: A productive two-year starter at Ohio State, Pittman has potential as a situational runner/third-down back for the next level. Should see playing time early in his NFL career, yet may not have the physical makeup to be an every-down back.
