BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter whose senior-year totals included 39 tackles and five tackles for a loss. Junior-year numbers included 37/7.5/2.5. Arrested in May of 2005 for DUI.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized defensive lineman with an average game. Keeps his feet moving up the field, plays with good pad level, and wraps up when tackling. Brings down opponents on initial contact.

NEGATIVES: Lacks quickness, explosion, and speed. Rarely gets penetration, displays minimal ability as a pass-rusher, and consistently handled by a single blocker.

ANALYSIS: Pitoitua possesses the size and growth potential to be a run-stuffing lineman in a conventional system, but he does not consistently play to his numbers and shows little fire in his game.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
