The simple question is: 

1) Is Pitts better than Ja'Marr Chase? I think the answer is no here, so I draft Chase.

2) Is Pitts better than Devonta Smith? This is debatable as Pitts may be able to offer a few things on offense where Smith is an outside receiver only, an intermediate-to-deep threat. Which is great, I would still take Smith over ... BUT... skinny-as-a-rail Smith also worries some on the health side. Can he take an NFL beating/ avoid injuries? But what an explosive deep threat! He's Randy Moss fast so Smith still should have the advantage. This one might be a coin toss, based on what a team sees...

3) Is Pitts better then Jaylen Waddle? Great if Waddle is Tyreek Hill or Odell Beckham. But what if he's only Cordarelle Patterson or Danny Amendola? I don't know well enough to guess what Waddle turns into... This also could be a coin flip based on what a team sees...

If Pitts ran in the 4.4 to 4.5 area, I would say these questions would be more interesting. But I thought I saw that he was mostly a 4.7 type runner. That doesn't do it for me.

I go with one of the 3 wide receivers over Pitts. Any of the 3 receivers. Bottom line: I'll take the game breaking speed and look for a later round mismatch like Pitts.

Yes, you always take who you have graded as the better value for YOUR TEAM. If it's Pitts, its Pitts, TE or not.

 That kind of speed (if he has it) would be wasted for blocking and going against LBs

Downfield blocking and blocking in space is also very important and opens big plays in the running game and screens, crosses, etc. Having a wideout who can block is a big advantage.

Probably tougher to find wideouts that will block than wideouts that can block --- :wink:

Your literally describing what iowa did with Fant and Hockensen. It really wasn't all that different than the regular offense. Now part of that is Stanley the QB sucked, but the whole scheme thing was really overrated. 

But, again, its more about roster resources. Even if Pitts is everything he can be and more, is that upgrade better than getting an outside speed WR to stretch the field? Or a linebacker who can tackle? Or a end who can get the QB?

If Pitts runs a 4.4 then he IS an outside receiver who can stretch the field.  Plus he's big.

If he is slower than that, then he's not and you don't take him.

If only it stays that black and white. More likely he shows up to run taped up after having tweaked an ankle in a workout and proceeds to post 4.53. xD
