The Indianapolis Colts have selected a big-bodied receiver to complement T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal, and Parris Campbell.

Michael Pittman Jr., a 6-foot-4 pass-catcher out of USC, gives the Colts a weapon that they lacked last season. Pittman had a very impressive 6.96 3-cone drill for a 6-foot-4 player, so he should be able to create separation at the next level.

Philip Rivers likes to throw to big receivers, as evidenced by Mike Williams‘ 1,000-yard season last year. Michael Pittman Jr. gives the offense added versatility and a more well-rounded passing attack. Philip Rivers could rely on Pittman to be that steady and reliable presence on the offense.

Expect him to start right away and put up solid contributions out of the number two receiver spot. He probably will not be drafted too high if at all in fantasy drafts, but Pittman Jr. could be an intriguing player to keep on the bench. Pittman can be a surprise player and one of the more productive fantasy rookie receivers due to Philip Rivers’s tendency to put up a lot of passing attempts per game. The opportunity will be there for Pittman Jr.
