Pittman should be penciled in as the starter opposite T.Y. Hilton, though Zach Pascal and/or Parris Campbell will have something to say about that. This is a good short-term landing spot for the talented rookie given the addition of Philip Rivers and the 9.2 vacated targets per game that are up for grabs in Indy. Pittman should see snaps, and that’s half the battle for rookie receivers hoping to make a splash in year one. The Colts also lost Eric Ebron, who had 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Pittman’s 6’4” frame (and 11 touchdowns as a senior) should make him a primary end zone target for Rivers. Kevin Zatloukal's WR Success Model says there's a 30% chance that Pittman has a top 36 finish in his first three seasons.
