    Both 6th picks overall, but neither team traded up for the pick.

    Pitts is the kind of player that turns a good offense into a great one. There are going to be a lot of interested parties.

      I was wondering about this. Thanks for the info. Maybe he does go top ten. I hope so. Mullinz needs all the help he can get.

        He’s the best offensive weapon in the draft and will be taken before anyone that’s not a lineman or QB

        Butters will be getting a lot of calls over the next couple of months with scouting reports on the great players he's put in this draft. I doubt Mullen is spoken to a single time by a NFL scout.

          We should change the thread title to include toney. He's more than deserving.

            We can only speculate how he’ll do in the NFL, but there’s no denying he’s uncoverable in college.

              there is no better tight end since 1999.

              truth is he's essentially a strong wide receiver also. Teams COULD line him up wide or at a slot. even a team that has a good tight end may still covet him.

                  Kellen Winslow II
                  Vernon Davis

                  I don't think either drafting team got their return on investment.

                    Neither of those guys COULD (not ideal jist could) play WR or slot.

                    Vernon Davis ended up having a nice career, I don't think either was the physical freak that Pitts is. If Pitts played the whole season, he would be on the heisman list at TE.

                      Davis was an absolute freak. He was 250 at the combine and went sub 4.4 and over 40" vert. Think his bench was very legit too. That's insane.

                      A big thing that makes Pitts 'Pitts' is the athleticism/length combo makes him unstoppable if he wins his route.

                        But Davis was an athletic freak, his combine was incredible... but his passing catching (if I remember correctly) was highly suspect on film.

                          Vernon Davis has the 10th most career catches for a TE in NFL history (583), the 11th most yards (7,562), and the 6th most TD's (63).

                          Not exactly a bust.

                            Davis was big and fast but not shifty at all. Pitts is big and fast and can stop and turn on a dime. He's twice the athlete davis was. Dude will be a monster in the NFL.

                              In college, Pitts was a secret-agent TE - in the NFL, he'll lose his cover.

                              The 20-shuttle is the test for measuring 'stopping and turning on a dime'. Think Davis ran a 4.17, which I'm guessing would have been top-25 for any position at The Combine last year.

                                Didn't say he was a bust, he had a nice long career in the NFL. But when drafting a player 6th overall, He never broke 1000 yard receiving, had double digit TD's twice, did have a nice long 8 year career with the 49ers before bouncing around the league retiring last year.

                                But you expect more for the 6th pick overall, he was solid but at any point would you say he was the top one or two at his position in the league.
