TE Dennis Pitta Scouting Report

TE Dennis Pitta, Brigham Young
Pos. Rank: 7 Grade: 3rd Round Height: 6-4 1/2 Weight: 245 40: 4.66 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: Terrific pass catching tight end most effective in motion. Effectively uses hand technique to protect himself, consistently finds ways to get open and displays good awareness of zones or coverage thrown by the opponent. Possesses terrific focus, natural receiving skills and goes up against defenders to make the difficult reception. Does not break stride to catch the ball, lays out or extends for the tough grab, taking the big hit it holding onto the ball.

The Bad: Gives effort blocking yet lacks strength at the point and struggles to finish blocks or falls off them altogether. Adequate speed yet not a true downfield threat.

The Verdict: Pitta has been wildly productive the past three seasons and is a pass catching tight end with natural receiving skills. He won't wow scouts with his athleticism yet could very easily make it as a move tight end or in a West Coast offense.
