Didn't realize that he had a year of prep school which made him eligible for this year's draft.

Well Pitt has just completely gone into the crapper. :x

He might be just the kind of guy that the Falcons would target with a late 4th-7th round pick to replace Norwood. However, I think that he's getting bad info on being a 3rd round pick. He's a bit light, and doesn't really have top end speed. Of course, there's all kinds of RB's in the NFL who have found a niche without having ideal physical assets.

I think he could go in the 3rd round although it depends on his 40 time. If Jacquizz Rodgers and Ryan Williams stay in school, then he'll be helped.

I'm disappointed but it's probably a smart move to come out. There's no guarantee his stock will get any higher with a down year and a new coaching staff.
