Michael Pittman had a senior season for the ages at USC. After posting 70 receptions in his first three seasons, he exploded for 101 receptions in his senior year, for 1,275 yards and 11 touchdowns. That certainly got the attention of NFL scouts. His 6'4" frame also piqued their interest, but it wasn't until the Combine that his stock really went soaring. He ran the 40-yard-dash in 4.52 seconds, which is excellent for a guy his size. He also had excellent times in the short-area drills, showing he has the quickness and long speed needed to play in the NFL.

It is rare for rookie receivers to post big numbers, but if there was a situation where it is likely to happen, this is it. Pittman has the size Rivers likes to throw deep balls to (think Vincent Jackson, Malcolm Floyd, Antonio Gates), he is experienced for a rookie (having played all four seasons in college), and there is no other receiver with size who is likely to keep him on the bench. It seems likely that Pittman will play 70% of snaps or more from the start of the season. Rivers established a quick rapport with Keenan Allen in his rookie season, when Allen had 105 targets, so there is precedent for Rivers quickly trusting a young player.

The biggest question for Pittman is likely to be a mental one - how quickly can he pick up the playbook, learn the entire route tree, figure out the timing aspect with Rivers, and so forth? If he is a quick learner, he could have a huge rookie season.
