Through only seven games this season, Pitts has 36 receptions for 641 yards and 11 touchdowns. His 11 touchdown receptions are the most by any tight end in the FBS this year. Among all pass catchers, Pitts ranks fourth in touchdown receptions.
The 20-player watch list includes eight quarterbacks, six running backs, six defensive players, and two wide receivers/tight ends. Fourteen different schools and eight conferences are represented on the list.
