The 6-foot-2 defensive nightmare Wide Receiver out of Tulsa, Oklahoma is one of the best division II players in the nations. Tariq Bitson was on pace to break all sorts of records last year before a season-ending injury in Week 9. The redshirt junior reeled in 63 catches for 1,255 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. In 4 of his 8 games, last season Bitson had over 200 receiving yards.
Tariq Bitson Highlights
Going into week 9, Bitson was only 521 yards short of the Division II single-season record of receiving yards in a season. Even though he only played in 8 games, Bitson was named an NCAA Division II statistical champion, Second-Team All-American as well as RMAC Offensive Player of the Year. He averaged an NCAA Division II best 144.9 receiving yards per game, 20 yards per game ahead of second place.

Although he was injured in week 9, Bitson is expected to return for his senior season. When you watch the tape on Bitson you see just how big of a nightmare he was for opposing defenders. He was constantly beating corners off the line of scrimmage using his hands, speed, and strength to his advantage. If Bitson bounces back from injury and continues where he left off last season, the sky is the limit for him.
When I watch film of Bitson he reminds me of a local talent from Florida named Gabriel Davis. Davis was recently drafted by the Buffalo Bills. He is a big physical and strong wideout who may need to improve a bit in route running but somehow comes down with the ball. Bitson is hard to bring down and he gives corners a fit because he is so physical at the point of attack. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
