Scouting report: Brandon Pettigrew

Brandon Pettigrew

6’6, 260 pounds | Oklahoma State | Tight end

Strengths: Pettigrew is an NFL-ready tight end with good athleticism and a frame well-suited for the pros. Good enough athleticism to be a serious threat in the passing game. Has solid hands but tends to catch with his body from time to time. Size causes mismatches for defenders. He’s too fast for most linebackers and too big for safeties.

Weaknesses: Too often catches the ball with his body. Seriously lacking as a route runner. Struggles to find holes in zone coverage. Always had a top-flight receiver to keep the underneath open. Charged in January of 2008 with felonious assault and battery on a police officer as well as public intoxication. Coaches and teammates say he’s improved his character, but this could scare some teams off completely.

Final word: On the field, Pettigrew is a complete tight end, similar to Jason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys. He has tremendous size and natural athleticism. He does, however, need to improve from a technical and route running standpoint. The interview process will also be key for Pettigrew, who had a run-in with the law.
