Strengths

Positives: Prototype size for the position. Good overall musculature, yet has the frame to add additional mass. Physical and determined as a run blocker. Good initial pop and has the lateral quickness and upper body strength to sustain his blocks. Seems to enjoy the physical nature of blocking. Presents a large target to the quarterback and has strong, secure hands. Looks the pass in and quickly turns upfield to generate positive yardage after the catch. A mismatch for defenders due to his size and athleticism. Bullish runner who will drag defenders for extra yardage. Negatives: Remains a bit raw in his technique considering he has started four years. Relies on his size and advantage in athleticism to get a clean release from the line of scrimmage and gain separation from defenders as a route-runner. Struggled with an ankle injury in 2008, failing to capitalize on his opportunity to break out as a senior. Held without a touchdown in 2008. Character red flags were raised with Pettigrew's arrest for a felony charge of assault and battery of a police officer outside of a Stillwater, Okla. party on Jan. 20, 2008.
