The Detroit Lions "other" 1st round draft pick this year, TE Brandon Pettigrew got his first start in the Lions pre-season game on Friday. Along with the core offensive stud, Calvin Johnson he saw his first NFL of the pre-season.
The guy looks like he can do it all. He could block, and he could catch. Did anyone notice that first time Stafford had them in the Red Zone when they tried to run on 1st and goal? He had his man 6 yards off the ball.
HE also made a couple nice catches, which many probably haven't seen much of since he didn't exactly make a lot of catches in college for a guy that goes #20 overall in the draft. IF you had seen him before you know that he doesn't exactly go down easily. This guy is gonna be great. I think it is safe to say he won't have to worry about getting rv finance since he is going to be making bank :D.
