Rob Petitti School: Pittsburgh
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 347 40: 5.26 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter who became the team's
regular at left tackle as a red-shirt freshman.
All-Conference selection every season since
his sophomore campaign and named as an All-
American last year.
Positives: Massive, wide-bodied
lineman tough to get around. Sets with a wide
base, fights with his hands and easily controls
opponents at the point. Outstanding position
blocker who makes effective use of angles.
Blocks down well or engulfs opponents. Gets
movement from run blocks and displays a good
head for the position, with top blocking awareness.
Keeps his feet moving in pass protection,
effectively places his hands into opponents and
anchors at the point. Flashes a mean streak.
Negatives: Lacks footwork sliding out protecting the
edge, lumbers in motion and does not play
with balance. Looks poorly conditioned and not
explosive off the snap. Stands to improve the
strength of his base and at times does more
arm wrestling rather than driving defenders off
Analysis: Productive on the college
level, Petitti possesses the skills and instincts to
start in the NFL. Disappoints scouts as they feel
he is a lazy prospect who prefers to get by on
natural abilities rather then take his game to the
next level. Could develop into a dominant tackle
if he commits himself to conditioning, weight
room work and intense play for sixty minutes
