#28 out of 357 overall
#1 at TE
Pettigrew is a big, physical tight end who can dominate an opponent at the line of scrimmage and in the open field. He has prototypical size and is a tremendous athlete. He's quick off the line, moves well laterally and uses his strength and hands to his advantage in blocking situations. He provides a quarterback with confidence as he sets up nicely in an open area and flashes strong, reliable hands.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||Pettigrew was the top rated tight end in this draft and will come in and play right away. His versatility is key for the development of Detroit's running and passing game and he's solid in both areas.|
