NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #20- Detroit Lions- TE Brandon Pettigrew

The first Tight End chosen. #1 selection Matthew Stafford has someone to throw the ball to.

ESPN writes- Pettigrew is the most complete tight end prospect in this class. At 263 pounds he’s an effective drive-blocker who can hold his own working against NFL defensive ends. Although he lacks elite speed and isn’t going to stretch the field as much as some other prospects in this class, Pettigrew is a reliable possession receiver who does an excellent job throwing his weight around and using his frame to shield defenders from the ball.
