2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State
Through seven games in 2010, Pettis is continuing his impressive receiving career. However, the 6-3, 203 pound Anaheim, California product does a lot more than catch passes. In a one minute span against Virginia Tech earlier this season, Pettis blocked a punt, caught a touchdown pass and stayed in the game to hold on the extra point. He has even thrown for a touchdown during his senior campaign. That is some impressive versatility.
Yet, it is Pettis' size that will make a quality receiver in the NFL. He is not a little wide receiver who catches short passes and then makes plays with his legs. While Pettis is certainly capable of racking up yards after the catch, Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore can throw the ball up to his big receiver and know that more often than not he will make a play.
