Prospect Profile: Kenneth Pettway
Kenneth Pettway School: Grambling Ht: 6-3 Wt: 236 40: 4.79 Year: 5Sr Bio: All-Conference selection who totaled 45/16/8.5 as a senior. Positives: Nice-sized defender best making plays up the field. Breaks down well, redirects to the ball carrier and wraps up tackling. Displays a burst of closing speed and suddenness to his game. Fluid changing direction, displays good footwork moving laterally and immediately alters his angle of attack. Makes plays in any direction of the field. Lined up in a three point stance last year and rushes the edge with speed. Negatives: Rarely used in space and does more chasing the action rather then diagnosing the play. Must do a better job protecting himself and become quicker disengaging from blocks. Analysis: A big athlete who forces the action on the field, Pettaway offers good upside at a variety of positions. Best suited at outside linebacker in a 34 defense, he could develop as a strong side defender in a conventional system.
