                          Oklahoma St. TE Brandon Pettigrew

ChiefsFan717 with the pick...

First and foremost I must say that there is a high probability that the Eagles will deal one of their two first rounders or both come draft day. In all fairness, if they do choose to keep the 21st pick, they either go TE or Tackle. With Arizona OT Eben Britton still on the board, they could very well go in that direction, but I believe the pick here has to be Pettigrew. He could very easily be gone by this time come April 25th. Pettigrew is without a doubt the whole package when speaking of tight ends. At 6'5'' 263, and a massive wing span, he can certainly hold his own against some of the elite pass rushing DE's/LB's when called upon to help block. He also has a nonstop motor in the run game. Although he's certainly not the fastest or flashiest receiving TE in this years draft, he still has the ability to be a reliable outlet for Donovan McNabb.
 
There are several factors behind the decision to lock up Pettigrew at 21...
 
1.) There is no way that he makes it to #28...New England and more importantly Atlanta would snatch him up at either 23 or 24.
 
2.) Brent Celek = L.J. Smith (in other words, Receiving TE) Seeing that they wanted nothing to do with L.J. Smith told me two things. First, they are high on Celek as a receiving TE. And 2nd, they are going to look to either the draft or free agency for a more complete TE who can also participate in the blocking game. (L.J. or Brent can't do this anywhere close to as well as Pettigrew).
 
3.) Last but not least, Andy Reid stated that he already has legitimate possibilities at LT with both Shawn Andrews and Todd Herremans. With one of the two possibly moving over to left tackle and veteran John Runyan possibly returning to the right side, the Eagles could be more set than you would think at tackle.
 
Overall, Pettigrew is a STEAL here at 21!

The explanation was right on and the arguments were great. I'm sold on this pick. Chiefs fan should know as much as anyone about the advantage of solidifying the tight end position for years to come.
