The Rams only slot receiver is Austin Pettis. I would not say its a bad thing based on this video. Here is what I took from it.

Every time Austin Pettis was targeted in 2012 (via RamsONDEMAND)

Positives

  • Good Route Runner
  • Above Average Hands
  • Good Red Zone Threat
  • Knows where the first down marker is
  • Makes the first guy miss
  • Can Play outside or slot
Negatives
  • Does not use his height as an advantage
  • Drops occasional pass
  • Shys away from contact
  • Not a Big Play Threat
  • Does not get great separation (May have something to do with a lot of his catches coming over the middle)


Overall I liked what I saw from Austin Pettis in this video. If he continues to improve I believe he could get 6-8 touchdowns next year and about 40 or so catches. From this video I counted 6 passes that hit his hands but he did not catch along with a few great grabs. One thing I liked is that Bradford seemed to look his way on fourth down which is good since Gibson is now gone. I do not think Pettis will become a number 1 receiver but I think he could be a reliable number 2/slot receiver.
What do you think of Pettis from this video?
