Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State

Few true freshmen work their way into the regular rotation at Boise State, but that is exactly what Austin Pettis did in 2007. Pettis did more than just play the occasional snap, he was one of the team's best receiving options, catching 46 passes for 465 yards and six touchdowns. Pettis followed up his successful freshman campaign with a great sophomore season, totaling 49 receptions for 567 yards and a team high nine receiving touchdowns. The good times continued in 2009 when Pettis caught 63 passes for 855 yards and once again led the team in receiving touchdowns, this time with 14.

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.
