Dante Pettis is a name NFL fans and players will soon be accustomed to. The 49ers second round pick out of Washington is turning heads at training camp and was recently praised by All Pro WR DeAndre Hopkins.
At the training camp practices I attended, Pettis ran smooth routes and created separation. He has a unique running style which keeps defenders off balance and out of their game.
Pettis is an impressive athlete (check him out with a bat) but he was very impressive after practice. Each time I made it out to practice he socialized with the faithful, signing memorabilia and conversing with ease. Pettis was respectful, showed maturity and confidence during our conversation after 49ers practice. I have to say, I appreciate the rookie’s humble approach.
Pettis adds depth at the WR position and looks to be a playmaker for the San Francisco 49ers in his rookie season. The Ortega’s wish him nothing but the best! (My daughter, Emma with Pettis) pictured below. Go Niners!
