I am relaxing today. And man do I need it. How does an Intergalactic Agent relax when he is not destroying lifeforms? I bowl!
I’m working on my game. Honestly I’ve never bowled a strike in my life. But who needs to knock down pins when you can destroy planets!
Let’s see just release this bowling bomb down lane 15 and….
Nothing is going to stop that ball…just like Kamryn Pettway the Auburn Running Back.
Positives: Built like a fullback, Pettway is one of this classes bigger backs. He’s 6-0, 235 pounds and a classic North/South runner. If the Dolphins want thunder to go along with Drake – Pettway fits that mold.
In his best season at Auburn, Pettway gained 1,224 yards on he ground on 209 carries. That’s an impressive 5.9 yard a carry. To know surprise Auburn used Pettway a lot in the redzone. He scored 13 touchdowns the last two seasons at Auburn.
Pettway has a great initial burst. But its when he picks up speed that he does the most damage, bowling defenders over. Pettway isn’t just a big man – he runs like a big man. He uses that size effectively to wear down defenses.
Negatives: He’s not a home run threat. Like I said, he’s a north and south runner, who is really better suited for picking up tough yards rather than long runs.
He fractured his should in 2017 and only played in 5 games – no doubt the injury is a result on his running style which is basically “get out of my way”
Only 6 catches at Auburn isn’t going to catch a lot of GMs eyes. Like many other backs – he needs to work on his blocking as well.
The Alien Dust: The injury and the lack of breakaway speed means Pettway will be available late in the draft. I expect him to be a day 3 pick. If the Dolphins don’t pick a running back, he might be a great fall back option.
I would love to see a big back like Pettway paired with Drake to be our version of Thunder and Lightning. I even wonder if Pettway can play fullback.
The alien weapon of destruction Pettway compares to should be obvious to you. He’s a galactic bowling bomb – BOOM!
