( Merged)Skins Interested in Luke Petitgout

ProFootballTalk.com -- The Best Pro Football Scoop on the Internet

According to PFT the Skins are looking at Petitgout to replace Dock. Which is interesting because Petitgout is a OT, but I doubt the transiton would be to difficult. I personally do not want him unless he comes really cheap.

Re: Skins interested in Luke Petitgout

Someboby farts and these guys have something new to write about!

I don't have a whole lotta faith in these reports. They would want to make a move on a OT and make him a guard?
Another GIANT REJECT!

Petitgout was good for the Giants, he just couldn't stay healthy. I wouldn't sign him unless it was for close to vet minimum.

Re: Skins interested in Luke Petitgout

If there was any truth to it, which is quite a stretch considering the source, I'd be fine with Petitgout if the price was right.

If Samuels or Jansen were to go down for a game or two, he'd be OK in a pinch. Let's just hope that never happens.

Mooby - vet minimum is about right in my book - and I would go one step further and say he is brought in not as our guard but as a backup to both tackle spots to provide depth(in case Wade leaves). Then the Skins should go out and get a Holland or use a low round pick on one if need be for the Guard spot.

Denver already signed Holland.

Petitgout has experience playing guard, but if he comes here he will either end up being solid depth, or competing for the starting LG position.

Re: Skins interested in Luke Petitgout

He has guard experience.

2006 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 74 | Key
Alert: None

Comment:
Petitgout is consistent, durable and experienced. He has some versatility, having played both tackle positions and guard in the NFL. He is tall, rangy and has good first-step quickness. His is smart and has surprisingly good feet for his size. He understands blocking angles and knows how to work defenders. He usually plays in control, rarely overextends and can handle combination moves. He is adept at cut blocking when necessary. He moves laterally with ease and has some natural ability to change directions. He can mirror and slide with most ends and run them past the pocket with his long arms. He is effective on pull and trap blocks and on the second level. His footwork and frame help him close down separation and maintain contact with defenders. But Petitgout lacks ideal power and athleticism. He can get a little upright, and he won't move the pile in the run game. He has some problems against big, strong two-gap linemen. He lacks lower-body explosiveness and isn't a great finisher. He isn't quite quick enough when isolated on the edge.

Players with that ability are a prescious commodity in the NFL now days, and I know Bugel has always loved for his OL to be interchangable, espically at guard/center & tackle /guard. Having the ability to be versatile along the line enhances longevity in the league.

If we get Petigout to play guard, he won't be the road grader that Doc was, but he'll probably be better at pulling on counter running plays and at pass blocking. Sign him to a lesser deal, than more power to our front office finally taking a prudent approach to free agency.

This year has been a nice departure from The Danny making every guy he signed in the past among the richest at their positions. I really like the defensive signings so far (Fletcher and Smoot) at a fair value. Add a stud DE in the draft, and this D has a chance to return to top-10 as it was in Gibbs's first two years.
