NEW YORK, April 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's NFL the fullback position is a lost art form. Only about half the NFL teams utilize a full time fullback. The ones that do will certainly be looking at Michigan State's Trevon Pendleton. Trevon had a tremendous pro day at Michigan State putting on a show where people had him in the range from 4.58 to 4.72 in the 40-yard dash and caught balls exceptionally well.
Trevon appeared in 49 games in his career started 28. He is most notably known for his big touchdowns against Ohio State and in the Rose Bowl against Stanford. His biggest play came against Michigan on a 74-yard catch and run to help Michigan State get back in the game. You can see his athleticism in that play on display here. Pendleton was an All-State Ohio running back in high school who was also an outstanding linebacker.
Says Rick Serritella of NFL Draft Bible, "Trevon is moving up the charts and challenging to be one of the top 2-3 fullbacks in this draft class. There is not a fullback in the draft with better hands and athleticism." Pendleton is known for his tremendous blocking skills and helped pave the way for dynamic Michigan State rushing attack. He possesses great hands and can make plays after the catch which you see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_pGx_zCX10. This helps to make him a complete package at fullback. On March 16 scouts gathered at Michigan State for the annual pro day, and Pendleton made sure they did not leave disappointed.
Trevon met with six teams privately post his NFL pro day. This time not only would have been faster than any fullback at the 2016 NFL Combine, but also would have been the fastest combine time for a fullback since 2005. He continued to show off his athleticism throughout the day by leaping for a 34 inch vertical, and putting up 24 bench press reps at 225 lbs. His agent, David Schuman states, "Trevon is a unique player who can catch the ball and block equally well, he will contribute on every special teams in the NFL and has unique versatility. He is a can't-miss player."
