49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo Says Dante Pettis 'Something Else, a Tremendous Talent'

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo missed much of 2018 second-round pick Dante Pettis' rookie season due to injury, but there is little doubt as to how he feels about the receiver.

He's a big fan.

Garoppolo said of Pettis during an interview with Sporting News' Vinnie Iyer:

"Dante is something else. His physical ability is different from most receivers, and different from any receiver I've been with. How he moves, it's very long and gangly, but he makes it work. He has enough explosiveness and power to get out of cuts when it doesn't look like he can.
