Rows do a good job of retracting the scapula and training the external rotators of the humerus. In the pulling process, the lats are stimulated and this has positive carryover into pullups. That's one of the reasons I feel rows are such an important exercise. Deadlifts, rows, and pullups all compliment each other.
