i've got to say the one that really excites me is that coradelle patterson kid. raw, but man can he move. dude has some decent height to him and a good frame. he's apparently a quick study and hard worker. his potential is through the roof and he's got what he needs to refine what he needs to quickly. i love the kid's versatility.


Like you, I don't do a lot of research until the draft nerds have narrowed down the field to a manageable number of candidates, then I'll take a look at the most likely candidates.

That said, I have looked at some tape (read YouTube highlights) of both Patterson and Allen. Patterson looks exceptional in the open field, but I was really turned off by his pass catching. Most of his receptions he was catching just like fielding a punt. He consistently lets the ball get into his body. Allen on the other hand, showed good hands and body control.

Take all that with a grain of salt though, as again, so far my "research" amounts to one YouTube highlight reel of each one of them. It is just something to keep your eye on as the process unfolds.

same here. what little i have read about patterson, though, is that he learns quickly and is really coachable. for any raw talents with high ceilings, those two things have to be there. i think that proehl can do a good job teaching the fundamentals.

Just heard Ron on Sirius nfl radio at the college practices. He was talking with Tim Ryan and Pat kirwin about why he was there and a little about our season. They hinted about Sylvester Williams, DT out of unc.. Saying he would shore out line up and really help hardy and cj wreak havoc. Looks like he may be available in 2nd or 3rd and is the 8th rated dt. He is rather raw but freakish.

Pretty much the same here. I like Patterson, he's an athletic freak but hate that he body catches so much. As Bwood said, raw as raw can be but potential through the roof.

Not that I think he's going #14, but if you want to watch someone who high points and catches with his hands, check out Hunter from Tennessee. He's fun to watch and faster than I thought he'd be, but has the previous injury and really only seemed to be coming back to form near the end of the season.

I have no idea what they feed the WRs at Tennessee.

You could have Jerry Rice in his prime, and it wouldn't matter if your o-line can't pass block. David G sounds like a guy who will put an emphasis on both lines...

I guess everybody assumes we will have a good secondary. The fact that Gamble and Capt could both be gone doesn't scare anybody I guess.

I'd like a developmental DT in the fourth, maybe, if we had to go WR and/or OT/OG early. To be fair, my defensive heart would rather go defense, like CB or obviously DT first, but if Warmack's there, the value's just too good to pass up. Fluker would be another worthy consideration. I'm prepared to see Gross and Gamble both go, but that would also possibly create too many roster holes on an already thin roster.

No, Thomas and Dockery are all-pro corners

Stick with your defensive heart.
