So if it hasn't happen in the 30 to 40 or 50 something years of the draft. What makes you think it's a good idea?

prove it wont work. prove it isn't a good idea.

think jimmy graham(saints tight end) only played one year of college.....drafted in the third round though......

where should he have been drafted?

should some team have taken a shot on him early?

just for arguments sake.

And again I would be jumping for joy if we could get Patterson in the 3rd round.

So seriously are you like going to be on suicide watch when we draft Patterson?

I have never seen someone so against drafting a position.

IMO Patterson is ahead of Demaryius Thomas of the Broncos Raw and better than Stephen Hill Raw. He is between Julio Jones and Demaryuis Thomas and DTs development was curtailed by an ACL injury.

Is he gong to be AJ Green ..no which is why I wanted him No.1 overall when he came out..but will he get to Julio Jones Bowe level? quite possibly and he has ELITE physical skill..

He is not Dewaye Jarrett who had a limited upside and maxed out his Sophmore Year of College.

I do understand however any apprehension over a high quality OL....but if its between DT and WR..I go with the point scorer.

I don't have to in 50 something years of drafting teams haven't done it for a reason. That's my proof.

Hey numnuts I actually posted a video of a WR I think is better and has all the criteria I looking for in a WR prospect. So i'm not against drafting a WR in The 2nd round. Where the talent fits the draft position.

From everything I have read/heard about Patterson is that he is one of the most coachable players in this draft. Incredibly hard working, smart, gifted athlete. The dude is an absolute freak. I'm sorry I would take him at 14 in a heartbeat. I would be fine with waiting a year or two for him to get to that level. But on the otherhand, if a top OT is on the boards, you snag him. There will be more wide recievers to draft in the second who can still make a big impact.

Here we go Cam is the example you come up with.

Dude i've ask you this before ( which you've avoided the question) but can I get 1 or 2 "WR" as the example of this? Since we are talking about WR can I get a Wr as the example. What WR this raw this unpolished with this little of college production and experience was a top 20 pick?

Find me a QB with less than 300 passing attempts and one year of starting and coming out of a gimmicky spread offense coming out of college and being drafted 1st overall.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

The bottom line is that in the draft, its about the talent/individual fitting the team.

So no matter what position they happen to be, our FO will determine who they see fit to best help this team and it could very well be Patterson, Banks, Trufant, Rhodes, Lane Johnson, Warmack, Allen, J. Williams, Vacarro, Richardson, heck even DeAndre Hopkins. I don't see the need to close out the idea concerning a position in particular just because of trends and what I deem a value pick.

Again 2 total different position but i can get closer then you actually taking a shot and answering my question.

Alex Smith came from a gimmick offense.

Ryan Tannihill was the 8th pick and spent most of his college career at the WR position.

Sam Bradford was hurt most of his senior year and didn't attempt 100 passes the year he was drafted. I will have to get to my desk top to look up more.

So now you take a shot.

So now you take a shot.

Had more than 300 attempts.

Not 1st overall, had more than 300 attempts.

Had more than 300 attempts.

Plus all of them started or played more than a years worth of games.

Try again bud.

(Though you are still missing the entirety of my point of just because it hasn't happened before doesn't mean it won't happen and that talent, potential and athleticism sometimes trump a resume of what you did in college.)
