I don't think this is the right place or time to draft a Receiver. We need lineman and I see more sure things on both sides of the ball in the first round on the line.

been watching film on this guy and what I can tell you is, he wont be able to do alot of that changing direction, stop and go etc in the NFL without getting seriously popped by LB or safety.

if you say so

Have you not heard of Steve Smith? Young Steve Smith did that ALL THE TIME.

i remember people saying that kind of thing about cam...that he couldn't do that kind of stuff in the NFL like he did at auburn because the LBs would kill him.

some players have it and some don't. patterson is one of those guys whose got it. he'll be able to make people miss and he will be able to take hits. i don't feel the same about hunter, btw. guys with that build scare the crap out of me after seeing the hits that smitty takes.

AJ green and Randy Moss have the same body type and they've been just fine.

Boldin and Jones has Patterson body type and they always get hurt.

It has more to do with how a player plays and less to do with body type.

Hunter gets more separation with his polish route running so he takes less kill shots.

Not to mention Hunter won't be put at risk with all those gimmick plays that Patterson runs.

You say gimmick plays, everyone else says versatility. And Hunter already tore his ACL. He's a bigger injury risk than Patterson.

what do you think about percy though luke..i mean he has been hurt but his play style is similar to patterson....and it has worked in the nfl. percy catches tds, runs for tds and returns kicks for tds.

i guess it comes down to is patterson as good as harvin........

Did he tear his ACL on being hit or a freak accident? But the fact coming off a ACL he was able to run the same speed as K Allen and produce 73 rec. 1083 yards and 10 td. IMO that is a freak athlete.

I call it versatility to. But he will be ask to run more routes and catch more balls then to run reverse plays and take hand offs. So I'd rather get the guy who can do that better.

I love Percy and his versatility but his play style puts him in danger of taking bigger hits and trying to make more plays around LB's and DLinemen. While pure WR's like AJ Green and Moss stay away from taking huge shots.

So my question to you is if you were looking for a WR to be your lead target. Would you want a Percy Harvin type or a AJ Green type?

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
