IMHO. The other WR from UT Hunter is the better "WR". Coming off a ACL he had 73 rec. 1083 yards 9 td. That's impressive.
Hunter and Twill are two other guys that I think are worthy of 1st picks along with Keenan and Patterson. Patterson just have too much room to grow. He boomed in his first year in the NCAA DI level in a SEC conference. I have high hopes that he can impact the same in the next level. He also has great tremendous size and speed. I wouldnt say that the kid is "raw". I'll just say that Patterson isnt "polished". The potential is there for Patterson.
I hate to bring up Stephen Hill's name up again, but he and Thomas were two prospects that came out and were tagged being "raw". Hill isnt proven, but he has shown that he has potential to become a very good wideout if giving consistency at QB. Hill played very well in the beginning of the season alongside Santonio Holmes. Thomas was a very raw player coming out also. All he did at GT was run the 9 route in a read option system. Played well with The Golden Calf of Bristol and now is one of the Top15 wide receiver in the NFL catching passes from Manning.
Patterson will fit really well in our offense. We have an incredibly talented QB in Cam and Patterson will only improve learning and playing along with 89. That's exactly what Patterson needs.
