Cordarrelle Patterson always wanted to play for the panthers

Patterson running a 4.37 means we won't get him. He's going top 10 for sure.

Officially 4.42.

I would be happy with this pick! At least if Fisher and Star is off the board

Russ Lande of the National Football Post hears Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been "very unimpressive" in team interviews at the Combine. Lande suggests Patterson's poor interviews coupled with an up-and-down showing in Combine pass-catching drills could result in him "sliding down draft boards." As an athlete, Patterson remains a 6-foot-2, 216-pound freak. He ran a 4.42 official forty with a 37-inch vertical and explosive 10-foot-8 broad jump.

Russ Lande says that Patterson is turning teams off in interviews.

Interesting. Didn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed during Mike Craft's interview with him. Wonder what the specific cause of concern is...I vaguely remember hearing he had some character concerns but I could be wrong.

He doesn't have character concerns he just isn't smart. That's why he left after one season because he was not doing well in school.

He seems like a pretty funny/chill back guy in other interviews like in college this past season. He might be a little camera shy too.

I dunno. I wondered if it was that he is just plain stupid. Even though he is talented, he did not produce that much at Tennessee, but Bray was not great.

I am leading away from WR a bit anyway. Here is the entire post:

I've actually heard/read he was a great teammate and is very coachable. He obviously doesn't come across as well spoken, but thats irrelevant to me.

Agreed I could care less if he isn't that bright of well-spoken. If he can be coached up to catch with his hands away from his body and run crisp routes then I'll take him at 14. Hopefully these interviews cause him to drop to us and hopefully Carolina pulls the trigger because they see him as BPA.

Starting to sound a lot like Dez Bryant without the off-field issues.

Do want!

I haven't heard the immaturity or lack of effort away from the ball thing brought up with Patterson like I did with Bryant. Dez was a top 10 talent that fell to the 20s and Dallas got a steal. As someone mentioned above I also have read that Patterson is very coachable. If Dez can fall as he did, I think its possible Patterson falls to 14. Couple his rawness with being unimpressive in interviews and it may just happen. I'd be pretty disappointed if we passed on him though.

Oh heck yeah man. I was just speaking in terms of on-field ability. I was just paralleling the amount of talent and their similar lead ups to the actual draft - both have copious amounts of ability, but both are going to be a steal because of poor interviews leading to their draft stock dropping.

From everything I've seen on Patterson, he is an almost identical player in terms of on-field ability to Bryant - rangy, explosive, etc.
