Cordarrelle Patterson always wanted to play for the panthers

141 posts in this topic

he might be a decent pick...would trade down first then see if he is still available......better guys coming out have went lower.......and in no way am i trying to dim his light......

wouldnt be sad at all if they picked him up just dont think you should get him at 14....i dont think hes on that megatron level.....and their are still some solid wr you could pick.

another team might get him first anyway though(BPA theory)...it only takes one guy to fall in love with another guy then you get picked up early.

I don't think that you've seen Patterson play, no offense. The guy is going to be amazing. Jaw-droppingly good. He may not be Calvin Johnson, but he is easily on the same level as Julio Jones when he was entering the league. The guy is absolutely incredible.

i keep seeing people complain about the idea of patterson at 14 because they dont see a megatron, aj green, julio, or blackmon level player...but really would you ever see one of those guys at 14?

i just think people have some awfully unrealistic expectations of a WR at that point.

People also say we need a new #1, not someone who will only get to Moose's level. Completely disregarding that Moose has 11K+ career yards, 60+ TD's, and had a year where he had 1400 yards and 16 friggin touchdowns. People think if you don't have a 1500 yard, 15 TD guy every season then they aren't a number one.

Since you listed the 3 players I mentioned, I assume I'm included in that observation. I said I wouldn't mind him at all. Just that he's not a top 10 WR. Every year doesn't have a WR in the top 10, and when they do they're guys like the ones you mentioned.

A couple of years ago the first WRs didn't go until the 20s, and they were Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant. Dez had the off field stuff or he woulda been top 15 probably, maybe top 10, but Thomas was a similar prospect to CP, though for different reasons. Thomas was a bigger guy with better hands, and CP is quicker and more elusive, but they're both guys with less college production that were/will be drafted based on what they could possibly be, not what they've shown they likely will be.

Let's not get carried away.

Unless your willing to trade up and spend 5 picks on him he's not on Julio level coming out.

I'm a Patterson fan and would love us to draft him...but he isn't quite on Julio's level coming out of college.

I just don't see him dropping to us at #14. I'd expect Miami to grab him up if he has a great combine and Dee Milliner is off of the board.

I love Patterson as much as the next guy, but no way we trade up and no way he fails to us. Plus the is so many quality wr's in the draft such as Austin, Allen, Willams,etc.

Anyone with doubts, go watch his highlights. The guy has vision with the ball in his hands that practically borders on ESP. He's got the size, the speed, and while he is raw you can coach the fundamentals. You can't coach the type of raw playmaking ability he has.

I was on the Cam bandwagon in 2011. I was one of the first ones here on the Luke Kuechly bandwagon in 2012. For all the same reasons that I wanted us to take Cam, I think Patterson is our guy. The similarities are certainly there, both in terms of his troubled past, the one year wonder claims, but also - and more importantly - the insane natural talent and athletic ability.

Let's bring these two beasts together for the next 10-12 years.
