Cordarrelle Patterson always wanted to play for the panthers

Recommended Posts

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

Officially 4.42.

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.

At WR or RB, I don't care if you're not the brightest guy in the bunch. Can you catch and run and make guys miss? Perform in the clutch? Learn the plays? OK, cool. Get out there and make plays.

Like i said in the other thread, i dont think CP is goin in the top 10. Teams picking in the top 10 this year have O line, QB, pass rushing issues. Those are more important than taking a somewhat raw receiver with a small resume in the top 10, it would be a risk. Panthers and down is about his range. Plus the quality receivers in the second round would make it tough too. I could be wrong tho, just what im thinking right now.

I am really not sure about placing him. The only team that I could see picking WR before us without a trade is MIA....I think they buy Wallace though.
