He still has us taking Sheldon Richardson, but does anyone here really think that we are going to pass up on Cordarelle Patterson if he is still on the board? I just don't see it. Some of these top players are going to really have to have some outstanding workouts/pro days to knock Patterson out of the top 14. Doesn't Patterson have the potential to be in the same league as Julio Jones and Dez Bryant? Is anyone very familiar with this kid? Any Volunteers on the Huddle that can answer that question objectively? I understand that Patterson is still raw, but he appears to be a versatile, impact player. Perhaps I'm fooling myself with this kid. I don't see him lasting until our 2nd pick though.

I don't understand the obsession with Patterson. He didn't do poo against good competition. Just go look at his stats. Only 750 receiving yards and over 200 of that was against fuging Troy. He didn't do poo in SEC play.

If Patterson is going to be similar to Jones or Bryant, then he won't drop out of the top 10.

Just stating to the truth.

What part of this screams great WR?

http://espn.go.com/college-football/player/_/id/532092/cordarrelle-patterson

He averaged 3.3 catches per game for 46 yards in SEC play. A total of 3 TDs in SEC play.

I'm not saying the guy doesn't have potential, I just think he's way too boom or bust to take at #14 overall when we have so many other needs.

These are but some of the thoughts on Patterson, and why he is getting the time of day. He's been compared to a bigger version of Percy Harvin on another site. I also read one site that said he makes the first guy miss. Like I said, he's raw and unpolished, but poised to make an impact given the right situation.

scout.com:
[quote]A big, strong target who is a mismatch waiting to happen on the outside because of his ability to go over smaller receivers, Patterson has prototype size and leaping ability. He's a bully on the outside, and that's meant in a good way. He attacks defensive backs with the ball in his hands, and with his long strides, he's deceptively fast. His size and skill make him a difficult cover - Scott Kennedy[/quote]

rotoworld:

[quote]
One scout questioned Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson's intelligence and believes his NFL team will have to simplify things for Patterson to have success.
It's Lying Season in the NFL, but this isn't the first time we've heard this worry about Patterson. "He’s explosive. He’s dynamic. He runs consistent 4.4s," the scout conceded. "I’m just not sure how smart he is. You’re going to have to keep it simple for him. But the kid is really dynamic." There were similar concerns about Dez Bryant and even A.J. Green coming out of college. Green scored a 10 on the Wonderlic and was drafted fourth overall.[/quote]

examiner.com:
[quote]Patterson transferred to Tennessee in 2012 after playing at the JUCO level. Patterson can raise his stock perhaps into 1st round consideration by performing well in pre-draft workouts such as the NFL Combine and his schools pro day. He has the enormous ability to be a big time playmaker wherever he lines up. [b]In just one year at Tennessee he set a school record for all-purpose yardage with 1,858 yards[/b]. He scored 10 total touchdowns in a variety of ways (5 receiving, 3 rushing, 1 kickoff return, and 1 punt return). Overall, Patterson like most of the wide receiver prospects in the 2013 class probably carries a 2nd round grade, but will get several opportunities between now and the 2013 NFL Draft in April to move up draft boards. He can make an immediate impact for a team with his size, speed and elusiveness in the open field. He can become a number one receiver in time if he can get the proper coaching along with playing with a veteran mentor.[/quote]

I'm just throwing it out there. I don't know. Perhaps he will drop to the second if he is as unpolished as some may believe, but I wouldn't count on it. Like rotoworld said, It's the "Lying Season."

If we think he's a bigger version of Percy Harvin, then hell yeah, take him at #14 if he's there.

The kid has talent, that's for sure. He's just way more raw than I would like for a WR at #14.

I hope there is one for us to take, easily the cream of the crop this year. Not saying biggest need, but Johnson, Joeckel, Fisher, Warmack, and Cooper are easily the best and safest players in round 1.

Sheldon Richardson and Floyd at DT are going high in mocks for a reason..they have the tools to actually be dominant in the NFL...not so fast:Fletcher Cox,Donatari Poe and Michael Brockers..

This class has legit DT talent outside of Star. Patterson is good too so I would not hate the pick.

So, who was the amazing QB at Tennessee and how was his blocking?

I think Patterson will be a player in the NFL for someone and he will likely be chosen in the first round. The issue for us is he the definite BPA for us at 14?? Much of that will depend on whether we have any cap space to do anything in free agency before the draft. If not, then Gettleman has already said that protecting Newton was a primary goal which suggest OL. Secondly we have bug needs at corner especially if we don't sign Munnerlyn. The issue is really how does a receiver fit in our needs and whether we see him as a dominant must have guy if he is available or whether he is a want but not a critical need at that point.

It isn't whether we want him but does he trump everything else.

Gah, if we missed Loutlelei by a pick I'd be bummed. If all those offensive linemen are gone, I'd take a long look at the safety from Texas then decide on him, Fluker, or Patterson. I just don't know much about Richardson, honestly.

Patterson is a kick returner and is not worth picking at 14. He jumps to catch almost any ball thrown at him using his body instead of just catching with his hands. This style of play will not work in the NFL.

Patterson had 1 year of major college football coaching, and still lead the SEC in all purpose yards. every mistake he is getting hit for, is correctable with coaching. people dont like the compare but he does remind you of a poor man Julio Jones.almost the same body type and athleticism. the big difference in the 2 is Julio had 3 years at Bama, getting the proper coaching compared to Cordarrelle having 1 year.

he is more than just a KR.

The problem was Patterson has lost a lot of the "physical freak" buzz he was getting before the combine. He was shorter then listed and wasn't as fast as people thought he would be. Then he wasn't as good on the drills when it came to hands and route running. Then you look at the film and see a lot of his flash plays were on gimmick offensive plays and special team returns. Not a lot on actual plays you want your "WR" to do.

Would you trade 5 picks to get Patterson? If not then he is not a Julio type to you.

So he's a bigger Joe Adams? About the same actual WR stats.

I haven't looked at any of his stats, I have only seen highlight videos and I watched everything on him at the combine. It's too late to try and teach a guy how to catch without using his body especially a first round pick. If we were able to take him in the 2nd or later then I would say it would be worth it but the value is just not there at 14 with all the other needs on the team.
