Bucky Brooks' latest mock (has us passing on Patterson). Hmmph.

Can't wait to hear what people think about me wanting to gamble on Denard Robinson...

I'd be okay with Denard in a later round, 4th or later. Every QB convert is not Edwards. Unlike Edwards, Robinson actually played against high level competition week in and week out. Also unlike Edwards, he had great production at RB and WR when his arm was too injured to play QB. The guy has great vision and speed, has great potential at WR.

FWIW, they're bigger than AJ Green's too.

Too bad it didn't help him hold on to the ball.

Maybe his hands are too big that he cannot get them up where he needs them.

I am so tired of seeing these clowns mock Richardson to us

How many years in a row have people mocked a dt to us in the first? It seems like almost every year the majority of mocks have us taking a dt and we never do will they ever learn? Lol

If Pattersons ceiling, is to be the next Devin Hester, do you take him at 14? Hester is a game changer on returns, but a so so receiver and that is what I think Patterson will be. So if my opinion is true for arguments sake, is he worth the pick?

I think you meant "doo-doo" reciever. and patterson is NOT that. He is leagues ahead of hester in terms of the WR position.

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.

I don't understand the obsession with drafting a WR in the first round, either. If Cam doesn't have time to throw, what's it matter? We already have a solid core. Pretty sure we'll be looking in FA for a receiver. Who the hell is going to start at CB? This isn't Madden.

Raw is made up of shades, and no two raw players are the same, so comparisons are pointless.

Some players, like Cam, are considered raw because they haven't done something (like take snaps from under center or reading a defense) and people assume it will take time for them to learn how...if they can ever learn it. But others, like Patterson, are considered raw because we have seen them do everything they will be expected to do in the NFL, but have clear weaknesses that must be corrected before they can live up to their potential.

I like Patterson, and was high on the possibility of taking him at 14. However, the more I hear and see about him, the more wary I become. There is no doubt that he is explosive...particularly with the ball in his hands in the open field. My concern comes with pretty much every other aspect of his game. They were talking the other night on Path to the Draft about how he jumps for most balls, even when he doesn't need to, and that receivers like that are almost always body catchers...and when I watch clips of him, that is exactly what I see. He also is not a skilled route runner at this point. And from what I have heard and read, he is not considered the most intelligent of guys and was not giving teams a good impression in the interviews at the combine.

With that said, I think he will be a good receiver, and definitely worth at least a 2nd, but I am not sold on the fact that he will fix his flaws to the extent that he will ever become a clear #1 receiver. But I do believe he can be at least a solid #2, so if we do take him, I think he does add value and makes the team better.

Have some pie and rep, Woodie. Seriously one of the better and honest answers that I've seen.
