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

The main question is whether or not any of these guys, including Patterson, worthy of a pick at 14, and how quickly they could make an impact.

True. But he could play as our #3 until smitty wants to start playing slot or decides to retire.

I bet he goes before #14 though

Historically the top player at all skill positions are gone within the first 15 to 20 picks regardless of where they grade out. It is very likely that he wont be there when we pick just because he might be the best WR in the draft. Reaching is a fact of life in draft.

the question with Patterson is if you think he can learn these things because his athletic ability is through the roof. It's all about wanting the best bang for your buck. Do you think Patterson can become an elite talent or do you think Hunter or Hopkins are better options because they are more complete right now? I choose Patterson strictly from the standpoint that even if he fails to see his "roof" he will still be an impact player. While I think Hunter and even Hopkins will be good players, Patterson excites in a way that few players are able to. Patterson catches with his body, doesn't extend his arms and runs shitty routes. All those things are very coachable. Not trying to start ANOTHER discussion about Patterson but this is how I view things.

That's what I'm thinking. You are not gonna pass on a guy you absolutely think is going to be a beast, even if if is not NFL-ready on draft day. It's all going to come down to his workouts and what Gettleman thinks.

BTW, ButWhysTheRumGone sounds like a good name for a race horse.

yea, queue the Toby Keith Beer for my horses video, except i hate Toby Keith (ripped off many a good artist, Robert Earl Keen). But back to Patterson. Once again it all depends on who is there at 14, and who we pass over with that pick if we do decide on Patterson. But I think he is gonna be sensational, regardless if he turns into an Elite receiver.

It's an ongoing thing...I've asked him, he just has an inverted boner for Patterson.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
