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

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.

they read his WR stats but yet took no notice to his all purpose stats lol.all he did was break the record for all purpose yards in a season in the SEC.

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.
