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

You could say the same thing about Cox last year but I still fought against drafting him and now look at the defense. It is leaps and bounds ahead of where we would be with Cox on the line.

That's what makes this time of year so enjoyable. The speculation.

It all comes down to perception. Some folks precieve us to be a talent scrapped team that can't possibly fill all those needs in one year. While others see us as a team that can make a splash with just a few right moves.

We have holes, there is no arguing that point. The point being, how many holes do you precieve. Me, I see a DT to pair with Dwan and a RG as priorities. Help in the secondary would be next. The first two we can fill with solid FAs. The secondary is a different animal.

Can we get value with a DB pick at 14? I say yes. Many say no. Some think vet DBs are either too expensive or not worth the time and effort. I say with the way this year is shaping up, who knows? Good quality vet DB help just may be in the cards.

That is some of the many predraft scenarios that make this time of year so much fun.

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.

I disagree, I think he's on par with Julio Jones, but he's raw right now.

He is slower, smaller, weighs less, has smaller hands, shorter arms, can't jump as high and can't jump as far but sure he is on par with Jones.

Patterson is NOT Julio Jones coming out of Bama. His measurables are not the same, and he doesn't even know how to catch a ball with his hands, that is a bad habit. If we took him at 14 I would be extremely surprised. He will probably fall down to the Texans

He is no where near on par with a Julio. I wish people would stop saying this stupid poo. If anything he closer to Joe Adams then Julio Jones and AJ Green.

You're misinformed, let me show you why.

Patterson - 6' 2" 216 lbs 9" hands 31.75" arms 4.42 40 yard dash

"He should be a first-round selection and could be the first receiver off the board."

Jones - 6' 3" 220 lbs 9.75" hands 33.75 arms 4.39 40 yard dash

Green - 6' 4" 220 lbs 9" hands 9.25" hands 33.375" arms 4.5 40 yard dash

Adams - 5' 11" 179 lbs 9.375" hands 33 7/8" arms 4.55 yard dash

Gee, looks to me that Patterson compares favorable to both Jones and Green from the measurable standpoint and your inclusion of Adams was just stupid. But thanks for playing.

Patterson is raw, but he has all the physical tools to be an elite WR. His biggest knock is not catching with his hands enough, I have a feeling this is something WR Coach Ricky Proehl could help with.

Joe Adams has bigger hands than Patterson, hm. Didn't notice that before.

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

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

What about production and how they play which was my point? His production in college and his playing style matches Adams more then Green and Jones.

Gee do you not see that?
