Been watching Patterson highlights

And what you keep missing when you repeat this Mantra is. Cam had the greatest season of any QB in history of college and dominated the best conference in college football with a avg. Team around him. Patterson didn't do that as a WR.

Plus the fact that QB's are over drafted anyway. Ponder and Locker were top 15 picks. Geno Smith will be one this year even thoe some scouts doubt he is a franchise QB.

so having the best all purpose season in the SEC is not great either?look man you do not have to defend your hate for him to every person in every thread. it is very tiresome, and old.

Patterson Dominated on his team..... lol to think other wise is silly.

He broke Tennessee's single season mark for yards from scrimmage, broke the SEC's Total KR (PR and KR combined) average record. 2nd highest KR of all time in a single season in SEC history.

Scored touchdowns 4 different ways plus threw for one, Doesn't happen that often in College football at all. (First time 4 td's 4 different ways has been done since 2008)

24 KR for 671 yards - 1 touchdown

4 PR for 101 yards - 1 touchdown

25 rushes - 308 yards - 3 touchdowns

46 catches - 778 yards - 5 touchdowns

That's 1858 yards on 99 touches with 10 touchdowns. Average of nearly 19 yards a touch and an average of 154 total yards per game at almost a touchdown per game. That's domination if you ask me.

He didn't dominate as a actual WR. All the all purpose stuff is nice addition but I we want him to be a WR who dominate as a WR. Cam dominated as a QB.

This is my problem with some of you people. Why is it you can state your love for a player in every thread you want. But I can't detail his flaws without 1 hating him (which I don't) or 2 being told to stop expressing my opinion.

Your post just told me. You can't debate me and you want me to stop because you can't come up with a valid point I can't dispute.

it is more so about thinking a guy who needs developing can contribute to a team in a major way.every rookie needs to develop.

Different way of developing a WR to a QB

what?so a WR can not develop thru reps on the field or coaching?again im comparing the 2 because both where considered raw and could not help a team for years to come, but one has proven that while developing you can still contribute to a teams success.

You are comparing the 2 because you can't find another WR that was this raw, with this little of college exp. and this little amount of production at his pro position ever drafted in the top 15.

Top 10 picks -

Darrius Heyward-Bey - 2008 Maryland - 42 catches - 609 yards - 5 TD's

Ted Ginn JR. - 2006 OSU - 59 catches - 781 yards - 9 touchdowns

Troy Williamson - 2004 - Scar - 43 catches - 835 yards - 7 touchdowns

I mean there's plenty of other ones over the last 10 draft's, but those came off the top of my head. I just had to look up the stats for them. There's been other players taken in the top 5 that have never had a 1000 yard college season as well with in the last 5 or 6 drafts as well. These are just the players that have been taken in the top 10 as well, this list grows even larger if you include the top 15.

I imagine that the list would be probably 10-12 players deep just over the last 10 drafts if you include the top 15.

Patterson has more upside then any of the above I listed as well.

My bad I forgot to add "and succeeded ".

Bay was at UM for 3 years

Ginn was at Ohio State for 2

You're right with Willamson.

But as you can see from your examples it didn't work out to well.

None of those guys set records in the SEC either though, which Patterson did. Gotta be kinda hard to do considering how tough the SEC has become. I just don't feel like doing the research on this, but I know there's a couple of prospects that succeeded in the NFL.

In all purpose yards.

We have enough RB to take hand off and now we have Ginn for KR/PR.

What we need is a WR. I wish he had set records in being just that.

The last situation that this really came up in was a while back, Guy was in school for three years but only saw a lot of playing time in year 3 because he switched from QB to WR was way back in 1993 when Curtis Conway was selected 7th overall based on talent and potential not production.

He went on to play in the NFL for 12 years scoring over 50 total touchdowns. He was even less polished then Patterson and he did pretty fine. That's really the only situation minus Williamson that I can find for a player with as little playing time as Patterson does.

Patterson also blew it up in Juco as well, so he's got a bit more experience under his belt and has shown way more flashes then any of the past examples that I can find.
