If one thing I have learned from watching Cam is that having the best athlete on the field helps. Patterson is explosive with the ball in his hands. Not pretty good like Allen, explosive as in the Tavon Austin category. He played very well against the NFL B team (SEC). He is 6'2" which is good because our QB misses high. He is fast, which gives us a threat on the other side of the field to go to the house.
Also , first round picks don't cost what they used to. We aren't paying him a 40 mill contract at the 14th pick. Today's rookie scale allows you to be aggressive in your draft picks.
His hasn't shown that he can high point the ball or make jump ball catches. So that idea about him helping Cam on his high throws isn't a certain thing at this point.
Plus the idea about being the best athlete on the field is false.
1. Being the best athlete doesn't make you the best player.
2. There are a lot of great athletes on the field. So he might not be the best athlete on the field even 25% of the time.
