Yeah I don't think Ron wants to gamble with his job or Gettle wants to gamble with his 1st pick in his 1st year as a GM in a 40 year career in football. Just saying a lot is riding for them to take that kind of gamble.

Allen is the safer and smarter pick if they go WR in the 1st round and there are 2nd round wr with pretty good upside as well.


How is Allen a safer bet? He might not be able to stay on the field. Rather take a raw prospect then a hurt one

Small injury history.

He is more polished very good in the open field as well. Has bigger hands. And a history of production.

So yes safer pick.

Allen is probably the safest pick in the draft WR wise, but what you see with him is what you get. The injury issue I think checked out fine, so that's not a huge concern for him. He's a High floor - lower ceiling type of player.

i think Hopkins and Rodgers are the safest bet at WR in this draft.

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.

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.


Cam destroyed the SEC. Cam won a National Championship. He was a proven college player in "one" year. Cam and Pat are both "JUCO" players, but its not even close. What Cam did in one year at Auburn is 100x more than what Pat did last seaon at Tenn.

JPP was called raw and went 15th a few years ago...worked out pretty well.

You're not getting finished products at this point and to assert that being "raw" is a reason to pass on a guy is nothing short of stupid.

so did CP. Cam is great, but Cam was also the QB who touches the ball on every single play. CP has proved to be threat to score whenever the ball is in his hands and one of the only people to score in 4 different ways. so not only did he break the SEC all purpose yards, but he scored in 4 different ways vs the top competition in college football.

Comparing a WR to a QB from a productivity standpoint is lunacy. QB has control over the entire offense, WR's are very limited...

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.

It's not just the raw thing now. Scouts are questioning his ability to learn a playbook. His overall knowledge of route running and routes (meaning the ability to read coverages). And the constant body catching.
Now at 14 you have to teach a WR to be a WR.
It's a lot easier to teach a DE to rush the passer and stop the run. Then it is to teach a WR 9 routes. When to use the 9 routes. How to get off of a jam at the line of scrimmage. How to recognize the different coverages the defense is in before the snap. How to block. How to beat zone coverage. How to use your hands down the field. Then the Playbook.

So did Joe Adams but he was a 4th round pick.

Point is we need a WR now. Not a KR/PR. Not a RB.
Now did he dominant as a pass cacther? That is the question.

5'11 185 pounds 4.5= 6'2 215 pounds 4.4. he can play WR and has the potential to dominate as a pass catcher. so since Richardson didnt even sniff 1 tech, why would you expect him to play it in the NFL? you are willing to look past Richardson flaws but not Patterson's, why?
