When the fug has he done it before?

It's crazy for you to just think that a guy who has never coached or develop talent can do it in his first shot at it. You act like Ricky is going to step in and be Richard Williamson.

You act like we'd be drafting someone who'd never played football before. He wouldn't be trying to teach some track star how to play WR. He'd be developing a college WR to play WR in the NFL.

This is why I DON'T want Patterson in the 1st. He's just too raw. I don't want a player who is that raw at #14. No thanks.

If we take a WR at #14, I want to take a WIDE RECEIVER, not a talented athlete to try to develop as a WR. Patterson may turn into a very good NFL WR for all I know, but I think it's going to be a few years down the road. I wouldn't expect much out of him as a WR for the first couple of seasons. I don't want a project at #14.

Then we are saying the same exact thing. I said in my post I think we should take a WR this year. But it should be option for rounds 1,2,3 if we can get a 3rd and 4. It shouldn't be just a 1st round option. And I don't want Patterson at all.

At this point I would take 4 or 5 WR over Patterson.

I don't think it's ever a good idea to force a pick. You should never go into the draft saying "we're gonna draft position x in the 1st". IMO, our biggest needs are WR, DT, OL, and DB in no particular order. In the 1st and 2cd, we should take the BPA out of those positions.

I agree my only hope is they don't take the gamble with Patterson at 14. If we trade back get some more picks then I wouldn't have a problem drafting him either just not at 14 and only have 4 picks left. As long as we get starters out of our 1st 2-3 picks I'm happy. Preferably either at Ol, Dt, and the secondary.

the more I hear about Patterson the less and less I want him, we aren't known for developing receivers, and this kid is going to take a lot of work

But you get called a hater if you're concerned about his flaws.

I don't think it's about "hating", it's about legitimate concerns. We only have 5 picks. We gotta make 'em count. If we were the 49ers coming off of a Super Bowl appearance and having 14 picks to play with, it'd be more tempting to roll the dice on a prospect like Patterson. We just have too many holes to fill and too few picks to do it with to take such a big gamble.

Tell this to the Pro Patterson group. Where have you been the last month when I was getting torched for the same opinion?
