Patterson - FYI

38 posts in this topic

The thing is, an interview not going well doesn't just mean he wasn't smart. Could mean they didn't like his attitude, could mean he showed up late, could mean any number of things. Doesn't just mean he isn't smart. Interviews and medical checks are probably the most important parts of the combine. 40 times and stuff are all good and well for the talking heads and mock drafts, but I would imagine teams place more importance on interviews and medical checks (and I've read as much online).

This could be the reason combined with being total loss when it comes to the white board.

Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson (88): Even a casual football fan can see that Patterson has elite physical tools and the ability to make big plays with the ball in his hands, which has him in the first-round mix at this point. However, the more NFL personnel I talk to the more I hear worries about the steep learning curve he will face at the next level. He played just one year at the FBS level and has a lot to learn in terms of route-running, got mixed reviews on his interviews at the combine and there are concerns about his ability to quickly absorb an NFL playbook.

Patterson (6-1⅞, 216) is more of a playmaker in space than college teammate Justin Hunter, but Hunter is more savvy and loose as a route-runner, and is much more natural tracking the ball and going up to win one-on-one matchups downfield. Both Hunter and Patterson have had some drops (and there are concerns about Hunter's toughness), but Hunter has more overall traits that translate to the next level and more potential there. Patterson is likely to come off the board first, but I agree with those who feel Hunter is better equipped to succeed at the next level.

If NFL teams are the ones saying that the interviews didn't go well, they can't just be thrown out because 'his football IQ is high.' They're not asking the kid to memorize the periodic table here, they're asking questions that they think matter.

Keenan Allen pro day was a flop yesterday, so Austin might go early but top of second/late first will be a flurry of WR's

Sounds similar to one Mr. Cameron Jerelle Newton.

And no fail. Let's compare A QB who had the greatest season ever by a college QB. To a WR who didn't.

Why don't you compare him to Ted Ginn, Troy Williams, and Darius Heyward Bay. All WR drafted highly on nothing but their athletic ability. Just like Patterson will be this season.

There are levels...

If he's just not quite Mensa material. that's not all that big a big concern.

If you think he might have trouble learning a playbook, that's something to think about.

If you think he's dumb enough to shoot himself in the leg or some other idiot stunt, you start shying away.

Some analysts are saying he'll drop to the second

According to league source, Cordarrelle Patterson may fall out of the 1st. Eric Reid's stock is on the rise and could go round 1

Jesus Christ all I said was it sounds similar to what some analyst were saying about Cam. Only one year starting D1, may not be able to grasp nfl play book, the "Gruden" interview where Cam couldn't name a single play he use at Auburn, potential to be great but a lot of doubters.

I didn't say he would come in and be Cam. It just sounds similar.

Kkl still trying with all his heart to sway everyone's opinion to be exactly like his. Never seen so much hate for a player in my life, except for Cam Newton.

I would be full of hate if I worked at Walmart at 35 years old too, though.

why do you always bring up this argument? its not valid. a WR cant impact the game/team like a QB can so why even mention it.

Why can't you compare him to players who played his position, had similar numbers, similar college exp. and were drafted high in the 1st round. Like people thought he would be earlier in the draft season.

I know why you don't. Some of you have him so overated in your opinion that you will use the best case scenario when comparing him to other players. No matter if they played the same position or not. Instead of using the more likely comparisons. Who play his position and didn't have the careers you want from a top 15 pick WR.
