If he does, then we HAVE to take him! But I doubt he makes it out of the 1st round...
That's where he was originally slotted before all the post-season hoopla.
Take Eifert at 12 and Patterson in the 2nd.... Woah. I'm sure Tannehill would be a happy man.
If he's really THAT bad, and Philbin has zero faith in his ability to maintain a read in coverage and learn routes... phew. Ugly. A shame to waste all that physical talent.
Lots of guys don't interview well, but he is not interviewing to be a Toast Master....all I care is can he play WR in the NFL....so if he fell to us in the 2nd round that would be a steal. I don't think catching it with your body instead of your hands makes that much of a deal, as long as you can catch it.
I can't see that happening, but if he's available at #42, we need to run to the podium with our card just in case a team claims the NFL misread their selection. I'm disappointed actually, because I think the attitude has soured Philbin & Co. on him even if he falls that far, which is really too bad IMHO, because this guy has superior ability to Terrell Owens with a far better attitude.
There definitely are teams spreading the negative info on thick for Patterson this draft, hoping he falls to them. It will shock me if he makes it out of the teens.
I want to spotlight his weaknesses, which are numerous, but the way the league is set up right now this guy will make so many big plays it's going to sound stupid to knock him.
He really doesn't body catch all that much. Only when shielding defenders from the ball, from what I saw.
Smokescreen. No way it happens. There are to many team with holes at receiver.
Both the Rams and Vikings need a serious overhaul of their receiving corps. Both have young quarterbacks who could regress and hold back that entire franchise. Does anyone really think he will be passed over 4 times by those teams?
His main weakness, as far as we should be concerned, is that he's probably not deemed intelligent enough for/by Philbin. He will probably become a playmaker in the NFL, but not for us I'm afraid.
He'll go in round 1. Probably somewhere from 17 on. I could easily see the Rams grabbing him with one of their two first rounders. Jeff Fisher has never been one to shy away from players with supposed attitude problems or off the field issues if they are really talented, and Patterson definitely is.
I honestly see no way Miami takes him even if he does slip to either of their round 2 picks. The earliest I can see them even remotely considering any receiver is at pick 2b or their first pick in round 3 and I just don't see Patterson being the kind of guy either Philbin or Ireland feel like rolling the dice on. To add to that thought, that means I also can't see any scenario in which they take Tavon Austin in round 1, either. It just isn't an Ireland kind of pick, especially after he just threw so much money at the position in free agency. I would like to see Austin replace Bess in the slot as much as anyone else here but it just isn't happening.
There is absolutely 0% chance CP will drop past the first 32 picks of the draft... None at all.
I wrote this last month but I think some of the talking heads are starting to see it
Literally laughing out loud.
April is the cruelest month.
