    There are still two good receivers on the board, Swope and Patton. Swope I get, he has a concussion history and this has obviously been a red flag for teams. but Patton? I dont get why he is on the board, I gave him an early second round grade.

    When I look at Patton I see a big strong receiver with elite route running.... perfect for a WCO like we use. Why do you guys think he has lasted so long?

    There may be some medical issue we're not aware of & I also read a report about two weeks ago that teams questioned his separation ability & didn't think he'd be much better than a #4 receiver. The Seahawks were rumored to be all over him but they've passed on him twice now.

    Teams think he is physically weak and can't get off a jam. Poor strength results at combine.
