LOL.......you would think that any WR in the NFL that isn't 6'3" or taller is absolute s**t judging by the reactions of some of the people here.


Exactly!!! I'm trying not to laugh at this "big WR only" obsession but it's kinda funny.

That would be an impressive combo they need for the future, if they pick the right guys

Let's hope we get an Aldon Smith type Baalke pick as opposed to a AJ Jenkins type Baalke pick. Definitely want the front office to pick someone this time who will break into the lineup/rotation from day one this time.

Exactly. I'm still optimistic about Jenkins future, but I kind of got the feeling that Baalke started to get a bit over-confident in his crystal ball, smarter than everyone else approach. Hopefully he plays it a bit safer this year. Of course, there is the obvious fact. Aldon Smith was picked at the top of the draft, and Jenkins was picked at the bottom.
"Louisiana Tech WR Quinton Patton met with three teams that attended the school's pro day.

Patton had dinner with the 49ers last night, met with the Broncos Tuesday morning and "went out" with Carolina, per Tony Pauline. The latter appears very interested in receivers this year, including DeAndre Hopkins, Keenan Allen, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, and now Patton"

He would be a nice addition, versatile player.

Phoenix49er, stop doing that, you're gonna go blind....
By the latter I assume they meant the Panthers? All the guys I like... Hopkins, Allen, Austin, Bailey and Patton. Like I said in another thread I kind of put the WRs out of mind because it doesn't seem like we would draft one in the 1st few rounds. I guess we could with Williams, Manningham and Boldin being FAs next year but not a whole lot of room on this year's roster with Crabtree, Boldin, Manningham, Williams, Jenkins, and Lockette/Moore. I could see the Lockette going back to the PS (don't think Moore is eligible) if we draft someone high. Williams or Manningham (if he can't get healthy) could get cut. If not that then the high pick rookie would probably have to be inactive since we would likely have 5 active wrs at most for games. Someone would have to be inactive. Could be Manningham until he is healthy, then maybe Williams or Jenkins or the rookie the rest of the year. Either way someone is going to have to sit out and all of the WRs are capable of playing. And all that would be with Lockette going to the PS which would mean we could lose him. Seems unlikely with the way Harbaugh has praised him but you never know with him. Good year to need a WR just not sure we do. Wish there were more pure FS's and 3-4 DE's in this class.

Edit: and don't get me wrong I have no problem if they take a WR early. I don't think we necessarily need one but I am find if they get one and just let the cards fall as they may. Let the guys battle it out... if it means a solid WR has to get cut or not be active than so be it. The last 2 years we realized our WR depth wasn't good enough and it hurt us in the most important games. Would possibly give us a chance to save money and upgrade from Williams or maybe even Manningham when they are FA's next year. On the other hand I have no problem if we use the picks on bigger needs. You can always draft a WR next year if we lose Manningham, Williams and/or Boldin.

Very good WR if he was there at 61 would be nice i like Da'rick Rogers but he's a gamble Quinton has good hands too...if the Niners draft a TE with our 1st 2 picks we'll draft a WR in the 3rd or else 2nd round we can draft a good WR within the 3 rd round.....swope,dobson,wheaton,rogers,patton,stills

I'm getting my "oh" face ready for the Draft just in case they do draft him.

Patton is a Harbaugh/49er player all the way to the core, selfless, good leader, hard worker, doesn't quit, blocks his ass off on the field, simply finds ways to make plays. A WR corps of Crabtree, Boldin and Patton would be damn outstanding.
"Among this year's draft-eligible receiver prospects with at least 100 targets in 2012, Louisiana Tech's Quinton Patton had the best (lowest) drop rate at 0.9 percent.

Patton dropped just three balls among 158 senior-year targets. The best drop rate was actually posted by Marshall's Aaron Dobson, who had zero drops among 92 targets. Patton's percentage remains impressive for a 6-foot, 202-pound prospect who's drawn pre-draft comparisons to Indianapolis' Reggie Wayne."

Seattle Seahawks apparently are all hot and bothered for this guy. If Seattle ends up with Patton and he becomes the type of player I envision him becoming....I'm going to be mad as hell for years to come.
"I just make plays," he said. "That's it. It doesn't matter if I'm blocking 60 yards downfield for a running back, going in and digging out a linebacker or safety. I have no fear on the field. Just get it done."

Damn do I hope Patton winds up a 49er sometime in the next 2 days.

Had to make a thread about this guy, will be updating this regularly over the next few months. As much as I was on the Fleener bandwagon last year, I'm far far more so with Patton. Totally amazed by this guy, think he's going to end up being a very outstanding NFL receiver and will end up as the best overall WR coming out of this draft after all is said and done. He's got amazing tools, top notch work ethic, total team player, ability to get separation, plays with intelligence and can make some big flashy catches aa Brandon Lloyd. He doesn't have elite top-end speed and hopefully that drops him far enough for the 49ers to have a shot at him. He's got everything you could possibly want in a WR and has true #1 WR potential. He loves to play physical, is not only a willing run-blocker but an enthusiastic run blocker, loves contact, has great yards after the catch ability, can be absolutely lethal on slants. Just a tremendous, tremendous prospect. I don't think this guy can just be a good NFL receiver, from everything I've seen, I believe this guy could end up as a truly elite NFL receiver, Top 5 potential.


One of the most well-rounded players at his position, Patton brings a special combination of on-field skill mixed with a strong off-field work ethic. This hardworking attitude is evidenced by his steady progression from a middle-of-the-road high school recruit to a possible early-round NFL draft pick.After two stellar seasons at the junior college level, Patton chose to attend Louisiana Tech over offers from a number of other FBS schools. You can bet there is a long list of coaches kicking themselves for missing out on this guy now. Measuring in at 6'2" and 195 pounds, this Tennessee native not only possesses great hands and shifty footwork, he also regularly lays down blocks that any hard-hitting fullback would be proud of.The energy that Patton brings to the field in undeniable. Even with his solid measurables, his best football quality may in fact be something as simple the attitude with which he approaches the game. The man simply never seems to take a play off. Even on hand-offs that are headed to the opposite side of the field, you always seem to be able to find the Bulldog's number four somewhere in the mix.An offensive coach looking for a no-nonsense, high energy receiver should pay close attention to this Louisiana Tech standout. He is a unique player who brings a real passion for the game with him every time he walks out of the tunnel. It has been a long road for the young man, but I think it is safe to say that Quinton Patton is finally NFL-ready.

Here's a scouting profile on him.


http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/profiles/quinton-patton?id=2539250









Grade 73.8 ?
6'2" Height195LBS. Weight Overview Louisiana Tech surprised many across the country in 2011, winning seven straight games in October and November and the Western Athletic Conference title – the first time they wore that crown since 2001. The Bulldogs lost a close 31-24 game to TCU in the Poinsettia Bowl, but during broadcast, it came to light that Patton and teammate Adrien Cole gave up the $300 Best Buy certificates awarded to them in their bowl swag to kids participating in the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Add that sort of character to his talent makes scouts very intrigued with his potential as an NFL playmaker and locker room presence.

Patton won first-team all-conference accolades in his first year in Ruston (which is located in north central Louisiana) after catching 79 passes for 1,202 yards and 11 scores. His efforts against San Jose State (five catches, 116 yards, one touchdown) and Nevada (7-162, TD) were instrumental in the Bulldogs' winning their league championship. It was no surprise Patton contributed right away, as several FBS programs had interest in his services coming out of Coffeyville Community College. Not only was he an all-conference receiver as a redshirt sophomore there in 2010 (687 receiving yards, four TD), but he also received honors as a punter (39.8 yards per attempt).

Analysis Strengths Good size for the position, has the height and length to play outside at the next level. Very good quickness off the line, gets to speed in a couple of steps and can shimmy to free himself and stick his foot in the ground to get inside position on slants. Uses a head fake to get the seam and possesses enough straight-line speed to take advantage of hesitating cornerbacks in off coverage. Stems to separate with good foot quickness on comebacks and out routes, also extends his arm to create space on short and deep routes. Catches the ball with his hands away from his body, even when tracking passes over either shoulder. Wins jump balls in the end zone and over the middle with good vertical and great concentration. Good sideline awareness to get two feet in-bounds while making the catch. Used on quick throws to take advantage of his shiftiness and surprisingly tough running, lowers his shoulder and is not easy for smaller cornerbacks to drag down after the catch. Sells routes where he knows he's not the primary target to free up the underneath or cross-field receiver. Shows fight as a run blocker, willing to hit multiple punches to keep his man at bay and works himself into the correct blocking angle. Hustles downfield to help out fellow ballcarriers. Plays with a feisty attitude.

Congrats Phoenix. You know more than the rest of us for sure. Patton is gonna be a good one for us.

Sorry Phoenix, I don't see the love for Patton. I see him more in the Mohamed Sanu/Alshon Jeffery mold. If Austin goes high, I'd settle for Marquess Wilson out of WSU. If he can go to the right team with a lot of veteran leadership, he'd be worth the risk. Guess we'll agree to disagree....

Not at all. Patton's got a lot better quickness than either of those guys, much more refined, finds ways to get separation against pretty much anyone.

Nice call Phoenix back in Decmber, wow. He really looks good. I only saw him twice, against San Jose and senior bowl. I sure hope your right. So far, it looks good.
