Quinton Patton and Ryan Swope
Patton has true #1 WR potential. He loves to block, is very aggressive, has a lot of fight in him, loves to compete, is a natural team leader, uses his quickness and terrific route-running skills to generate separation, has tremendous hands which allow him to make some silly-looking highlight reel catches, is a guy who has had to work his ass off every single step of the way, he got cut from his high-school football team tryouts early on, worked his way up to become a star, went to a junior college for two years, started off slow, then dominated at that level, went to Louisiana Tech and has dominated there as well. He's "the hardest worker on the team" for every team he's ever been on, the guy that shows up before anyone else and leaves after everyone else. His immense work ethic sets him apart from a lot of other WR's.
Always a threat to gain yards after the catch, not easy to take down and has good vision to break through the secondary for long gains. A few years from now he'll be one of those guys who makes a lot of teams feel silly for passing on him. I consider him the best WR in this draft, up there with Hunter and Allen. His lack of "jump off the page" measurables will have him be drafted lower than he rightfully should and some lucky team will be the beneficiary of getting a major steal.
Jonathan Banks, who is one of the top CB prospects in this draft said that Patton is the best WR he's ever had to defend, more complete than any other WR in the SEC.
Ryan Swope might be the closest thing to a Danny Amendola/Wes Welker type of player in the draft, not just because he's white. He's tough, hard-nosed, not scared to go over the middle, a team leader, total blue collar guy, puts everything out on the field, doesn't take plays off, has outstanding hands and quickness that allows him to gain separation. He's the ideal slot WR, he'll get drafted than a lot of comparable slot WR's, but still not high enough based on his skills and overall potential. In the right system he could be a true gamebreaking slot WR.
