Nevertheless, we have a lack at "redzone WR". Patterson could fill this need AND he seems to be very fast, though he is still very raw. If he is the clean-cut BPA at our 2nd-round-pick, we should grab him.
A 6th-rounder should be sufficient for some depth at the D-Line, especially if he is experienced in playing at 3-4 DE. If you wanna get a potential from-day-one starter, you should go for a DE a day earlier, of course.
You are right about our top priorities but the draft will be driven by need-based BPA.
Who is Hill???
You mentioned patterson could be like Stephen hill, so i mentioned that i would have Taken Wolfe over Hill last draft, just like i would take Hunt over Patterson in this draft. Just doing a this year last year comparison thing.
I personally would ant to look a bit later at a guys like Jordan Mathews- WR- Vanderbilt- 6-3, 205, JR ----Or---- Aaron Mellette-Elon-WR- 6-4, 218, rSR, Both are big targets with good hands and good upside with a capable QB. Mathews IMO projects to the third, and Mellette Projects to the 4th/5th.
Not saying that we dont need a WR, because we do, but we have neglected Depth on the defense in recent drafts by going heavy offense in early rounds, and i would like to see us balance it out this year.
