Cordarrelle Patterson

I don't post much but lerk everyday and was up late thought what the heck... Saw this kid and was very impressed with his play making skills! Wondering what you guys thought of Cordarrelle Patterson? I feel like he'd solve two needs in regards to WR depth and KR/PR. Feed back one way or another would be appreciated. Any UT fans would be great.


Boom bust pick
Some great plays, thanks for the video. Liked the way he caught the ball in all different manners...over shoulder, high point, sliding, diving, etc. Also liked the way he adjusted to the ball and put himself between the ball and the defender. Lastly, loved the way he avoided hits but don't think he will get away with all the cutbacks in the NFL...too much speed and discipline on defense.
As of now, I wouldn't be upset if he made it to # 32 and we selected him.
UT fan here, having suffered through the past couple of seasons, I have to say that Patterson, Hunter and Bray are all NFL worthy prospects. Patterson is electric, he has great hands and is very agile on top of having great speed and good size. I think he will be gone before we pick somewhere in the range of the twenties area.
Great height/speed athlete with tremendous playmaking ability both in the passing game and as a return specialist. Very raw in his route-running and only 1 year of big-time college production before declaring. Mid to late 2nd/3rd round is a safer bet, but he'll probably go in the 1st because of his huge upside.
Great anticipation, judging by the video. Reminds me of Crabtree in the open field, in that he can feel guys behind him and can anticipate where they want him to go (so he can do the opposite). My read is he would be solid in the slot.

I just dont think it makes sense to take another WR that is raw and unrefined in the first round after doing the same thing last year. Now, if he did fall to the 3rd (which he wont) I would go for him. Defense has to be the focus early on.
He's going top 20.

Agreed he's gonna have to learn the balance of to take what they give you and try a score every play.

Can't use last year negative against the next. Think about no Williams, no Ginn, no Ham, possibly no Moss, we're not that deep. At least to start the year for Ham and Williams. Someone like Patterson could make this team electric in the pass game and return game. I see it as two for one. At the very least you traded Jenkins for Patterson this year for arguement sake Ginn isn't playing Sunday. He'd be on the sideline like Jenkins has been all year. Patterson wouldn't be sitting on the sidelines on an important 3rd down in the NFC championship game.

UT fan here also. I'd love to see us pick up Patterson or Hunter. Patterson seems a little more raw than Hunter but he could be a game changer. I'd love to pick up either WR. With Kap at QB, we could use a legit downfield threat.

I'm not saying that I dont want a WR to be drafted. I would look at a WR in the 2nd or 3rd rd. Someone like Quinton Patton or Terrance Williams for example could be available in the 2nd when the Niners select. I just think it makes much more sense to draft someone like Datron Jones, Shariff Floyd, or Jesse Williams if they are there in the first.

I like Hunter more than Patterson. Both are likely to be gone before we pick though.
No thanks, raw as hell, undeveloped route running and questionable hands. Essentially you're redoing the whole Stephen Hill situation once again.

True, but you can use Patterson in a number of different roles as opposed to Jenkins (who looks mostly like a slot WR at this point). Patterson can be a game-changer on special teams, you can run reverses/fly sweeps with him or even use him out of the backfield for zone-read plays. So I don't think he'd be as useless as AJJ in his rookie year, but I also agree that defense is the priority.
