IF, only given these two options...
With the talk that we may possibly be interested in trading up to the top 15 to draft Tavon Austin, I wonder if there is any interest in Cordarelle Patterson. Patterson seems to be falling down draft boards a little bit, probably due to being a raw WR with only one year of D1 experience.
We don't have to give up nearly as much if we only trade up to picks #20-25 and get Patterson. Hell, he might even fall to #31, kind of like how Stephen Hill was thought to go first round last year but lasted into the second round.
They both can return, play wide receiver, and play running back. Austin is more NFL ready but he'll cost more for us to trade up. However, Patterson has the potential to be a red zone threat, while Austin not so much.
What say you?
