I don't buy it. If Patton fell to the end of the 4th, I could see TJ Jones winding up going as far back as the late 5th round. Its possible he turns some heads in the offseason, but I see him as likely 4th to late 5th rounder. In that range, I think he's very good value and a very skilled receiver who'll get overlooked because he's not very big, not very fast but he makes plays and has done well with a lousy QB situation.
I think for a wide receiver, hands, coordination, agility and route running trump size and speed as considerations. Donte Moncrief is one of my favorite receivers in this draft, he's got size and speed, he's limited as a route runner though and needs to improve there. However he's also got tremendous hands,rarely drops a pass and he has tremendous ability to create separation from defensive backs. I feel that his route running issues can be coached up, however a guy with poor hands and limited awareness is going to have a tremendous amount of improvement to make to be a serviceable receiver.
Nothing I've seen from Washington makes me go "wow", he's got the ability to be a great pro receiver or even an average one. I need something more beyond "he's tall and hella fast."
