As for Lee, he is WAY better than Patton or a hurt Manningham. The only WR I would take over him in the draft would be Sammy Watkins
This is my issue with Lee. He's a prototypical #1 WR type but how will he handle press coverage at the NFL level? He's struggled with it thus far in college, a lot more than guys like Evans, Watkins, Moncrief and Matthews.
"Separation Skills Excellent flexibility and fluidity as a route runner. Displays rare ability to get out of breaks without losing momentum. Possesses elite acceleration out cuts to create separation. Strong feel working against zone coverage to weave through traffic and find soft spots. Only weakness is lack of strength getting off press coverage
, and he has room for improvement in terms of savvy."
I also don't know that he's WAY better than Patton, and neither do you since Patton really hasn't had a chance to play.
