I LOVE how he catches with hands and not body Like Crabs. I hope him and Crabs become the one two punch we need.

I told you straight up I was biased. I don't know why you keep making this up.
Don't worry about this dude. Most of us here appreciate your insight. Thanks for stopping by to share your knowledge!

My bad man, misread your statment. I don't keep making this up though. I've said it once.

Don't understand the logic behind people who haven't ever watched a guy play, slam him anyways and then slam anyone who actually HAS seen him play.........its the way of the Webzone I guess.

Its like all the people who went buckwild in the Aldon Smith thread, freaking out because they hadn't seen him play and because he had his "hands on his hips" far too often. If I'm at a point where I have to resort to Youtube video's to define someone, I'll just say..."well, I guess Baalke knows what he's doing."

Man, I am giving a casual observation on an internet forum. I am not an expert and don't claim to be like others on this site. I know what you mean and I don't like that either. I think you are taking my loose comment way too seriously.

Jesus, you guys are taking this way too seriously. I hope the guy is right, and I am cheering for Patton. I just said, and he confirmed, that he is biased. Is that okay?

I AM NOT SAYING I KNOW MORE THAN BAALKE. I AM NOT SAYING THE SKY IS FALLING

is that better Phoenix? can you get off my nuts now? thanks

There's a guy on here, who came over to register, to let people know about Patton, someone who actually has watched him play regularly and you got all pissy about it.

There have been LSU fans and South Carolina fans who have come on here in recent days and I always enjoy what they have to say about guys like Reid and Lattimore, biased or not, its more information than you'll derive from a generic Waltersfootball scouting report or a Youtube video. Not sure why you flipped out like that or why you continue to flip out. Need to go decaf bro.

What were the knocks on him? Why'd he fall? I really like the pick, but i honestly don't know much about him.
Here's something fun and interesting for ya. One of our grads made a poster for "The General"

Not big, not really fast, played against a lower level of competition.


That said, he's a lot like the Colts receivers of the past decade. Reggie Wayne/Pierre Garcon......not a really big guy, quick but not super fast, good reliable hands, good route runner, just a very effective, talented receiver.
Good article on Patton from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

He's definitely got some of that Chad Johnson/Richard Sherman type exuberance in him.

Quinton Patton couldn't help himself. He never can. When Louisiana Tech took the field for warm-ups at Illinois last fall, Patton spotted a group of recruits. They looked so hopeful, so impressionable, so excited to enroll at Illinois. For Patton, they were fresh meat. The wide receiver trotted by and did what he does best. Talk.

"Hey," he told them, "I wouldn't commit here after this game."

The recruits were in shock initially and then laughed. Patton can't remember if any players or coaches from Illinois heard him. Heck, "I really didn't care," he said. Such digs have one purpose - to jack up Patton himself. In a 52-24 win, he torched Illinois for 164 yards on six receptions with two scores.

"That's when you really have to back it up," Patton said. "When you say something like that, you really have to back it up."

This is life in Quinton Patton's world. Have fun, talk smack, back it up. Now, NFL teams are trying to crack the code. He's this spring's most eccentric, yet magnetic wide receiver. At the NFL scouting combine, Patton emphatically declared himself the best wide receiver in the draft. In case you're wondering, his opinion hasn't changed.

Is it confidence? Is it arrogance? Patton rides the fine line, embraces that fine line. He's 6 foot, 205 pounds of blatant bravado. Unburdened by political correctness, he wants to be the next Chad Johnson. Not Chad Ochocinco, he assures. Chad Johnson.

In his prime - talking and dancing and producing - Johnson's bark had bite.

"I loved his whole demeanor, how he carried himself into the game, everything," Patton said. "He talked. But he backed it up at the same time. For a 10-year span, he was one of the best receivers in the game. Week in and week out, he'd get it done. He'd talk and get it done.

"I talk a little bit. Sometimes more than I need to. But at the end of the day, I shut up and get it done."

So who is Quinton Patton? He's a guy who loves baking cookies and brownies at any hour. Cooking - not football - is how to win a woman's heart, he says. Patton is still mad at his roommate for eating his cookies in the middle of the night. He's a guy who loves the TV show, "24." Patton is enamored by Jack Bauer's ability to escape any jam. "I don't know how," Patton said, "but he always gets out!"

And he's a guy who talks, and talks.

When Rob Likens first met Patton, he thought the receiver took it too far. The Louisiana Tech assistant head coach / wide receivers coach, who is now at California, had the same, mystifying first impression teammates did.

Dude, shut up.

"This guy hadn't done anything and he's coming in here, talking and all that," Likens said. "When I spent every day with him, he's like that every second he's awake. He's just energetic. He's like that in the lunchroom, he's like that everywhere."

Patton's future roommate felt the same way. Wide receiver Myles White is from Livonia, Mich. Up north, people are more laidback, reserved, he says. White wasn't used to an unapologetic swagger. Patton was loud, obnoxious. White would often ask, "Why are you yelling for no reason?"

"At first, I said 'He talks too much,' " White said. "After you get to know him, you see it's his personality. Not just a show."

In two years at the school, Patton was a highlight factory. He finished with 183 receptions for 2,594 yards and 24 touchdowns. A breakout week at the Senior Bowl proved Patton could succeed against higher competition. Now, he projects as a second-round pick.

Patton did talk to the Green Bay Packers at the Senior Bowl and the combine. The Seattle Seahawks, meanwhile, have shown serious interest since last year. All teams are doing their homework. Likens fielded the same questions repeatedly.

You may like him. You may not. Likens gets it. But the coach always tells teams that if you spend time with Patton, they'll understand it's not arrogance.

"Quinton does a lot of talking. He talks a lot," Likens said. "And if you don't like him talking, just walk up to him and say, 'Quinton, shut up!' He's always going to talk but it's not in negativity. It's not arrogance. It's a really good confidence."

Patton describes himself as "fun," as "entertaining," as someone who's "not going to give out, give in, give up, never." Again, Patton declared himself the best wide receiver in the draft.

Trash talking? Likens said Patton "talks trash going through the McDonalds drive-through." When Patton first transferred to Louisiana Tech from Coffeyville Community College (Kan.), defensive players couldn't stand him. Now, players are calling Likens, saying they miss Patton's energy. He was a shot of 5-hour ENERGY for the entire team, daily.

Not that Likens' blood didn't boil. One practice, the coach was high-strung, on edge, about to lose it. Patton realized this and pounced.

Discreetly, Patton threw a football at his coach's back and pretended somebody else did it.

"He was joking around but I got really pissed," Likens said. "I got mad at him. He knew it and was just joking around. He still thinks it's really funny."

He does. When that story comes up, Patton laughs an evil-genius laugh.

During games, he feeds off the cornerback. As soon as the corner talks, he talks. That was the case against Texas A&M. Patton won't repeat what he said - it's not suitable for the public. Whatever he said, it worked. Patton caught 21 passes for 233 yards with four touchdowns in a 59-57 loss.

When Louisiana Tech trailed by 27 points, Likens remembers Patton patrolling the sideline.

"He's just on the sideline smiling," Likens said. "He's saying, 'It's no problem guys. I'm fixing to go off. Everybody stay in it.' And he did."

Added White, "It's definitely not an arrogance. 'Q' is not a selfish person at all. It's just his personality. He's a funny dude. A clown, really."

It's on Patton to manage the fine line. From afar, he admired the Chad Johnson-turned-Ochocinco that kept a list of cornerbacks on his locker, checking off names one by one, the player who proposed to cheerleaders, putted footballs with pylons and always backed it up.

"He made the game fun and exciting," Patton said. "With his game, it didn't matter what was going on in the world. That was his sanctuary. That's where he could be himself. That's how I feel on the field."

Patton knows there are limits, saying Johnson "took it overboard" as Ochocinco. The act got old. To this day, Likens still plants the seed in Patton's head. He wants "Q" to be "Q." But in the pros, don't push it.

Maybe some NFL teams don't trust Patton with this. Some will be wary, reluctant to bring a free spirit into the locker room. Patton isn't worried. He realizes his style won't make everyone happy.

And that's fine by him.

Said Patton, "I'm going to be me regardless."
