The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

last WR that trained with Kap in the off season was cut and signed by the seahawks

And the other traded

I'm not saying Quinton Patton is Jerry Rice, but Ricardo Lockette is nowhere in his league.
It is kind of funny that all 3 receivers that worked out with Kap are barely hanging on to a job but then you gotta remember who those 3 were. Ricardo Lockette, Chad Hall, and AJ f**king Jenkins :-(

And Jenkins only did it half-assed, showed up late and left early.

I like Patton's eagerness. He's the kind of player that may not be incredibly gifted but makes up for it in determination, a la Rice.

Lol, versatile too (I could have sworn we played him on defense this past preseason).

Anyways, I can't wait to see what Patton can do with a year in the system under his belt. That catch in the Falcons game was a thing of beauty. Game was on the line and he came through for us. Played the ball perfectly, played the db perfectly, and even played the sideline perfectly.

I like Patton, but I see him as strictly a #3. He could improve, though.

I think if he can stay healthy he will be a very solid #2.

Almost all of his highlights came from the slot. I know we ask our WR's to learn every position (X, Y & Z) the first year but I feel he could be potent in the slot on a regular basis. I loved the reverse and quick WR screen. Get him the ball quickly and let him work.

Having him strictly as a slot guy is fine with me. It would be nice to see him become our #2 guy, but I think that might be wishful thinking.

You know, we really need the beef out there esp. in this offense. Little, skinny guys like Manningham, Williams and Jenkins just got abused out there. Patton inside, free and clean off the LOS would be magic IMHO. He also runs a 4.4 so you could line him up outside if you want to take some deep shots. But the big bodies are big for us not only b/c of all the press we face but b/c we need them to block on the edges in both the run and passing game. This is why I think we'll draft Moncrief or Benjamin to be groomed behind Crabtree and Boldin. And the "speed guy" everyone talks about? He's going to have to be a 4.2 guy with dynamic return abilities. Period. He'll be a "package WR" used once in a while on the outside, from the slot, on fly sweeps, reverses, etc. but primarily the return guy.

Patton did line up outside some last season and he got abused. Constantly getting tossed especially against Seattle. Having him try to block against that defense was suicide.

I'm not saying he's he's not going to be a good player, and personally think he's going to surprise a lot of people next season. Non 49ers fans at least. I just think he's entirely way too small to paly outside.

Truth.

Agreed too... He essentially replaces Manningham and Willliams, but not Crabs or Boldiin long term.
