Newsome's lyin'! Are their top two WRs really Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones (I'm trying to recall without cheating)? Hard to believe they didn't want to address WR before the 7th round. You think it's an accident we took Patton before Lattimore?

IdahoNiner may have a point. Mellette was a Zone favorite around here as a height/weight/speed guy from a tiny school. Could become a nice player.

Yea, i wasnt trying to say one ay or the other if they wanted Patton. But simply that i think Mellette will be a good WR for them. Alot of good WR's fell way farther than they should have. Mellette is one of them. I think he fits nicely with Flaccos skillset as a passer.

I really don't no much about this kid, I was mainly busy watching the tightends, dline, Lb's and saftey's outside of austin i didn't even check out the wr's. But zone seems to love this kid and so does Trent so hope he does well. Looking at his stats he's not a blazer but he's solid all around.

Speed guy? Mellette is very similar to Patton, slightly slower, bigger in size but not as good with YAC though. Has the same issues with lacking deep downfield speed.

Mellette doesnt have really deep downfeild speed, correct, but he is More Physical than Patton IMO. Although patton is a much more refined route runner. I have said it numerous times, But if Mellette end up making it in the NFL he could be a TO clone. He certainly has enough speed, just like Patton, but not track speed.

I'm still excited about Jenkins, if you saw the kind of player he was at Illinois, that talent just doesn't vanish, I'm chalking up last year to him not being utilized early on and not having prepared himself properly to step in late. If he can step up and perform this year the way he's capable of, people will give him a pass on his rookie season. Ultimately he can become this team's very badly needed deep threat. The talent is there, the desire portion, that's up to AJ Jenkins.


Remember Crabtree his rookie year? How many passes did he slap into the air to get picked off? There is an adjustment period in the NFL for WR's
Lol

He has a big personality.

I'm telling you, this is isn't AJ Jenkins who's highly talented but kind of blah and milquetoast. Patton's fired up all the time, at La Tech he was the guy that was first in the building and the last to leave regularly. Anyone who thinks he's going to come in with a big head hasn't been paying attention to him. If anything, being drafted late in the 4th put a big-ass chip on his shoulder.

If Jerry Rice invites Patton to go run hills with him, Patton would very damn well take him up on it.


""The fact that he would buy his own ticket, fly out here, just speaks volumes about him," Harbaugh said of Patton, a Louisiana Tech product. "To be honest with you, he reminds me of me. That's something I would have done. I love it."




I may be proven wrong but I've been saying for a long time that Patton is a beast of an entirely different nature, I have believed and fully still believe that he's got true #1 WR potential in the NFL, not because of amazing physical traits like a Cordarelle Patterson, but because he'll simply refuse to let anyone else outwork him and will maximize every last drop of talent and ability he has.

"I feel like (Quinton Patton) from Louisiana Tech is the best receiver I've played against since I've been here. I've gone against some good ones in the SEC, too, but he's probably the most complete."

Maybe this one will train with Jerry Rice.

Nice completely opposite of Aj Jenkins I like his attitude so far.
