Quinton Patton just strikes me as the type of guy who doesn't have any physical traits that jump out at you (size, speed, athleticism) but manages to out-produce many of the big name first round picks who supposedly have a high ceiling. He just has more heart and determination and is a better pure football player. Basically the opposite of Jenkins. I'm confident that he will find success in this league.
You mean a good football player, rather than a good track athlete?
Since we're playing the game of football, it just seems kind of obvious to me that we would want good football players, just like if we were a track team, we would want good track athletes.
But if we ever need to put a track team together, we should have Jenkins and Lockettes numbers on speed dial. Oh yeah, and Lawrence Okoye too.
