Still can't believe some of the players picked before Patton. Guy was a clear 2nd round talent who played big against big competition. He was sitting on my "best available list" through the entire 3rd and 4th rounds.. How he made it to the end of the 4th I don't know, but it was such a gift and blessing for us to get him.
I have to wonder if teams put too much stock into his lower-than-usual number of bench reps (we all know that outside of the extremes, # of reps typically means next to nothing in terms of talent and potential for success at the next level).
I understand it's early still, but the early times are the times to be excited. When you got a potential steal, a player that should've gone in the 2nd round (a round where you are often times finding a starter and/or major contributor), you have every reason to be excited and raise expectations a little.
