As a Louisiana Tech fan who had the privilege to watch this amazing player play for the last 2 years, let me just say, you guys got a steal.
He was by far the most electric, talented, and beloved player on the team. Not only is he a great receiver, but he is smart and an all-around great guy.

You cant understand one word he's saying in his conference call lol... Him and Boobie are gonna be good friends
I can assure you that was due to the crappy audio quality of the cell phone call, not his speaking. He has a little south in his voice, but he does not sound like a moron, I can guarantee.

49ers didn't just acquire a good receiver, they got a great character guy, someone who was active in the community, worked with charities, the guy who is the first one to show up at the team facility and the last one to leave, this is a hell of a get for the 49ers.
2 years ago, when we played in the Poinsettia bowl against TCU, one of the banquets before the game was a banquet that had several kids from the Make-A-Wish foundation in attendance. The players were presented with their usual bowl "swag". One such item was a $300 gift card to Best buy and a custom watch. Patton, along with a few other Tech players, GAVE their gift card and watch to the kids from the foundation. Patton keeps in touch with that kid to this day.
Keep in mind, all of his stats, were from a 2-yr career in Div-1A ball. His first 2 years were at a Community College.
All-in-all, you guys got a great athlete, competitor, and high-character individual for your team. Wish he would have gone to my Saints, but I'm happy he went to you guys instead of a place with a sucky QB. Kaep will allow him to shine.
Here's a video of him miked up at the Senior bowl practices. Kid's a ham.
