The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

Originally posted by CorvaNinerFan:
I kept asking for them to draft Da'Rick Rogers, who signed as an UDFA w/Bills. But, I'm very happy we have Patton, a brilliant WR with no baggage. And, what a value in the 4th rd. Amazing he lasted that long, but credit to Baalke for staying patient. The 4th rd could be the best of the entire draft, landing Patton and Lattimore. But, Quinton should contribute this season. Look forward to him making an impact.

Might be for the best, lots of stuff has come out about him after the draft, having alligator-armed passes, gone the Titus Young route and deliberately ran the wrong routes or quit on his routes to show his displeasure with the QB, teammates and or the coaching staff. Supposedly he was verbally abusive to other players and coaches alike inside the locker room, he just seems like a colossal jerk.

Patton doesn't appear to be very impressive.

Patton chose #11. Going to be SO weird to see.

I admit, I didn't know s**t about this kid pre-draft. Sorry, but I don't get around to watching too many Louisiana Tech games... But, from the highlights (which are supposed to be his best plays) I somewhat agree with JC. Maybe I'm missing something?

He just looks okay. He doesn't seem that fast, explosive, etc. And, relative to NFL standards, his size is average.

I only watched the Texas A&M game. He had a big day, but I didn't find it as impressive as the numbers thought. It was hard to evaluate his ability to translate to the NFL, because a lot of his catches were just screens and sitting in the zone where he was left wide open because it was such a blowout.

Im not sure Phil Jennings will be very happy that his number wasnt retired.

You don't have to follow the Tech games to know anything about this kid. A quick search for WR stats would have QP in the top-5 of most receiving stats all season, as well as a Biletnikoff award semi-finalist.

If you knew nothing about him pre-draft, it surely was not because he wasn't good enough, it was because you did not do your research.

Well, you are a biased guy judging from your handle. I'm willing to bet that this is a La Tech is a somewhat local team for you? I never claimed to be a draft, or college football guru. For the normal NFL fan in California, Patton was an unknown.

P.S. F**k the Aint's
