Let me just say that Patton is probably my favorite player on the 49ers right now (yes, even more than LaMike) but it's impossible to say that he's obviously better than KW after two freakin' preseason games.
He's obviously better than Kyle Williams, I don't have the slightest doubt about that whatsoever. Williams is a nice guy in the slot and a decent deep threat but he should never be anything more than a #4 WR on a quality NFL receiving corps.
How is it so obvious lol? Patton has only played in two meaningless games and missed most of his first training camp. It's far from obvious. Obvious shouldn't even mentioned in this debate.
Again, I hate arguing against Patton because I think he's going to be great. But come on, man. KW has had the most experience with Kaep out of all the receivers in the group ATM, so he deserves to get at least the first shot at the No. 2 or slot receiver at the start of the season, barring he's healthy.
And I don't know when this was updated or how seriously to consider it, but looks like KW is the No. 2 receiver: http://www.49ers.com/team/depth-chart.html
