I think people are jumping off the Keenan Allen and onto the Patterson bandwagon just because its something new and and maybe because hes a little faster?
IMO Allen is better in almost every category. How quickly he pulls that ball in and turns it up field, even in tight coverage is rare. The ball just disapesrs once its near him. He plays very physical, runs a large variety of routes, and is much more polished and IMO, much more of a sure thing than Patterson.
Plus we've already seen Allen take on double and triple teams, and beat them often. Thats with maynard throwing to him.
Now I like them both, but I just don't see Patterson as a better player. I think Allen is being really overlooked. When I look at the rest of the talent that realisticsly has a chance to be there at 12, IMO Allen is best player overall.
