The two guys from Tennessee are the highest ceiling WR's I see in this draft. Patterson is simply the most explosive player in the entire draft at any position for my eyes. He has the size, strength, build and determination to beat press coverage coupled with very good speed and phenomenal burst to create separation. His RAC ability is probably the best in the class. He has natural hands and good technique as a catcher, but you can tell he hasn't been coached at it as intensively for very long. Patterson is simply tailor made for the WCO. Bailey seems like one of many good small WR's.
Justin Hunter is an ideal fit in any offense, but he needs more strength, health and reps to develop into a Randy Moss/AJ Green style of WR. He's the best red zone threat WR in this draft, has deep speed, good RAC (despite being overshadowed by Patterson), willing and capable downfield blocker. But, he isn't strong enough and doesn't hold onto the ball in traffic well enough yet.
Just want to say, been on cbssports.com nfldraftscout and there mock they have two experts mocking together, one has us taking Allen, the other has us taking Patterson. Not until Minnesota's pick at #23 do they reverse the picks. Which just makes me think these guys are overranked for sucker teams like us or why draft these guys if no one else might not want? Lets let the WR draft market get stuffed up at 43.
This is the year we can take a chance to be great. Does Ireland dare though?
Top 10 , no order - Winston, Gurley, Cooper, White, Scherff, Beasley, Dupree, Gregory, Williams, and Davis.
I want Wallace and draft Hopkins rd 1. I doubt Patterson would have been a starter at Clemson this past season. Now go ahead and flame away on that.
If we could bump back from 12 to....say 20 or so, and pick up an extra pick in late RD2.....
Then we could get Bailey at 20, and use 2c) on Honey Badger (he will fly off the board once RD3 starts, my opinion).
That, together with Jennings or Wallace or Bowe in FA means:
Jennings/Wallace/Bowe.......Bailey......Honey Badger. All in Dolphins uniform, after only using up our #12 pick.
Then we would STILL have 2 other picks in RD2, and 2 more picks in RD3.
Wow, I would take that any day of the week.
either patterson or terrance williams 4.4 speed 6'2 200 pounds.
"Five yards is my life!" - Don Shula to a referee who had told Shula to quit arguing, that the penalty he just called was only five yards
if we get jennings, i'll bet any amount of money we dont get a wr at 12. I Just feel too much hype going on with these guys and the world right now has us locked into them. too many other wr's with good talent out there.
