Like Patterson or not, I cant see philbin signing off on a guy who catches with his body. Even if you look at the last two WRs we drafted, the one thing that stood out is they catch with there hands and lock the ball up quickly.
Catching is a big part for philbins mold for WRs, even jordy Nelson couldn't get on the field for awhile because he was dropping it in practice.
IMO that will be deciding factor in not drafting Patterson. Especially with the amount of timing patters along the way tannehill really rips it, ball skills are incredibly important in this offense.
