    This. Williams needs to get a whole lot more physical to survive the NFL. Is it in his character? Time will tell.

    Hey NUGap. Something I've noticed that I can't get anyone else to confirm or deny they've seen with Patton. A lot of body-catching. The games I've seen, I've noticed him letting the ball fall to him. I didn't see a lot of him extending out and highpointing the ball. I think he likes it in the bread-basket. The sample size I've looked at isn't huge - maybe 3/4 games. Maybe some of it is on the QB too. But you want to see plenty of evidence of him using his full catch radius and I haven't seen much.

    Other than that, I think the kid has everything you're looking for in a physical receiver who can work the sideline and the endzone. But it's definitely a niggle for me.

    With all the games you've analysed, can you confirm, deny or comment??!!

    I know you've approached me before with the same question regarding Patton and the perceived body catching, although I just don't view that as a significant knock, but rather something that prevents him from being an elite prospect.

    I've seen a lot of receivers who had a tendancy to be body catchers in college that remained so in the NFL, and went on to be productive players and have solid careers.... guys who weren't quite as talented as Patton.

    To me it points to the reality that Patton is going to have to create a bit more seperation for himself than a receiver who uses his full catch radius, which Patton is fairly capable of in my estimation given his ability. He's a kid that's absolutely eaten up the best DB's college football can throw at him.... DB's who will be playing in the NFL. DB's who came into the matchup knowing that they had to stop him based on their film study of the previous week when he was torching another top NFL prospect.

    I'd be surprised if Quinton Patton didn't turn out to be a solid receiver at the next level. I don't think I could say that about a lot of these kids.
