It just seems too conveniant to me thats all. like ted ginn. everyone on here thought ted ginn was the bomb. well, he was.
patterson has more size but what seems more easy in college doesnt quite add up in the pros.
and I dont trust mel kiper for crap. he hates the dolphins. he throws that guy in there for us like "here take this guy, suckers"
I dont see many other teams salivating over this guy. sorry. just not a follower of the masses i guess.
1. Melvin Gordon RB
2. Bernardrick McKinney ILB
3. Steve Nelson CB
4. John Miller G
5. Adrian Amos FS
5. Kenny Bell WR
Top 10 , no order - Winston, Gurley, Cooper, White, Scherff, Beasley, Dupree, Gregory, Williams, and Davis.
I'll admit to liking the Ginn pick. I was desperate for a WR like everyone else and he was a burner. I did expect him to be used to stretched the field for us and we never really got him into that role.
Just like everyone is all gaga for patterson, same thing different year.
So we want to just focus in on one guy named Patterson who scored 5 TD's playing one year for Tennessee and alot of his big open field plays came on special teams and his first ever TD came on an end around. In college that stuff works all day and night. In the pros, not so much. And special teams? The NFL is talking about getting rid of the kickoff!!!!
So just thinking like Philbin here, who wants guys who can run routes, catch the ball, read the defense with the QB, audible at LOS if needed, and know your assignments, that this kid is the guy all day and night.
Not saying that Patterson is a bad player or that he cant eventually be a superstar, but that it aint gonna happen in year one. There is no proof production wise. WR's take a couple of years in most situations. So with this deep draft, with all these resources, we all should pound the table for patterson.
Am really hoping the dolphins trade one of our 2nd rounders to move up and draft B.W
As for who else among draftniks etc are talking him up, I will say that two former scouts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks both have Cordarrelle Patterson going in the top 12, and that's in addition to Mel Kiper who is extremely sensitive to what scouts are telling him when he's doing these lists.
