I'm tempted to dig up all of the threads around here about Demaryius Thomas and how raw he was as a prospect... same with Torrey Smith, Percy Harvin, and Julio Jones. Meanwhile talking about how 'polished' Michael Floyd and Brian Robiskie were.
Cordarrelle Patterson is nowhere near as raw as some people think. However, I do understand how someone might have an issue with him with the 12th overall pick, because that's the stance I've had from the beginning.. and I had him as the top WR in the draft before anybody that I know of.
Having an issue with him at #12 is one thing, but to turn around and insinuate that he isn't the top WR prospect in this class, or to make a case for Keenan Allen that high is full of holes... holes they don't even know about.
