take your time, don't live too fast
"Much" is such a relative term. If you mean that Patterson carried the ball a third of the time (compared to his receptions) than yes, "much" of what he did was carrying the ball. What I've seen doesn't take into account how many plays Patterson ran at receiver compared to in the backfield, or how many times he was targeted in relation to his receptions.

So what if the guy can also run the ball? You're dogging the guy because he can do more than what is asked of him as a receiver? Patterson does tend to catch the ball with his body, when he has to shield off a defender.
He's the most talented receiver in this entire draft.
