Interesting that Zierlein doesn't have the Baylor guy among his top 10 WRs ?

Cordarrelle Patterson has the size and speed that teams salivate over, but I can't shake the feeling that we could be looking at the next Troy Williamson (South Carolina WR who was drafted with 7th overall pick and busted). I absolutely love his big play ability, but he's still raw. Hard to overlook his high-end traits though.
I don't get the Williamson comparisons. Williamson played 3 years in the SEC and did not have the elusiveness of Patterson. Williamson brought straight line speed, while Patterson has the ability to make defenders miss. Not the same player. If Patterson compares to anyone, it's Dez Bryant or Percy Harvin.

Yeah, I don't see any way that Terrance Williams makes it out of the 2nd/3rd round area. I'm guessing LZ has him right outside of the top ten. I wouldn't mind him on the Texans.

Just has some bust potential because he's very raw at this point.

I'd take Tavon Austin as my #1 WR in this class and maybe Keenan Allen over Patterson as I think both should step in and produce immediately while Cordarelle may need some time.
