I'm not seeing how Rogers had his best peformances when it mattered most. His best games in 2011 (that's all I'm looking at) came against Buffalo and Middle Tennessee. Rogers numbers vs. LSU, Bama, and Florida were pedestrian. Looking at this draft class, there are too many WRs who were just as productive, and just as athletic, that haven't busted piss tests. There are probably 10 WRs that should be drafted ahead of Rogers, which would put him somewhere in the 3rd round (at best).
LSU: 3 for 63 yards; Georgia: 5 for 71; Florida 5 for 62; Arkansas 5 for 106; Vanderbilt 10 for 116; Alabama 2 for 32.
Patterson in 2012: Florida 8 for 75; Georgia 2 for 31; Vanderbilt 3 for 52; Kentucky 4 for 88; did not play Arkansas or LSU; Alabama 1 for 25
Keep in mind that Rogers played for Tech while Patterson played for Vols. with Tyler Bray. maybe it's Patterson who should be drafted in 3rd at best.
