I think Rey's point was that with all of Patterson's talent our coaches should be good enough to teach him how to run his routes correctly.
Maybe so, but how long are we willing to wait if it is a coachable problem? We all know how anal Kubiak is when it comes to his offense. Players like Foster, Brandon Brooks, Posey, etc never even see the field offensively until they learn and run the offense the way he wants it. Being a 1st rounder, I'd expect them contributing from day 1.
Who knows who's right? It's a crapshoot, but I'd think my chances would be better going defense in the 1st.
