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.
Outside of AJ the available WR options at the start of the season are:
Martin: a slot receiver
LeStar jean: hasn't shown enough in 2 years.
Jeff Maehl: bounced between practice squad and roster.
Some random FA WR the Texans will sign after the draft.
Based on that, Patterson WOULD start from Day 1 as WR #2. Posey is injured and Patterson is better than Jean or Maehl or the unnamed FA WR. They don't need Patterson to be a superstar in year 1, they just need him to catch around 40 balls and get a few touchdowns. He can certainly do that.
