Bray never had a good game against the top teams in the SEC, thus the inconsistency I was talking about.
He got rattled and made poor decision that led to turnovers or he would take too many dump-offs unecessarily, or he would get all happy-feet.
Hunter had 17 catches to Patterson's 8 in that 4 game span . Receiving is as much an art as it is about 40 yd dashes . Patterson is a great raw athlete but is he a polished WR and can he ever be ?
You are much better off taking a WR in the 2nd than in the 1st in this draft .
For the record , Hopkins had 26 catches in two games vs Auburn and LSU .
