Are we willing to use a 1st round pick on a player that might not see many snaps at all at the WR position in his 1st year? I dunno, man.
That's not all he's a "stickler" on. Blocking is another skill he wants in a WR. That's how Walter stuck around so long and I think it's one of the reasons Martin and Posey didn't see the field as much earlier in the season. Is Patterson known for being a good blocker?

I guess I'm looking at this WR selection thing differently than most on this MB. Most here seem to want a potential #1 to develop and replace Johnson in the next few years. I don't see that WR anywhere in this draft. Patterson may be close on the physical end and with his "potential." But, there are 2 reasons I don't think it will happen; one is, he'll be long gone by the time we pick at #27, and two is, with the loss of Walter and possibly Posey (for the year), they need a #2 WR that will start day 1. Are Patterson or Hunter, with all their "upside", potential, and question marks that guy? My guess is no. I think the Texans will be looking at either Allen or Hopkins at #27 if either are still there. Neither has the "upside" that Patterson or Hunter do, but both are way more NFL ready (route running, blocking, hands, etc..) and should be solid #2 WR's for years to come.
