    Bob McGinn: Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson has plenty of talent and question marks

    Take Patterson and Austin off the Texan's Draft Board. And slide Hunter way down.

    I read that Harvin got a 12, and Hakeem Nicks got an 11.

    I wish they'd have posted Hopkins' Wonderlic. Not concerned about it, but curious.

    Reading between the lines, Patterson gets hammered in the piece imo: Austin scored horribly, but he'll "get it" because he "cares deeply about it".

    But then the personnel men rank him highest? Some bullshatting going on somewhere.

    Randy Moss and Marvin Harrison got 12, Reggie Wayne scored 13, and Andre Johnson scored 14.

    Marino, Bradshaw, and McNabb scored 15 as QBs.

    13+ for a WR doesn't bother me. 10-12 is iffy. <10 is "Danger, Will Robinson!"

    I think Kubes prefers smarter guys.

    Donald Lee had a 7 and he played some 7-9 years in the NFL.
    Bennie Jopru's 36 couldn't save him from freak accidents. :toropalm:

    My take away was Tavon stays same, Patterson drops, and perhaps Hunter rises past him.

    Hunter is most often referred to as having big upside lately, in what I'm reading/hearing.

    I am thinking that speed and hands are what teams look at more than the test. I mean lets face it when Austin is going over the middle and is about to make a catch I seriously doubt P.Willis is going to ask him a math question.

    In the first 8 games, Patterson got 16 carries.
    In the last four games, he got 9.
    That's 0.25 carry per game more than his average.

    I wonder what Wonderlic score that "director" got on his test. LOL

    In the first 8 games, Patterson caught 27 passes for 366 yards.

    In the last 4 games, he caught 19 for 412 yards (prorated to 38 and 814 yards - for 8 games.) The 412 yards in 4 games surpassed the 366 yards in the first 8 games.

    If you want to take out 3 games against patsies, Patterson caught 22 for 275 yards in the first six; he caught 10 for 193 yards in his last three games (prorated to 20 and 386 yards.)

    I think that particular director has been smoking weed or something, LOL!

    I just finished rewatching the first quarter of their tenth game of the season (Missouri), and Patterson was doing everything from returning KOs, running several deep routes, running for a TD, and even completing a pass to Hunter.

    All that in one quarter, LOL!

    P.S. - I still hate Tyler Bray. Man, if only he has Keenum's brain.

    Yeah, but the problem is that if you've got an offense where the WR has to make reads and alter his route on the defense, he's got to be smart enough to read the defense. At least a little.

    It's like with the Cowboys last year where Dez Bryant reads one defense and Romo reads another and Romo throws a pick-six because they weren't on the same page. If I've got a guy who's extremely talented but dumb as rocks and a guy who's somewhat talented but smart as hell and I've got a complicated offense, I'm drafting the smarter guy.

    If the score is anything to go by, I have a creeping suspicion that Keenan Allen and Robert Woods are sitting at the top of our WR list.

    If Allen goes early, I bet we trade back into early 2nd, nab Woods, and get an extra 3rd or something.

    I'll take Marino, Bradshaw, and Jim Kelly any day over Romo's 37, and especially Gabbert's 42, LOL!
