    IF we pick a receiver in the first round at #10 i'd rather have Tavon Austin over Patterson.

    Austin has played all four years in college has explosive kick/punt returner skills and he had one hundred catches in his junior year and another hundred catches in his senior year.

    Also, Patterson's skillset is no where similar to Moss' what so ever outside of their athleticism. Randy Moss was a deep threat with amazing leaping ability who could go up and catch the ball at the highest point with his hands. Even when double covered he could still go up and grab the ball (aka Mossing); Patterson has never shown this leaping ability in his game tape.

    What Patterson does do well is run with the ball after the catch. He is probably the most explosive open field runner I've seen in a while at the NCAA level. Patterson has amazing vision as a ball carrier and kick return that combines with his athleticism and makes him a dynamic weapon. However he will struggle getting open at an NFL level because of his lack luster route running. (Sidenote: To the person who said Terrell Owens was a bad route runner is incorrect. TO may not have been Jerry Rice or Wes Welker but he was far from a poor route runner.) Patterson is closer to Percy Harvin then Randy Moss and would be best utilized pn reverses, screens, and kickoffs until he develops the ability to cut over the middle more consistently.

    Personally, I have DeAndre Hopkins, Justin Hunter, and Robert Woods as better receivers on my board and Quinton Patton and Aaron Dobson being good enough that I don't see a reason to risk taking a project at 10th overall
