Explain it, don't just state it.
Patterson is a YAC monster. Uses quick hips and explosiveness ala Harvin. Can be used on reverses, screens, slot or wide like Harvin.
Like Bowe as in YAC beast. Give him the ball and watch him work. However, is inconsistent with his hands.
Escobar is a mimic of Keller. WR in TE body. Not elite athleticism, or exceptionally fast. Not a blocker. Unproven hands.
^^ what i've been saying for 2 months.Source says Patterson might drop
The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein cited an NFL source who told him Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson might fall out of the first-round.
Zierlein added that Patterson has done very poorly in interviews. The same doubts have been reported numerous times. Patterson only spent one year at the FBS level and reportedly struggled in the classroom, but his natural running ability needs to be taken advantage of, if only on quick patterns or simple packages.
CP is an elite playmaker with the ball. He's a bigger less polished Austin.
Hill is a big, strong, fast athlete. No WR skills. Looked weird catching the ball.
CP is a big, fast, elusive football player. Has tremendous vision with the ball, can beat press coverage. Good hands at the line, and he has pure hands, something Hill never had. The guy is a football player. Catches ball at highest point. Will take him time to develop, but he'll be a playmaker.
His routes need work, but so do most WR's coming out of college. KA is a polished route runner. He also got caught by LB's at Cal. It's pick your poison.
Also, CP has the best lateral agility that I've ever seen in CFB at WR. Basically a taller Reggie Bush.
Tavon Harvin (forget the size difference)
I like the harvin/tavon comparison, maybe desean Jackson? I think dee looks more like gillmore than Claiborne too
