Yeah, I think the combine meetings have a lot of smokescreen action. They are always listed officially, whereas a team scout meeting with a player at an all-star game often goes unreported and is safer.
Patton does make sense in terms of what he can do physically, but I don't like him as much as most people seem to. He might be my 15th favorite WR this year. I don't hate him or anything, but I've watched his stuff and not seeing what the 2nd round hype is all about. In the 6th round, sure, sign me up. Much earlier than that would be a mistake with the draft being so loaded this year, IMO.
