Patton's an intriguing guy. He put up some monster numbers at Louisiana Tech, somewhat taking advantage of a weak schedule, but also playing well against top talent.
My opinion, I think Patton fits directly in the Second-tier with a lot of other good receivers, so while he may deserve to go round 2 this year, he might also fall into the 3rd rd (It's a draft where many receivers equal in talent will get drafted at different spots, based on a teams preference of the position).
He never looked the 6' 2" it was said, but he plays big for his size and is not afraid of contact in either blocking or over the middle. He's a very complete player. His strengths are probably his ability to get open in his routes. He has a quickness to everything he does. I think he'll post a solid 40 time, but he won't surprise anybody with his straight speed.
I've read NFL player comparisons would be Brandon Lloyd, which i agree with. As for Tier-1 comparisons, I'd compare him to DeAndre Hopkins, but lacking the catching ability Hopkins has.
