Quinton Patton Comparables

6012781091_a45fc9bc1d_b

CBS’ NFL Draft Scout has La Tech WR Quinton Patton as a projected 2nd round pick, which strikes me as being rich for a wide receiver that has a skillset that doesn’t seem to be in short demand.  Patton is about average size for a WR, close to average speed, and he has college production that looks like the college production of a lot of guys who play in relatively high powered offenses against weak competition.  To put that another way: Is there are good reason to use a 2nd round pick on a guy like Quinton Patton when they seem to come along on a pretty regular basis?

Below is a table which shows both Patton’s measurables along with final season of college production, as well as the same numbers for about 15 guys with similar resumes.  I think one way to look at the draft is that you should be trying to acquire what you shouldn’t be able to acquire with that pick.  You should literally be looking around going “How is this guy still on the draft board?”  When a player has a resume like about a dozen other guys from the recent past, and when the best WRs in that list of comparables are James Jones and Deion Branch, it’s probably reasonable to let another team burn a 2nd round pick on that guy.
