Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Works hard on and off the field. Good strength throughout, fluid body control, and natural movement kills.
  • Looks and runs like a lanky receiver. High-cut, long and lean frame. Deceptive speed and enough quickness to separate.
  • Good vision to set up blocks and while Patterson isn't quick enough to elude in tight quarters, and take advantage of a defender leaning to spring for additional yardage.
  • Has extremely good, soft, natural hands. Consistently makes the clean catch.
  • Soft, reliable hands center the big target for quarterbacks. Shields the defense and will let the ball into his pads to protect it when about to absorb a big hit over the middle.
  • Patterson is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Is a bit high-hipped and slow to get rolling. Frame limits upside as a blocker.
  • Patterson also lacks suddenness as a route runner, and that is a potential issue at the next level.
  • Patterson seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Patterson doesn’t make the effort to create separation.
