A big hell no
"It isn't necessary to see a good tackle. You can hear it."
Patterson has to much bust potential, at a positon we have solid players and depth across the board.. He reminds me of Darrius Heyward Bey, who i knew would be a bust.. I'm just not sold on the guy, nor do we need a WR..
I just want to be clear I am not suggesting the Giants select Patterson, I am just asking if he is available does JR pull the trigger on him. I don't see the Giants taking OL/LB in the first at all. So that leaves DL/DB/WR with that pick, I am curious to see where they go. I know a lot of people want to see Ogletree but the guy is a sideline too sideline type guy. I think he is vulnerable when you run power right at him.
If he thinks highly of him, yeah. I still believe Reese will go BPA. Obviously he will weigh the OL or DL heavier, but if he sees Patterson as a top 5 pick this year and he falls to 19, and no DL or OL players he likes are left, Id say he would be all over him.
Nicks? Oft injured. Cruz? May not be able to hold onto him. Randle? Jernigan? Barden?
IMO, Patterson is the going to be a very good #1 WR in the NFL. He was actually the WR I liked during the year when everyone else was talking about that kid from Cal Clemson and USC. Also, like Tavarres King from Georgia and Mark Harrison from Rutgers late.

3-Louchiez Purifoy CB Florida / Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers
