Get a thread going to put those rumors up.

Quote:
Scouts from 10 different teams have reportedly expressed reservations regarding Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson's mental acuity.
It's a fancy way of saying the scouts don't think Patterson is smart. He reportedly wasn't impressive during team interviews at the Combine and scored an 11 on the 50-question Wonderlic test. "Mentally, it's going to be a project," one personnel man told the Journal-Sentinel. "Running routes, he doesn't know how to do any of that stuff. You may have to keep it simple for him, but this is football. It's not building a super glider or anything."

Funny thing he is the sort of player the Steelers would have drafted. True Jr, tested really well an had a very productive college career

Antonio brown had similar issue. Not a big deal.

Possible 1st round pick vs 6th round pick. Perhaps there is a big deal.

It will just push him down to the 2nd round. Like I have said all along his talent merits.

That's a bad comparison. Antonio Brown never really got the media attention that C. Patterson get now and you forgot that there's a size difference. If we were to say C. Patterson now might drop to end of 1st round or borderline 2nd round then maybe yeah but I'm just comparing the situation not value.

I've heard the same as of late with him, so I won't be shocked if he drops. Probably too high to draft a "gadget" guy, I guess, but between the reverses, bubble screens, and return game capability, he'd be an awesome weapon.
