BIO: Starter the past two seasons, finishing with 48/8/5 as a senior and numbers of 63/6/4 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Competitive linebacker best in the box. Fires up the field in run defense, quickly changes direction and pursues with speed from the backside. Displays solid range and the ability to get depth on pass drops. Has an adequate feel in pass coverage.
NEGATIVES: Not decisive or quick, nor is he a difference-maker. Slowed by blocks and gets caught up in the trash. Not efficient and takes a lot of extra steps.
ANALYSIS: A solid athlete with nice speed, Patrick may have a spot at the next level as a nickel linebacker if he smoothes out the rough edges of his game.
