MAC Ht., Wt.: 5'11, 181 40 Time: 4.59 Grade: 3.08
BIO: All-conference selection in ‘03 after posting 57/0/12. Second team All-MAC choice after his junior and sophomore campaigns totaling 63/3/13 and 40/4/13, respectively.
POSITIVES: Athletic corner that's flashed cover skills the past three seasons. Fluid transitioning to run with opponents, tracks the deep ball then gets vertical to break up the pass. Possesses a nice break on the pass, times defenses well and has above-average ball skills.
NEGATIVES: Slow turning back to the pass and face guard opponents. Not always willing to mix it up or fly around the ball. Prefers to side-shuffle rather pedal off the line.
ANALYSIS: Better facing the quarterback, Patton has potential as a zone cornerback or free safety at the next level. Must turn his flashes of skill into consistent play on the field.
