School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-9.5, 191
40 Time:
4.59

BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter used at both cornerback and safety. Senior totals included 54/4/3 after 50 tackles as a junior.

POSITIVES: Patterson is a competitive defensive back who plays assignment football. His size/speed numbers will push him into the very late stages of the draft, yet he has enough ability to find a home on a roster as an eighth defensive back.

NEGATIVES: Struggles defending large receivers. Small for safety and slow for cornerback.

ANALYSIS: Underrated defensive back who displays a variety of skill in the secondary. Plays heads-up football, aggressive in run defense, and very quick up the field to stop ball carriers. Fluid changing direction and possesses better-than-average ball skills.

PROJECTION: FA
