Last year in his senior campaign, Patton had 104 catches for 1,392 yards and 13 touchdowns. He doesn’t provide much of a return threat, notching just one return in his entire senior season. If the Bengals do go receiver in the first-round, look for them to after a player like Tennessee’s Cordarrelle Patterson, who compiled more than 1,000 combined yards rushing and receiving and had 10 total touchdowns.
He set the SEC record with a combined kickoff and punt return average of 27.6, while setting the Tennessee record for all-purpose yards in a season with 1,858. Patterson finished the season with 10 touchdowns (5 receiving, 3 rushing, 1 KO return, and 1 punt return).
If the Bengals go receiver in the first, Patterson should be the only name considered.Want more Bengals news?
