I like his combination of size (6’3” and 220 pounds) and speed (4.40 in the 40). He's landing in a good situation - Darren McFadden can't stay healthy, and Jennings & Jones bring nothing to the table.

I think Stepfan Taylor is one of the most underrated rookies in this class. He can play on all three downs, and Arizona's running back job will be up for grabs in training camp. Ryan Williams hasn't done anything to earn the starting nod outright and can't stay on the field.

I won't hold up the draft, but if anyone was looking to trade for the second of my two picks, I am open to offers. ;-D

I had to check & double check several times, and still couldn't believe my eyes that Patton was available at the end of the third round. I owned him in a college fantasy league last year and am very familiar with his talents...and now he's almost a lock to start across from Crabtree. With all due respect, I think Patton was a much better prospect than either of the Buffalo WRs (besides Woods) which were drafted previous.

I was praying Patton was gonna go unnoticed. He should of been taken much higher. I debated him during my Bailey pick.

Don't disagree about Patton's desirability, but he's been going rather late in the league's I've seen. Just needed to go a bit further.

SFO WR Michael Crabtree reportedly tore his Achilles in practice and his status for the 2013 season is apparently in doubt.

The bidding for WR Quinton Patten shall start with two 2014 first round picks...

He was kinda slow at the combine, I kinda prefer Ellington. :-?
