I liked Clay during the 2011 draft process; he was athletic & versatile, experienced in the running, blocking & receiving games, and durable...I preferred him to the bigger, but plodding & one-dimentional Lee Smith at 159...I think he could've helped us over the years...
Agreed. Very versatile chess piece. He’s one of those dudes that was always injured, but managed to fight through them and play. Definitely could’ve used him.

Patten was pretty darn fast. Supposedly he's run a 4.27 40 (Bendetson: Saints alive, Patten marches on), but that for sure has to be hand timed. At one point he had the Pats WR 20yd sprint record (from ctpatsfann77's post of a DougKyed tweet of BumTheorist - note that Antwan Harris was faster).

Loved his game against Indy where he had a TD throw, catch, and run.

Edit: The catch from the Triple Play game:
Patten wasn't a burner. Not in the Odell Beckham, Johnathan Ross, Tyreek Hill mold. One of the things that was mentioned about Branch, Brown, and Patten is that they were so similar in their abilities that they were interchangeable.

And I wasn't taking a shot at Patten. I was taking a shot at the ludicrous idea that the Patriots need a "BURNER" to be able to compete for the SB. Which is factually false since they've never had a true "BURNER" as a primary receiver on any of their Championship teams.

You mean Smith whom they tried to get onto the PS, but has had a nice long career as a blocking TE in the league? It's always amazing how you re-write history to fill your BS

Exactly. Apparently they like that kid Gage, but we’ll see how he pans out.
Gage put up over 775 yards last year filling in for Jones and as their #3 receiver. They've also added Pitts and Tajae Sharpe. As well as having a kid by the name of Zaccheus who played decently last year.

They have a very dynamic group of receivers and tight ends now.
