    They might if he can beat out Sherels at the NFL level. Patterson averaged 26.8 in college last year, Sherels averaged 26.4. Of course, if Sherels is cut at the end of camp that becomes moot.

    I actually expect more impact in 2014 from these guys than in 2013. Floyd is an undertackle, and he will play behind Kevin Williams as a rookie. Corner and receiver are positions that usually play out in their second or third season.
    Really? I'm not positive, but I think Floyd will start next to Kevin Williams, replacing Letroy Guion.

    Nope - in the D-line, he's the same sort of guy as KWill. The papers here, however, think they will find ways to get them both on the line at the same time. Kevin's done after 2013.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Yeah, I realize the position is the same... but still believe Floyd will start over Guion. I mean, they play Griffin at DT sometimes, so I'm not really too concerned about what position he's currently labeled as... you want to get your talent on the field.

    I just think it's important for folks to realize which Williams he's more likely to be replacing. He's not a big butt in the middle like Phat Pat.

    Forget Justin Hunter a.k.a. Sir Drops-a-lot! a.k.a. "Poor Man's Randy Moss".
    Cordarelle Patterson is slightly faster, more explosive, has better hands, is much more versatile, and is a MUCH better runner with the ball.

    This is absolutely correct. KW's contract is up after this year, and in all likelihood I can see him moving on if Floyd pans out as expected.

    It is going to be fun/interesting to see them playing side by side for a while this year tho.

    Exactly. He can play both sides as well as inside and outside. A little research suggests that he will see time along side Kevin.

    The notion that we got a top 5 player at 23 and a top 20 player at 25 and another top 20 player at 29 is ridiculous, first of all there is no way to tell how these players will pan out and secondly, in Floyds case 22 GM's passed on him. 24 in Rhodes case and 28 in Pattersons case.

    And calling in the best draft ever before the draft is over is also a bit of a stretch.
