Second round or later.
I kind of get the same vibe. He seems like the typical prospect that catches fire early with the sizzle plays. But as people look at him deeper, they notice a huge drop off on all of the other plays.
He just seems like a headliner/ceiling guy and when the draft comes, and people have to hitch their livelihoods and continued employment in the league on that #1 pick -- I think his value is going to drop in that moment of truth.
This draft is so deep in day 1 and even day 2, that there is a significant opportunity cost to busting on day 1. Because unlike most years, the next 30 guys that get picked after your bust, are probably all going to be quality starters in this league. You as a team will exit the draft in worse relative talent shape to the rest of the league. Usually, a late teens/early twenties pick can accomodate that risk, because the talent drop off is usually pretty significant after that.
I can see Patterson going day 2.
