    Cordarelle Patterson or Tavon Austin

    Both have been talked about a lot here lately. Both are absolute player makers, but who do you prefer? Why?

    Re: Cordarelle Patterson or Tavon Austin

    Very interesting question that is sure to spark plenty of debate.

    I would go Patterson for a few reasons. First, I feel that he offers movement skills a 6'2 rocked up WR shouldn't be able to do. One of the major "pluses" on Austin is his quickness (which is no doubt amazing). However I feel that Patterson's quickness is not that far off and he offers a much bigger frame.

    Further, people discuss Austins ability to play RB, however Patterson did as well (and scored as many TDs as Austin).

    Basically I view these two as playmakers that will succeed and I will be GLAD to have either.

    I think they both compare favorably to Percy Harvin, and when I ask myself would I rather have a bigger version of Harvin or a smaller version of Harvin... I'll choose the bigger version every time.

    I'll go with Patterson. Even though Austin more of a playmaker than Cordarelle as of now, Austin's size is a concern and playing in the NFC West where defenses are looking to lay the wood on the small fry. All it takes is one launch to see the guy wrapped in bags. Cordarelle's elusiveness is really impressive for a guy who's 6'2" and has physical intangibles as well as speed. I'm willing to develop the guy, especially with an excellent WR coach like Ray Sherman.
