    I guess that's why Patton is coming in for a visit.

    Not sure how they came up with these numbers but if you want to compare these numbers to wide receivers in the NFL 2012 here is a link.

    Interesting but... incomplete?

    Where are, for example, DeAndre Hopkins, Justin Hunter, Markus Wheaton... etc.? Did they all have a higher drop % than Williams, or is this just a random sampling?

    The guy who is tweeting the picture is John Pollard, the GM of the STATS company. Someone asked him about Hopkins on Twitter, and his response: "Good question, he has a 5.8% Drop rate, tied w/ Williams for 15th. DeAndre,128 targets.Their # s close across the board."

    I'm just as concerned about separation, quite frankly. We had guys who could (generally) catch, but couldn't get open and it didn't make us a great offense. Now, AV and Nick will come explain why I'm wrong about something...

    Ha! Not at all, separation skills are quite important as well. Unfortunately, that's probably a difficult one to represent in a chart like this.

    i think one should take into account how the quarterback was performing when those drops occured

    just an example, but at times, barkley was not throwing well to anybody, which is usually when woods had his drops, not to say he didn't drop good throws, but again, an example

    I agree. And doesn't it also depend on how well they were covered, how deep the route,etc ? Even what is deemed catchable, never mind clutch, is highly subjective. I certainly wouldn't rank a 5 yd first down catch on second down vs a LB equal to a third and ten 30 yd TD vs a starting corner or double coverage.

    All I can say is... Quinton Patton is looking mighty nice from those two charts.
    I believe!
