Colts draft Dezmon Patmon WR Washington St


Recommended Posts

Overview

Big pass-catcher with intriguing size but lacking the assertiveness to impose his will. Patmon suffers from an overall lack of suddenness to uncover on both the first and second levels and issues with focus drops is an additional concern since he'll see plenty of contested catches. He has decent buildup speed, body control and ball skills to compete for 50/50 balls, but he doesn't always play with "my-ball" attitude. He's big but limited and must play with better confidence and toughness to carve out a roster spot.

Reminds me a bit of Demaryius Thomas, nice red zone finisher and chain mover, it looks like, has good size and good feet, the more highlights I watch of him. Just initial impressions.

 

Will try to watch more.

I like it. He’s got that size the Colts need at WR.

 

Him and Pittman make it obvious that Ballard was looking to add the kind of receiver Rivers thrives with.

Saw 10 Wash state games as a huge Anthony Gordon fan, this kid is smooth almost glides down the field.  Gordon spread the ball around so his stats may not be as good as they would have been elsewhere (Arconado and Winston are also talented wr for them). I had a feeling we would draft 2 wrs who make roster one early and one late and this is what happened. Better than the end of our current wr group (M Johnson, Fountain,Dulin)...he will stick

Despite his size, he doesn’t play with the “my ball” mentality, does sound a lot like DT based on this profile. Health is most important than anything else.

Another big bodied receiver for Rivers. Would have loved KJ Hill, but there are qualities in Patmon that could make him part of the rotation.

Considering our pics this season, It would appear, that we are heading in the right direction, regardless of petty dribble that a lot of fans seem to invoke because of their favorites did not play into Ballard's plans! Oh boo hoo!

2 big targets added at WR. Not even sure the last time we had 2 6'4 WRs on the team. I like it though. 


I wouldn’t bank on him making the team. I’d guess PS.

Interesting. his physical numbers are really impressive.

but I must say, i watched a LOT of Anthony Gordon highlights and against certain teams.

and I don't remember this kid.

doesn't mean squat, but with a qb that threw like 6000 TD passes, I don't remember seeing him ..

gonna go back now

Is the question of our WRs answered? Time will tell, but we sure made an effort this year. 


Yep, I’m feeling the D. Cain excitement here on the Forum with Patmon already.

Looks like a Z receiver that can make plays down field for us and in the endzone. I'd say he will battle it our with the likes of Fountain, Dulin, Ismael and others for that 5th WR spot on the roster. But looks that have nice upside as a H/W/S prospect.

Didnt realize he ran a 4.48 at the combine.   He doesn't look that fast on the tape.

Put Pittman and Patmon on the field at the same time and you got faster

versions of when Cam Newton had Benjamin and Funchesss.

I really liked before last year's draft when Ballard said something like "You know you're building a good team when you cut from 75 to 53 and 10 or more of the guys you cut go on and make another roster."

 

Right now, I'd say this is the best WR group we've had since Marvin retired.  With TY and Pittman, I think we'll have a good 1-2 punch.  If Campbell stays healthy, we've got another speed demon.  I think Pascal will most definitely make this team.  Then we've got Patmon, M. Johnson, Fountain, Dulin for the last 1-2 spots at WR.  I'd think if we cut 2 of those guys, they'll wind up on another teams roster by opening day.

Pascal makes the team because of his blocking. He’s willing, able,  and unafraid.

Pittman and Patmon. This should be interesting.

We could call them the pitter -patter boom duo someday hopefully.

Camp is going to be very competitive at WR especially if Paris and Fountain are-healthy!!

Don’t sleep on Ashton Dulin either. He had some really nice traits, just needed nfl coaching and strength and conditioning along with more experience. Cuts will be tough again this year, hope we cut correctly.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
