Curious Case of Dezmon Patmon


Recommended Posts

Today I had came across the inactive players for today's game, and seen Dezmon Patmon name.  I always see his name on the inactive list, and was wondering if anyone heard of any progress with his development?  I’m really curious to see how good this kid is going to be, because the team is clearly trying to make sure no other team can sign him by keeping him off the practice squad.  What makes him so important I wonder...

He's big, fast, has good hands, explosive playmaking, and has never played in a non-spread offense.... So that's why they want to keep him and develop him, he has all the things you can't teach....

You guys are correct in he has the things that can't be taught - raw ability. I liken him to Dante Moncrief  - though Dante ran slightly faster but Dezmon has more twitch in his jumping ability AND is taller/longer.

 

To some that may be a bad comp but when Dante's head was is the game he was a pretty solid number two that could stretch the field.

 

Next season I envision Dezmon playing more of the X and Pittman more in the slot as a "bully".......

Patmon glides when he runs, watched 10 Wash St games last season. He is going to be very solid once his route tree is refined. Another team would scoop him up in a minute.


Good to know, I don’t think I watched any of his games.   It would be nice to have another tall WR.  
 

I just hope he doesn’t commit a penalty each week like his best bro.

Word during the pre-season was he wasn’t ready but they didn’t want to cut him because they knew another team would claim him because of his raw talent.  He’s more or less having a red-shirt season like Eason.

Yea I’m ready to see both of them boys next season or maybe if we’re lucky, the last game of this season

I won’t put too much expectations on him, but I am excited to see what he can eventually do with what all i’ve heard from camp this year and what you all have been saying

He be fine. There were guys ahead of him in the development "chute". Pittman is obviously ahead of him, that is why he was out there. Who would he replace on the game day roster? Pascal who had 79 yds and two TD's? I doubt that Patmon at this time is at the same level as Pittman as a blocker.

He may, in effect, be our receiver in the next draft class to go with Hilton (assuming he's signed), Pittman, Pascal and Campbell and either Johnson or Harris.

You brought up Pascal and it made me think I hope the Colts bring him back.  He does a lot of dirty work that doesn’t get noticed and he just catches the ball when it comes his way most of the time.  Still I think he’s a bit under appreciated here because he’s not a big name and he wasn’t a high draft pick.  His play has earned him the number WR slot this year.

Pascal is an excellent blocker.  Might need patmon in playoffs to keep up with chiefs.

Blocking and aggressiveness are the best two attributes I love about Pascal.  Honestly I feel he was the reason we won yesterday.  On his second touchdown, if that was any other receiver, I don’t think they would have taken a hit and stretched out for that touchdown.  He’s a tough competitor for sure

    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
    • Yup. If you read the above discussion, I've shared the parameters we used in a past mock, that made things go much faster. I think the the key is to stick to evenings, keep a crisp/clean big board, shorten the clock, and more or less do a "schedule" for picks so everyone knows +/- 15 minutes when they have be available. The all day all week long clock stuff is just not conducive to keeping folks attention.
    • I'd say divide everyone into two groups. Those who want a shot at the Colts, and those who want another team. If only one person wants another team, they get it. That way you at least have a few that are vested in non-Colts picking.   After you clear as many non-Colts folks as possible, do a lottery for everyone (lottery with team selection order).   Purely my opinion, but I think first come first serve hurts interest level. And I think it's important to try and be fair, but also match folks to a team they are interested in. 
    • I'm going to believe this tweet over the one you posted. Just seems too far out of character for Ballard to offer MORE than 15.5 per year for Watt.   Charles Robinson @CharlesRobinson Unless the #Colts, #Browns and #Titans are straight up lying, this is not what I’ve been told. I’ve been told by multiple Watt suitors that the $23 million guaranteed in Watt’s Arizona deal was near ceiling for their total $. Teams were trying to get Watt for roughly $12 mil per.
