    Justin Hunter, Cordarrelle Patterson, Da'Rick Rogers and Zach Rodgers. Yeah, I know Da'Rick went to Tennessee Tech last year, but whatevs.

    How do you rate these guys?

    I watch Da'Rick Rogers' highlights and I can't help but shake the feeling I'm watching Kenny Britt making plays at Rutgers. Big, fast enough to stretch the field, physical after he catches the ball, wins 50/50 balls, goes over the middle fearlessly, off-field troubles.

    Justin Hunter looks like a guy who likes to play exclusively outside. Isn't very physical, gets alligator arms sometimes, smooth and athletic, good ball skills. Came back from a torn ACL and played well, so I'd guess he's a hard worker.

    Zach Rodgers seems like your typical slot receiver. Short, small, quicker than fast, good hands, can make the first guy miss.

    The one guy I just don't know about is Patterson. Inconsistent hands, a body catcher, sloppy routes, big, physical, fast, explosive, makes a big play every game. Looks like he's better with the ball in his hands than he is as a pure receiver. For such an athletic freak he was shut down in the passing game regularly, forcing UT to play him at running back for a big play.

    Honestly, I think I'd rate these guys D. Rogers, Hunter, Patterson and Z. Rodgers.

    I rate them all as underachievers and Patterson is a quitter

    If we were to take a Tennessee receiver I would rather have Zach Rogers in the later rounds, they want Britt and Wright on the outsides we need a slot receiver and Zach Rogers is made for the slot. He's was a logistic major in college very bright kid, watched an interview with him and if their was a question about routes and the playbook he was the go to guy to ask.

    Looks like Will Muschamp screaming at someone to me. That's what it's been since January...
