    Hunt or Amerson. Your opinion is null and void.

    Well here are Patterson's and Hunter's stats matched up together. Hunter outperformed Patterson in nearly every game. We certainly got the better receiver even though Patterson is better in space.

    Hunter, J. WR 73-1083/9 9-73/0 8-146/3 5-76/0 8-115/1 3-46/0 2-41/0 4-70/0 8-90/0 9-181/3 9-141/1 5-39/0 3-65/1
    Patterson, C. WR 46-778/5 6-93/1 3-71/0 8-75/1 2-20/0 2-31/0 2-25/1 1-25/0 3-26/0 9-219/1 3-53/0 3-52/0 4-88/1


    For comparison Patterson against those same teams had 16 catches for 182 yards and 2 tds.

    Hunter had 22 catches for 323 yards and 0 tds.

    So maybe the Bray struggled getting them the ball but Hunter still outperformed yards and number of catches likely going against the opponents #1 corner.

    Hunter is 6'4 with a 40 inch vertical. Runs a 4.45.

    Nate has none of those things

    Numbers only tell half the story. I'd take the word of people who actually watched the games over someone who just pulls up a stat sheet to make a point. Texas Tech plays is the very competitive Big XII and regularly produces QB's and WR's with ridiculous stats. How have they fared in the NFL? Only receivers I can think of are Welker and Crabtree, no QB's. Stats aren't everything.

    Hunter's play book " Go deep"

    Gets demoralizing when the corner plays 15 yards off every play. The difference between those bad teams and good teams is he was able to get the ball when they know it is coming against bad teams.

    Hunter is a good route runner. Dooley just thought he was playing a game of Madden

    starting to like this pick more and more, he is definitely the most athletic and most polished receiver in this draft. Top 15 talent and we got him in the second round because of his injury.

    Also for the people who are saying Hunter is a body catcher need to watch his tape pre-injury more closely because he use to not let as many get into his body. I think his body catching is mostly a result of him not trusting his knee 100% which would cause him not to concentrate on the field.
