Rodgers is a variable at this point. Interviews and his agent will be huge for him. He is definitely a better overall talent than Hunter, bigger/stronger/faster and more consistent. But he is a world-class problem child. Drug arrests, suspended by coaches four times for insubordination and one questionable assault on a coach that both sides played down. I have consistently mocked him in the middle of the 2nd.
Hunter is good-not-great. Inconsistent. Very rarely catches the ball cleanly with his hands. I love his gear-changing on his routes and he's crafty after the catch. Guessing he goes very early 2nd round.
Patterson is going to be the first WR taken when all is said and done. Could be a top 12 player, sky-high ceiling. His quickness for a 6'3" (probably closer to 6'2" though) is freakish, instant top speed and can cut sharply at top speed. Strong, long-armed, very strong hands. He needs some polish and a good veteran mentor but Patterson has better natural ability than Michael Crabtree or Roddy White.
