Patterson's a smart and instinctive runner that wins with active feet at the line of scrimmage. His feet are constantly churning, which helps set him up in great positions to explode through running lanes. Excellent vision in-between the tackles and consistently creates positive yardage for himself through good decision-making. Lacks elite burst, but has more than enough to be serviceable in the NFL. A very decisive runner though and has enough burst to explode through the hole when it opens up. Good lateral mobility through active footwork, but does have a hard time throttling down his momentum in the open field to shift side-to-side. Has the willingness to engage in contact and lower his shoulder in the open field. Might not have as much effectiveness against NFL-caliber defenders, but he certainly doesn't shy away from contact. Shows good top-end speed on tape and was consistently breaking away for long touchdown runs. Against NFL-caliber defenders, his speed might not be as effective and he'll certainly get caught from behind. With his listed weight being under 200, you'd like to see more straight line speed, but this is also not how he'll be asked to win in the NFL. Good contact balance and consistently breaking out of arm tackles. Hard to decipher whether or not this was due to the below-average defenses that he played against on tape or due to a natural ability. However, does have the ability to get knocked and keep his feet underneath him. Had zero receptions in the games that I watched, which is concerning for his projection at the next level. Did show natural receiving ability in the 2019 tape that I watched, but no involvement as a receiver in college is concerning for projecting him at the next level. Willing to stand in in pass protection. Doesn't have the size to hold off blitzing players, but shows the desire to stand in and help protect his QB. Overall, Patterson's production should have him in the early Day 3 conversation. However, there are size concerns and he'll most likely be destined to be a part of a rotation at the next level. The instincts and technique is evident on tape, but the lack of elite athleticism is unlikely to vault him into the starting RB conversation at any point in his career.
