Scouting Report: Mike Patterson
Full Name: Mike Patterson School: USC Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 292 40: 5/09 The Good: Explosive interior lineman that does a tremendous job playing with leverage. Quickly gets off the snap with a nice first step, bends his knees and gets underneath opponents. Displays exceptional hand technique getting off blocks, quick if asked to twist and fights hard until the whistle blows. Rarely off his feet, plays with balance and displays a burst of closing speed. Doubled by opponents yet holds his ground and displays strength in his lower body. Redirects to the action and shows the ability to change direction. The Bad: Undersized and has difficulty against bigger opponents. Engulfed at the point of attack. The Skinny: An excellent football player that disrupts the offense and creates havoc in the backfield, Patterson will be downgraded because of poor size\speed numbers. Possesses first round playing skill yet only middle frame size which adds up to Patterson being selected during the late part of day one next April. His combination of quickness, leverage and ability to change direction makes him perfectly suited to play the three technique spot at the next level.
