Strengths 

He is absolutely a production monster, gaining over 1,000 yards and only playing five games. He is a very patient runner and has a quick burst when he finds running lanes. He has great lateral agility and can easily make a defender miss. Can explode through the hole and has the top end speed to burn defenders and make huge plays. Was part of a two RB system and was used as a lead blocker, which he had no problem doing and he is a good pass protector. I think his willingness to be a blocker for another shows great leadership and proves he is there for the betterment of the team. He is very difficult to tackle, even though he isn't a real power runner.

Weaknessess

Really his only weaknesses are in receiving. UB didn't throw much to their backs, so you don't get a good look at his ability here. That being said, what I did see wasn't great. It seemed like they didn't work that much practice either, because his hands and route running was pretty inconsistent. He also struggled with blocking in space, but that is something I feel is common in running backs.

Big Picture

Patterson has the potential to be a very good running back in the NFL and will be the highest draft from UB since Khalil Mack. He is overall an extremely well rounded player. He will absolutely need to prove he can be at least reliable in receiving the ball and should work on his route running. I truly believe he is a plug and play player no matter where he ends up. He shows phenomenal patience in the back field and has the cutting ability and speed to make big plays out of nothing. One of college football's most productive backs during his career, he reached 1,000 yards every season. I think he will end up being the steal of the draft, for whatever team gets him. He should be a second round pick, but with such a different offseason, he might not get the looks he deserves.
