Quinton Patton, WR, 49ers
|WR - #62||SF||Active||2 years||23||6'0||204|
2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-30-2013 by Shawn Larabee
Update (8-30): Rookie Quinton Patton scored for the second straight preseason game with a 26-yard TD grab and finished with two receptions for 52 yards against the Chargers. In both games, Patton had six receptions for 87 yards - and looked like a legitimate contender for the 49ers receiver spot opposite Anquan Boldin. With Boldin resting, Patton started opposite Marlon Moore, who started throughout the preseason. Those two have moved into possible late round flyer category with Patton nudging in front.
The 128th pick in the 2013 draft, Patton was expected to step in and push A.J. Jenkins for the no. 2 or 3 WR spot but Paton missed most of preseason with a broken finger and Jenkins played himself out of San Francisco. Kyle Williams and Marlon Moore have been battling for Michael Crabtree's vacant position, making it look very much like Patton will begin his NFL career as Anquan Boldin's backup.

|18.08||DLF.com - TheFFGhost - So just to be safe, I drafted Patton a round after Jenkins to make sure I got Crabtree's replacement. With this pick I can feel confident that I've grabbed a solid WR to help offset the issues I had in the middle of the draft.|

|17.01||FantasyTaz - Another pick based purely on "what if." I am not a fan of AJ Jenkins and I wont be surprised if Patton quickly passes him in training camp. If that happens and he can secure the #2 role in SF then this pick will be a huge steal. But even if he doesn't, I could see him getting a decent amount of chances as this team looks to fill the void of Crabtree.|
