Could be a medical issue that the public is not privy to, could also be something on the tape that jumped out to many pro-scouts as being a big red flag. We don't really know what drives teams evaluations. He caught on with the WFT so he will get his chance in the pros.

There's still just more good football players than draft positions , and having prerequisite size still matters

 

Being 5'6 absolutely pushes him down boards.. if he was 5'10 he would have been drafted 100% 

 

It doesn't matter because there are tons of undrafted running backs that make it

I watched him quite a bit.  He's a "gamer", but he doesn't really pass the eyeball test, even against MAC opponents.  He's small and very slow by NFL standards.  I just don't see him overcoming his athletic shortcomings.  Practice squad fodder at best, imo.

So, Clyde Edwards- Helaire? Pretty much the same size and Patterson is a little faster than him. If you can play you can play. 

 

In any case, I don't think he was drafted because he played in the MAC and had a dominant offensive line. The other RB had numbers that were just as good

5'6 is still a scary size for people 

 

It's ok 30% of the league is UDFA.. cream rises

 

He is 5'9". Pretty stocky 5'9".  And he always has been under-recruited.  His brother James (LB( was not drafted either I think.  James would make a good UDFA for Bills.

Four games into his junior season, the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Patterson has essentially re-written the Mid-American Conference program’s record book, while coming off his most impressive national attention-grabbing moment so far.

dane brugler whose work I respect from the Athletic ranks him prospect #195 overall and the 18th best UDFA

competetive, balanced, vision, quick feet and energy are a plus

feasted on poor run fronts and tackling in the MAC

lack of explosion and contact power does not project well to the next level  - as well as below avg size and speed

signed with the WFT...good luck to him

He's small, he's slow, and he caught zero passes last season.

I was going to say that he's not big, and not fast...

James is coming back for his senior season at UB 

 

And I've stood next to Patterson , he's not 5'9 

 

He's 5'6 but absolutely stout

5'6 195 lbs is pretty stout. It's short but not small 

 

And he has good quickness. He's a 4.5 guy with really good short area agility 

 

Again if he was 5 ft 10 he absolutely gets drafted. Being 5'6 hurts in the draft process

A 4.51 is not below average speed

 

He's solidly average for an NFL running back speed
