Overview

Patrick is a productive collegiate cornerback that has a chance to develop into a starter at the next level. He excels in zone coverage, as he is always in solid position and flashes the ability to jump underneath routes. He also has the ball skills to make difficult interceptions. He uses a strong press to reroute receivers and has a knack for anticipating routes in zone coverage. However, he loses momentum in transition and does not have the deep speed to stick on vertical routes. Patrick is not a strong tackler, but he has the cover skills to possibly sneak into the second day of the draft.

Analysis

Strengths

Patrick has good size and a muscular build. Plays with balance and shows a smooth back pedal. Delivers an effective press at the line and can turn and run with receivers. Reads the QB's eyes in zone coverage, gets into passing lanes, and has the body control and soft hands to make picks.

Weaknesses

Does not have elite recovery speed and lacks the hip fluidity to mirror in man coverage. Plays too aggressively at times and gets burned by play action and double moves. Can get overwhelmed by bigger receivers in jump ball situations. Gets down on himself and play suffers after mistakes. Inconsistent tackler.
