Ole Miss was a nice fit for Patterson, who was one of the top guard recruits in the country coming out of Petal, Mississippi. He enrolled a semester early to get a leg up on his freshman season. The result was six starts (four at left guard, two at right guard) in 12 games that season. Patterson started all 12 games in 2016 (nine at left guard, three at center) and then stayed in one spot as a junior, starting all 12 games at left guard. He finished his career with the Rebels by starting all 12 games at guard once again.

Overview
Athletic and fluid in space, but more adequate than "plus" or "minus" in most categories. He has starting experience at all three interior line positions, but will likely be graded as a center by most teams due to his lack of length and power. He needs to meet slants and swim moves with his feet rather than his chest once he gets into the league. Patterson's body control and foot quickness could make him a Day 3 target for teams looking to add interior competition in a move-based rushing attack.
Strengths
  • Split low with longer torso and shorter legs
  • Athletic with plus feet and flexible hips
  • Races out of stance and strikes with force on pull blocks
  • Capable of handling long pull and screen duties in space
  • Rhythmic work-up blocker
  • Above average body control and radar to find and strike centered blows
  • Quick to process and adjust blocks against moving fronts
  • Hip torque to seal shade defenders out of run gap
  • Pairs tenacity with athletic mirror to slow rushers
  • Displays adequate anchor vs
  • bull-rush
Weaknesses
  • Frame lacks broadness and girth
  • Issues finding clean contact against slanting fronts
  • Leans over moving feet as base blocker
  • Lacks pop in punch at point of attack
  • Rarely generates much bounce on down blocks
  • Drive power is below average
  • Average sustain
  • Rushers can play through his edge once they get there
  • Can be a step slow to see twists coming
  • Should look for more work in pass pro when uncovered
