04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: KANSAS: WR Daymond Patterson (5-8, 177, 4.45)...Although he's a smaller target and will be out-muscled easily, Patterson is a reliable target with enough speed and toughness to make something happen after the catch. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

07/09/2012 - Top-five Kansas prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. WR Daymond Patterson (5-8, 180)...After leading the team in receiving as a junior in 2010, Patterson was poised for a big season as a senior last year, but was lost after an injury in the season opener, taking a medical redshirt. Starting his career at cornerback, he is another example of a player who switched positions under coach Gill, however this time, defense-to-offense. Patterson was a three-star receiver recruit out of Texas and played mostly at wideout (two starts) as a true freshman before moving to cornerback towards the second half of the season (six starts). He began his sophomore season in 2009 as a starting cornerback, but struggled and was demoted to athe bench. Patterson moved back to receiver as a junior in 2010 (11 starts) and finished with a team-best 60 catches for 487 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He injured his groin in the 2011 season opener and decided to take a medical redshirt instead of attempting a late-season comeback. Patterson is back to 100% health and looked sharp in spring practices, catching passes from new quarterback Dayne Crist and should regain his spot as the team's top target in the fall. He is vastly undersized and doesn't have the type of frame to get much bigger, but plays fast with the foot quickness to elude defenders and create with the ball in his hands. Patterson also has experience on special teams, averaging 8.2 yards on punt returns with one career touchdown. He is more of a late-round or undrafted type of receiver, but could surprise in 2012. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
