04/25/2013 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 42. WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech (6-0, 204, 5SR)...Although he doesn't look like much physically, Patton has the foot quickness to create after the catch and always seems to be playing fast but under control. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/08/2013 - 2013 Louisiana Tech Pro Day: There were a total of 23 NFL teams represented at Louisiana Tech Pro Day on March 26. The workout was held outdoors on field-turf. A total of 24 players worked out. Quinton Patton WR (6-0 ??, 202 pounds) - He ran 4.48 and 4.50 in the 40-yard dash. He recorded a 37-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. Patton kept the rest of his numbers from the combine. He looked very good. Patton had a couple drops early but then looked very good catching the ball. He's probably going to be a second-round pick. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

01/24/2013 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Wide Receivers, Three up...3. Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech. Many analysts were surprised by how well Patton adapted to playing with kids from big schools as he stood out for the right reasons. He was quick off the snap and ran really well. Though he didn't have a breakaway gear, he did show off great hands and concentration throughout the week, particularly on Wednesday when he caught a pass from E.J. Manuel with a defender right on his hip. Expect teams to study up on him and consider him to be a Z receiver. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com

01/22/2013 - 2013 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY RISER: WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech (South Team)...Although this year's senior wide receiver group doesn't have a lock first round talent, Quinton Patton is making a strong case to be considered among the top-32 picks. Thus far at practice, he has looked more impressive than Baylor's Terrance Williams and others with his controlled athleticism to separate and change gears. Patton doesn't have elite size (6-0, 202) or speed, but he plays fast and balanced with the hands to be a reliable go-to target. He likely won't get out of the top-60 selections. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/16/2012 - 2012 AP ALL-AMERICAN SECOND TEAM: WR - Quinton Patton, senior, Louisiana Tech...Patton, a native of La Vergne, Tenn., caught 104 passes for 1,392 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games this season. He finished the year averaging 13.4 yards per catch and 116.0 yards per game, ranking fourth in the nation in receiving yards per game and fifth in the nation in receptions per game. Patton was also fifth in the nation in touchdowns scored among wide receivers. - Louisiana Tech football

12/07/2012 - 2012 ALL-WAC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR-Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech, Sr., has been selected First Team All-Western Athletic Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. - Louisiana Tech Football

10/16/2012 - 10-15-12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: WR QUINTON PATTON, LOUISIANA TECH...In a senior class without a clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver prospect, Quinton Patton is making a strong case to be ranked above Baylor's Terrance Williams, Marshall's Aaron Dobson and other highly-touted senior wideouts. Although it was somewhat overlooked because his performance came in thrilling loss that didn't end until early 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, Patton had a career-game against Texas A&M on Saturday night. He finished with 21 catches for 233 yards (11.1 average) and four touchdowns, all career-bests. Listed at 6-2 and 205 pounds, Patton lacks imposing size, but he uses his length well and has deceiving strength to make plays after first contact. He has a great feel in coverage, both before the catch to gain some separation and after the reception to create with the ball in his hands. Patton has quick feet, vision and acceleration to elude defenders and weave through the secondary. He tracks the ball extremely well with very good balance and coordination, quickly turning upfield in the same motion as the catch. Patton won't test off the charts and plays for a team that doesn't produce a lot of NFL talent, but he's a top-100 prospect and rising. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

10/15/2012 - WEEK 7 WAC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Louisiana Tech wide receiver Quinton Patton, a senior from La Vergne, Tenn. (Coffeyville CC), tied a school record with 21 catches for 233 yards and four touchdowns in Louisiana Tech's 59-57 loss to Texas A&M. He scored three of his four touchdowns in the second half as the Bulldogs rallied from a 27-0 deficit to pull within two points twice in the fourth quarter. The 21 catches are the most by any receiver in the nation this year and one shy of the WAC record of 22 set by BYU's Jay Miller in 1973. Others nominated on offense: junior quarterback David Fales, San Jose State; senior quarterback Shaun Rutherford, Texas State; and senior running back Kerwynn Williams, Utah State. - WAC football

Illinois (2-2) turned the ball over three times in the first quarter and the Bulldogs (3-0) cashed in for an early 21-7 lead. Cameron and Patton connected on a pair of early third-quarter touchdowns that put the Bulldogs up for good, 35-17. After missing the past two games with a sprained ankle, Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was ineffective and left the game in the first quarter.

Louisiana Tech, which beat Houston 56-49 last week, opened the season with two consecutive victories for the first time since 2004. The Owls (1-2) weren't too bad on offense themselves, rolling up 477 yards -- 277 rushing and 205 passing.

07/18/2012 - 2012 BILETNIKOFF AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech, has been selected to the Preseason Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented to America's top college football wide receiver by The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. The redshirt senior finished the 2011 campaign with 79 catches for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 15.2 yards per catch and ranking 21st in the nation in receiving. Patton also returned eight punts for 27 yards and six kickoffs for 98 yards on the year. As Patton continued wow crowds with his athletic ability on the field he also garnered national headlines off the field. During the team's trip to San Diego, Calif. for the Poinsettia Bowl last season, Patton national media's eye as he selflessly gave one of his bowl gifts (a $300 Best Buy gift card) to one of the kids at the bowl's Make-A-Wish Foundation event. He followed that on gameday by wheeling out another Make-A-Wish Foundation kid, pushing his wheelchair along with the Bulldogs as the team ran out of the tunnel and onto the field prior to the game. With his famous last name and proven ability to lead his team, Bulldog fans everywhere have quickly nicknamed him "General" Patton. After Louisiana Tech's overtime loss to Mississippi State early in the season, State cornerback Jonathan Banks paid tribute to Patton's ability in an interview with ESPN.com saying, "I feel like (Quinton Patton) from Louisiana Tech is the best receiver I've played against since I've been here. I've gone against some good ones in the SEC, too, but he's probably the most complete." - La Tech football
