Elton Patterson

DE | (6-1, 270, 5.05) | UCF
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Played in every game as a true freshman in 1999 and has started the past three years. Had 20 tackles, three for loss and two sacks his first year; 88-19-10 in 2000; 85-21-9 in '01; and 63-16½-9½ as a senior.

Positives: Solid worker who puts in a lot of time in the weight room. Is strong for size and quick and active and shows good character and competitiveness. Gives you his all and will hustle and chase all over the field. Very productive.

Negatives: Has marginal size for a defensive lineman and is not fast enough to be a linebacker. Will get engulfed and buried at times. A little stiff and lacks quick, fluid change-of-direction and explosiveness.

Summary: Quality free agent who could be a late pick because of his intangibles.
