Wide receiver Dez Patmon is considered one of the most physically gifted pass catchers to grace the Palouse with his great size and speed. However the 6-foot-4 230 pound outside receiver was known to be inconsistent on the field at times. Still Patmon finished his senior year with 58 catches for 762 yards and 8 touchdowns with making honorable mention All Pac-12. Now Dez gets his shot to impress the pro scouts this week in practices for Saturday’s East-West Shrine Bowl in St Petersburg FL.
Patmon has made some waves so far according to reporter Mike Luciano. Patmon has looked the best among the top big collegiate receivers invited to this game per Luciano. Here is a highlight of him catching a jump ball from Utah’s Tyler Huntley.

The Green Bay Packers have taken notice as they met with the Cougar playmaker yesterday according to Luciano. NFLdraftcountdown.com currently has Patmon as the 42nd ranked receiver in the draft.
The East-West Shrine Game will take place for the 95th time at Noon Saturday on the NFL network if you want see Patmon compete against some of the best players in the country. Good luck Dez!

“I suppose, I don’t see my story as a football story, or even an ALS story,” said Steve Gleason, “but rather, a human story. The truth is, that we all experience pain in our lives. But I believe that the problems we face are our opportunity, and define our human purpose.”
