The 49ers were excited to see Quinton Patton’s name available when it came time to make the No. 128 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Louisiana Tech wideout had 24 touchdowns in two seasons, both of which he was given first-team All-WAC honors. San Francisco knew they were getting a competitive player in the 6-foot, 202-pound wideout, but they were blown away when Patton tried to visit team headquarters earlier this week.
“He’s just a good, solid, all-around receiver,” general manager Trent Baalke said of Patton after the draft.
Jim Harbaugh liked Patton’s eagerness to get to work with the 49ers, but it turns out, Patton’s made a habit of logging extra hours on the job.
Santa Clara’s Super Bowl bid could receive a major boost based on a pending vote in South Florida.
