The San Francisco 49ers have a ton of wide receivers. However, that hasn’t stopped Quinton Patton from standing out in the crowd, as Greg Roman explained.
“He’s getting a lot of reps, doing a good job. I love his work ethic,” said the offensive coordinator on Tuesday right before the team broke camp for Baltimore.
“A lot of what he’s doing I really like and he’s able to do it day in and day out. So, he’s making a very favorable impression.”
After injuries limited the second-year player to just six games a season ago, the key has simply been remaining on the field during training camp.
“He’s been able to stay healthy and that’s the number one thing.”
With Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd both sidelined, Patton should get plenty of chances to continue to build his case for more playing time on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens.
