Seattle Seahawks Interested in Former NCAA Standout Chris Patrick

Published on September 19, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

chris patrickUnselected in the 2007 Supplemental Draft, Patrick has bounced around the NFL ever since. He spent 2007 with the Giants, Packers, and Patriots. 2008 saw him with the Lions, placed on Detroit’s injured reserve list, and subsequently subject to a release with an injury settlement and a brief stint with the 49ers. It’s telling that with all their offensive line depth issues, the Philadelphia Eagles waived him on September 1st of this year. Still, Philly likes their linemen big and at 6-4 and 310 pounds, Patrick may be a better fit in a zone-blocking system like Seattle’s.

“Matt Light from the Patriots,” Patrick said, when asked who he’d like to be compared to. “I’m comparable in size and ability. I always admired guys like him and the Broncos’ Ben Hamilton. Hamilton isn’t very big but he is very effective and knows exactly what he should be doing on every play. I played in a zone blocking scheme under coach (Bill) Callahan like they run in Denver so I can appreciate what goes into it.

As Nebraska Sports Info put it, Patrick’s collegiate ability was truly special. At left tackle for the Cornhuskers in 2006, the former defensive end “blocked for an improved Husker offense that ranks among the nation’s leaders in rushing, passing, total offense and scoring this season. Patrick has protected the back side for senior Zac Taylor, who rewrote most of Nebraska’s individual single-season and career passing marks this season. The 6-4, 290-pound Patrick also has blocked for a Nebraska running attack averaging more than 175 yards per game.”
