Quinton Patton caught one pass for eight yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.
Patton operated as the 49ers' third receiver, but that did not get him many snaps with the first-team offense. San Francisco ran a lot of two-wide formations with FB Bruce Miller or an extra tight end on the field. With an uncertain workload on an offense poised to struggle, Patton is well off the redraft radar. Aug 30 - 12:17 AM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows said WR Quinton Patton is being given "every opportunity" to win the 49ers' No. 3 receiver competition.

With Jerome Simpson suspended to start the year, Patton has a leg up on Bruce Ellington, who has missed the last two weeks with a leg strain. UDFA DeAndrew White has played well in camp, but he is a long-shot to pass Patton on the depth chart.

49ers wide receivers coach Ronald Curry said third-year WR Quinton Patton will get a "real opportunity" this season.

"Quinton Patton has always flashed," Curry said. "He’s always been dedicated, he’s always been focused, he’s always worked hard, he’s smart and it’s going to be interesting to see how he does in this camp." With Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith firmly entrenched atop the depth chart, Patton will compete with Bruce Ellington and Jerome Simpson for snaps in three-wide sets.

Quinton Patton believes he's playing with more confidence this offseason.

"Totally different," Patton said. "I'm not going to say it's my time, but I'm coming." Patton spent several weeks training with Colin Kaepernick in Arizona and has reportedly stood out during OTAs. With Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith locked in on the outside, Patton, Bruce Ellington, and Jerome Simpson are competing for the 49ers’ No. 3 receiver job.

49ers GM Trent Baalke singled out third-year WR Quinton Patton as a player having "an excellent offseason."

Baalke mentioned the speed the 49ers' offense has now that Patton is healthy and with the additions of Torrey Smith, Jerome Simpson, and Reggie Bush. Smith and Anquan Boldin are locked in as the 49ers' top two wideouts, but the No. 3 spot figures to come down to Patton, Simpson, and pint-sized Bruce Ellington. Patton runs good routes, has good hands, and can play inside and outside.

49ers GM Trent Baalke referred to third-year WR Quinton Patton as "a young player that hasn't gotten an opportunity."

"Now's his opportunity. Let's see what he can do," Baalke said. The 49ers' depth chart is wide open behind Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, as the technically-sound Patton would only have to beat out Bruce Ellington for No. 3 duties. That could change by next week with Baalke likely to draft a receiver.

49ers WR Quinton Patton's lone Week 17 target went for a 35-yard catch.

Patton ends his sophomore NFL season with just three catches. He played behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd. Patton was a fairly intriguing prospect coming out of Louisiana Tech for his route-running chops, but he will likely enter 2015 training camp on the roster bubble.

Quinton Patton caught 2-of-6 targets for nine yards Week 16 against the Chargers.

Patton saw extended time with Michael Crabtree (knee) sidelined, but failed to do much with the work. Patton's most notable play of the game was an overtime fumble that set the Chargers up for a game-winning field goal.

49ers declared WR Quinton Patton, OT Anthony Davis, NT Glenn Dorsey, CB Tramaine Brock, WR Bruce Ellington, QB Josh Johnson, and TE Vance McDonald inactive for Week 12 against the Redskins.

A non-factor all year, Patton has fallen behind Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd in addition to Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree.

Quinton Patton ran ahead of Stevie Johnson during the 49ers' third preseason game.

The No. 3 spot behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin appears to be a fluid situation, with Brandon Lloyd also in the mix. There's even been speculation that Johnson and his $3.65 million salary could be a surprise cut Saturday. Patton, a 2013 fourth-round pick, has one catch for 10 yards through 78 preseason snaps. Johnson has two catches for 11 yards on 36 snaps.

ESPN's Bill Williamson would be "shocked" if second-year WR Quinton Patton is not on the 49ers' final roster.

Patton is battling fourth-round pick Bruce Ellington for No. 4 wide receiver duties, but Williamson assures there is room on the roster for both players. After missing a large chunk of his rookie season with a broken foot, Patton is once again sidelined with a foot injury and uncertain for the start of training camp.

The Sacramento Bee reports 49ers WR Quinton Patton's (foot) CT scan came back clean.

This simply confirms Patton avoided fractures after injuring his foot Monday. An MRI may be next to see if Patton has any ligament damage. This is good news, however, after Patton missed a large portion of his rookie season with a broken foot. He's competing for No. 4 duties with fourth-round pick Bruce Ellington.

49ers WR Quinton Patton is awaiting CT scan results after injuring his foot in Monday's practice.

The injury is supposedly minor, but it's notable because Patton missed a huge chunk of his rookie season with a broken foot. Patton is competing with fourth-rounder Bruce Ellington for No. 4 duties after failing to make an impact in 2013. A serious injury would seriously dampen his 2014 fortunes.

Coach Jim Harbaugh didn't express confidence in Quinton Patton as his No. 3 receiver Wednesday.

The 49ers' actions during free agency should be a wake-up call for Patton. Despite having Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, they've reportedly been after just about every wideout available including Hakeem Nicks, Julian Edelman and DeSean Jackson. According to Harbs, the Niners need "a third guy who can get open and make plays. ... A playmaker. That’s what we're looking for."

The 49ers' organization reportedly views 2013 fourth-round pick Quinton Patton as a future starter at wide receiver.

Patton is unlikely to get that opportunity in 2014, but it could certainly happen in a season or two. Patton finished his rookie year with just three catches for 34 yards in six appearances. He has forward-thinking WR5 value in Dynasty leagues.
