Quinton Arne Patton (born August 9, 1990) is an American football wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). Patton played college football for Louisiana Tech University. The San Francisco 49ers picked him in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Early years

Patton was born in Nashville, Tennessee. He grew up playing little league football for the UNA Bears. From there, he went on to play football and baseball at Stratford High School, before later transferring to La Vergne High School in La Vergne, Tennessee, and playing high school football for the La Vergne Wolverines.

College career

Patton attended Coffeyville Community College for three years before transferring to Louisiana Tech University. At Louisiana Tech, he played for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs football team in 2011 and 2012. During his first year he was named a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference (WAC) selection after he had 79 receptions for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns.[1] In 2012, he had 104 receptions for 1,392 yards and 13 touchdowns,[2] and was again a first-team All-WAC selection.

2013 Season

Patton started the season as backup to the 49ers' No. 3 receiver, Mario Manningham. Having suffered a foot fracture that sidelined him after the fourth game of the season, Patton sat out virtually all of his rookie year with the 49ers, and had one reception for zero yards prior to the final regular season game against the Arizona Cardinals.

However, Patton made a substantial impact in the Arizona game, most notably by catching a 29-yard sideline pass on the final drive of the game, which enabled the 49ers' winning field goal. Patton also sprinted for 26 yards on the first 49er series in the contest as well as throwing an important block later in the first quarter that helped create a long reception by fellow receiver Anquan Boldin.[5][6] Coach Harbaugh praised Patton's comeback from his injury and stated he was "excited" by Patton's prospects. The 49ers had been limited by the lack of a full complement of receiving options during most of the 2013 season.[7]

Patton had no receptions in his first NFL playoff game in Green Bay, but made a notable 23-yard reception against the Carolina Panthers in his second post season experience, for the game's initial first down.[8]
