With zero drops this past season, Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick undoubtedly has one of the best set of hands in the NFL.
That is unless you ask Pro Football Focus.
On Tuesday, the Broncos wideout dragged the analytics site on Twitter for excluding him among a list of top receivers in the NFL in terms of drop percentage.
My tweet must be coming soon since mine is 0.0% 🥱 https://t.co/OqhW0zICly

Patrick managed not to drop a single pass in 2020, joining just six other NFL players with a 0.0 percent drop rate last season.
Among those half-dozen players, Patrick had the most targets (79), starts (15) and receiving yards (742). His six touchdown catches and 51 receptions ranked second among the group — just behind Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan (11 touchdowns, 52 receptions).
Per Pro Football Focus on Twitter, the top receivers in the NFL last season in terms of drop percentage were Davante Adams and DeAndre Hopkins at 0.9 percent, followed by Allen Robinson at 1.0 percent and Cole Beasley at 1.2 percent.
For what it’s worth, Pro Football Reference has Adams at 0.7 percent, Hopkins at 1.3 percent, Beasley at 1.9 percent and Robinson at 2.0 percent.
Rallying behind their teammate, however, several Broncos players tweeted their support of Patrick after the PFF snub.

- Could Ja'Wuan James be on the brink of a Garett Bolles-like turnaround?
- The Broncos need to move on from Von Miller
- The tea leaves suggest that the Broncos might be tanking in 2021
- Broncos open to “any position” at pick No. 9, including QB
- Case for Kareem Jackson being cap casualty grows stronger
- If Paton gets his way, the 2021 Broncos will look a lot like 2020
