2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Cordarrelle Patterson
There may be some reasons for concern over the fact that Cordarrelle Patterson only had one year of experience at the college level while playing at Tennessee, but look at everything the wide receiver had to overcome leading up to that point and it’s clear he has the work ethic to make it at the NFL level.
The 2013 NFL Draft is filled with plenty of talented wide receivers, but Patterson is certainly one to keep an eye on heading into the 2013 season as he seems capable of making an impact as a rookie. Don’t let his inexperience playing Division-I football fool you–Patterson has proven he’s capable of overcoming any obstacle standing in his way to get to the next level and he appears ready to do whatever it takes to have a successful rookie season.
He may need to work on his skills as a route runner, but he has the type of quickness that causes nightmares for just about any opponent. Along with his quickness, Patterson has the size and strength to make him first-round material for any team in need of adding another wide receiver for the 2013 season.
There are plenty of teams in need of help at the wide receiver position that look to take advantage of this year’s draft class and Patterson will certainly be one of them. If he can continue his work ethic from his one season with Tennessee, the sky seems like the limit for Patterson heading into his rookie season.
