      HT:     6-3                WT:     205 YR:     Jr                  Pos:   WR           Notables: 247sports No. 1 overall JUCO prospect going into 2012 2011 Jayhawk Conference Offensive Player of the Year So far in 2012: 24 rec, 340 yds, 3tds / 13 rush, 208 yds, 2tds / 12kr, 34.8 avg, 1td Pros: Good size Very shifty and quick makes cuts with precision while running full speed Exceptional ability to see the field and run with the ball after the catch Good hand usage when fighting off DBs Lack of big college football experience doesn’t seem to affect his performance Great balance and posture when going in and out of cuts Not afraid to make plays across the middle Shows great separation speed on the field Effective in the short, mid, and long passing game Shows exceptional return skills Seems to get the release he desires against press coverage Strong hands, keeps defenders from swatting or pulling ball away after catch Cons: Needs to learn to use his body more when trying to get into position Has a tendency to catch the ball with his pads at times Will only have one year of high level college football experience Still polishing his route running Thoughts I have been very impressed by Cordarrelle this year. He does so many things well and has very few flaws in his game. He has the ability to get open using multiple techniques depending on the route he is running. He has exceptional vision after he has the ball in his hands with the ability to elude multiple defenders at any given time. He shows great field speed, which should increase along with his 40 time after strength and conditioning this past offseason and the upcoming offseason. Has great balance when going in and out of breaks all the while making cuts very quickly. He has great size but needs to learn how to use it more to his advantage when trying to get in position to make catches. I do believe he still has things to learn about the position itself which will come along as he gets more experience playing SEC football. By draft time I could see Patterson becoming a top 3 WR in the 2013 NFL draft if he brushes up a few flaws in his game. Watch Patterson in action!
