It’s all about the upside Juan… Cordarrelle Patterson School: Tennessee | Ht: 6-2 | Wt: 216 | 40: 4.42 | This draft is loaded with WR talent, but there isn’t a whole lot separating the top guys like in years past.  There is not an AJ Green hanging around, if that makes more sense, but one of the more intriguing athletes is Patterson.  He has the size, speed, and play making ability that teams will be drooling over, but they will have to be patient with him as he is not ready to step right in and start at the NFL level.  He does project as a down field threat that possesses vertical speed, but can also be a guy who can run the short to intermediate routes.  Patterson has very good size and is physical, so he can make contested catches in traffic.  He does possess good hands, but he does tend to try and make catches with his body which leads to easy drops. Cordarrelle only played one season at Tennessee after transferring from a Junior College, so he didn’t play against top level talent for very long.  Although he has good size, he was not pressed mush by college corners, so it remains to be seen if he can handle press coverage at the next level.  He did use his size to block well down field, which will serve him well at the next level.  Patterson shows a ton of explosiveness with the ball in his hands, but doesn’t show that same explosiveness when he is coming in and out of his routes.  He will need to be coached up as his skill level is a bit on the raw side, but his physical abilities are off the chart.  In a pass happy league that puts a premium on pass catchers, some team is going to spend a high first round pick on Patterson and in a year or two it could really pay off.

Why Cordarrelle Patterson Will Be An NFL Bust

Watching tape of the Tennessee product, there is no denying his explosiveness once the ball is in his hands, however, wasn't this the same conclusion of former Ohio State Buckeye Ted Ginn Jr.? Patterson consistently is a body catcher, and unnecessarily uses that as a safety blanket for catching the ball over...
