Cordarrelle Patterson made the most of his one season in Knoxville as he came to Tennessee as a 5 star recruit from Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. Patterson started his college career playing his freshman year of football at North Carolina Tech Christian Academy, but did not stay for a second year before transferring to Hutchinson CC for 2011. Patterson’s one season with the Volunteers was outstanding as he was involved in rushing, catching and returning punts and kickoffs for a total of 1,858 yards and 10 touchdowns. His tall 6’3” body and his ability to do many things will make him very popular in the draft.
Physical route runner that isn’t afraid of contact, has good size and will go up and fight for the ball. Patterson has tremendous upside, but needs work in a lot of areas. Plays with great athleticism and explosive playmaking ability, could be the first receiver taken in draft. He shields defenders away from the ball well and shows above-average hands to bring in tough receptions.
Patterson needs to work on being precise in his route-running. He will play out of control at times and will try to do too much with the ball in his hands. He has shown tendencies he can be a little reckless and will have to learn how to play fast without getting out of control. Patterson will need to demonstrate better field awareness.
