The Phinsider's video review of 2013 NFL Draft prospects continues with a look at Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, a JUCO transfer who absolutely lit up SEC defenses in 2012, his lone season as a Volunteer.
Some things to note while watching Patterson go to work on what can best be described as a talent-diverse collection of college defenses:
- Patterson has decent top-end speed, but it's his vision and awareness that make him so dangerous once the ball is in his hands. The guy is the definition of the word "slasher."
- While he has the route-running ability and YAC acumen to be a different maker in the West Coast offense, Patterson's big body and upper-level athleticism could get him looks from teams in search of a true No. 1 receiver. Don't be surprised if he's the first receiver drafted In April.
- Feel free to mute the sound while watching this video. I did.
