Cordarrelle Patterson Turning Heads, As Usual, In Vikings OTA's

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson can do things — special things.

Fans of the Tennessee Volunteers can certainly attest to the former Vol’s natural playmaking abilities. So it should come as no surprise that the second-year wide receiver is already turning heads in Vikings’ OTA’s.


One of the offense’s top plays of the day was a belated drag route by Cordarrelle Patterson, who caught a bullet from Cassel and blew by both Xavier Rhodes and Blanton before they could get their hands on him. 

It looks like Patterson is picking up where he left off in his rookie season.

Patterson accounted for nine Vikings touchdowns (four receiving, three rushing and two kick-returns) last season, in route to a Pro-Bowl selection.

The native of Rock Hill, SC (also the hometown of 2014 first overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney) is as a good as anyone with the ball in his hands in the open field. Patterson’s ability to make people miss is what makes him so special.

Check out what he did as a rookie last season.

And how about a trip down memory lane for all the Tennessee fans.

Patterson is going to be fun to watch as he continues to progress. Talent like his is something that’s nearly impossible to find.
