Patterson is very green, still. As Erik Ainge said on his radio show, "CP is literally the worst route runner I've ever seen." Still, when he has the ball in his hands, he's unstoppable.
I'm rooting for a solid DT at 14, but I really think CP will be a superstar in the league.

Patterson. He has the potential to be elite. I don't see that with Hopkins. I think he'll be good, just not elite.

Intersting analysis from a Vols fan. His route running will definitely be worked on at the next level. I think his potential is worth a top 15 pick for sure, definitely don't see any DTs that warrant a pick.

I would be content with this kid playing tonight, Shariff Floyd in the second round.

If it wasn't the off field issues, he'll yeah!
I really think that Rogers will be a nasty beast in the league. Whoever isn't afraid (not JR) that take a chance on him will get helluva player.

The more I watch of Patterson the more I drool over the prospect of Cam throwing to him on Sundays. He may be overtaking Sheldon Richardson as my favorite prospect for us. Just an absolutely sick athlete with an elite skillset. You watch him play and he just 'looks' like an NFL player, if that makes any sense. I'm sure most of you know what I'm on about.

It's insane how talented that Tennessee WR group was and could have been if Da'Rick Rogers wouldn't have been an idiot. Love Patterson, and Rogers had a decent showing at Tennessee Tech. I'd love a combo of either 1st- Chance Warmack 2nd- Da'Rick Rogers or 1st- Cordarrelle Patterson 2nd- Sharrif Floyd. Justin Hunter is just too much of a risk with that ACL for me to realistically want him.

Im not sure I remb a player as nasty with the ball in his hands as Patterson.

Indeed. He's got the "wiggle" as they say. That's a good way to spot a good player.

I was watching a video earlier tonight and the thing that stuck out the most is his vision with the ball in his hands. He was making cuts before the defender he was juking even knew what had happened. It's like he can anticipate their angle before they even attempt a tackle.

Take a look:

Good thread

I think this draft may at first seem like it doesn't have a strong 1st round wideout class but that really may not be the case. Yeah, there's no obvious superstar a la Calvin or AJ Green which are hard to come by anyways, but there is a ton of NFL ready talent imo with the first 8 or so WR prospects. I'd even include Cobi Hamilton, Jake Matthews, and Quinton Patton on a 2nd round watch list.

Patterson's ceiling is ridiculous imo. Once he gets the ball, he's gonna wreck sh*t up. All he needs to do is sure up some fundamentals and he could be damn good. I defintiely see him being a 1st rounder.

Hopkins' bowl performance no doubt will push him up draft boards and it's hard not to imagine once the combine and workouts roll around anything that would prevent him from rising.

Include Austin, Allen, & T. Williams and all of those prospects can easily go in the first. Add the fact in that our new GM may want to do something interesting with his first ever draft pick and I think Patterson & Hopkins actually could make as much sense at 14 as Allen (who is the most well rounded wideout imo). Call me crazy

Just remember how wild things can get on draft day and how many rankings and projections can be off of what teams actually do

Patterson is ridiculous, but i see a lot of mocks saying 2nd rounder. Would he really be worth 14 overall??
