2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-26-2014 by Rob Warner

POTENTIAL SUPER STAR: The Vikings traded back into the 1st round of the 2013 draft and selected the Tennessee alum at pick #29. The rookie did more than justify GM Rick Spielman's move as he came on strong in the 2nd half of the season (amassed 375 total yards and six touchdowns over his final five games). The Vikings used CP sparingly in the first half of his rookie season (averaged just 15 snaps per game over first seven contests) but they came to their senses in the second half of the season using the dynamic play maker for an average of 38 snaps per game over the final nine match ups. He finished his rookie season with 45 catches for 469 yards (10.4 YPC) and 12 carries for 158 yards. CP had a total of seven offensive touchdowns (four receiving and three rushing). Patterson earned a Pro Bowl trip as the NFC kick returner (led league with 32.4 yards per kick return and two return touchdowns) and should emerge as the #1 target in the passing game in 2014 placing him on the WR2 radar heading into his sophomore season. Many receivers (such as Vincent Jackson and Josh Gordon) have enjoyed elite production under Norv Turner-led offenses, which should vault Patterson onto many breakout lists for 2014. The Vikings are rumored to be moving Jennings inside more often this season which will allow Patterson to man the outside WR slot where he can fully utilize his game breaking speed (4.42 forty time at the combine). His current ADP has him coming off the board in rounds 3/4 as a solid WR2. The Vikings will remain one of the more run focused offenses in the league but with an expanded role as the go to weapon in the passing game, CP has a very real chance at 70-80 catches, 800-900 yards and 7-10 touchdowns -- especially if the Vikings receive better QB play from Matt Cassel or rookie Teddy Bridgewater.

3.12 DraftTV.com - @ShanePHallam - Swing for the fences! Cordarrelle feels like this year's Josh Gordon or Alshon Jeffery. He was a top WR toward the end of last year and the Norv Turner offensive scheme is perfect for Patterson. It is a risky WR1 choice, but it could pay huge dividends.

3.05 KFFL - I don't believe in Zac Stacy. Peyton Manning crossed my mind, but Patterson gave me three explosive pass catchers.
