2013 NFL Draft: Minnesota Vikings Select Cordarrelle Patterson

With the #29 pick in the NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have traded their pick to the Minnesota Vikings who select Cordarrelle Patterson out of Tennessee.

With their 3rd pick in the 1st round, this team is showing that they want to win. Picking up another possible starter across Greg Jennings who signed with the Minnesota Vikings from the Green Bay Packers. A speedy wide receiver, good body control, has great field awareness, catches the ball using his body, needs to work on his hands. A player who you could possibly line up in the backfield like they did with Percy Harvin and run some plays with him as a half back.

Could also become a punt/kick returner, not exactly Percy Harvin, but could have some sort of impact for this team like Harvin did.

The St. Louis Rams are on the clock.
