His physical skill set is pretty similar to Joe Webb. If both of them can develop as receivers it would present some amazing mismatches for defenses. Heck if either one can develop as a reciever it would present a mismatch.
I'm ready for Randy Moss 2.0.

Why Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson Has 'Bust' Written All over Him
Wide receivers, in general, take longer to develop than most positions. They have a significant amount of learning to do at the NFL level. They need to learn how to get off the line of scrimmage, specifically beat press-man coverage, not to give away their routes while running them and then to determine what their route will be based off of cornerback and safety leverage.
And that's all on just one play.
It's why many wide receivers struggle transitioning from college to the pros. It's also why the bust rate is higher than at any other position. But can Patterson defy this pattern of misfortune?
I have my doubts.
Leave it to B/R...
I'm excited to see what he can do in the NFL. Has so much potential. Really hope he pans out.
