    Molding Patterson into a star

    Vikings' mission: Molding Cordarrelle Patterson into a star

    The conversation that sold Leslie Frazier on Cordarrelle Patterson's ability to play in the NFL had little to do with football.

    Is Cordarrelle Patterson Too Raw To Make An Immediate Impact At Receiver?

    Patterson’s inexperience and lack of knowledge may keep him on the sidelines more often than he is on the field.

    I put up a few quotes out of this link in another thread so I won't do them again here.

    Suffice it to say I like what the coaches are saying and I like what the kid is saying. Judging from a few guys I know that had access to the 3 day training event, he really looks good. Alot better than the other guys that were there.

    I know most will say, yea, against scrubs, but if he is ALOT better than them, he should be pretty close to what we need at the next level.

    Only concern I have is if he can learn to run the route tree and see (and make) the same adjustments Ponder see's and makes.

    I guess, but if that is the case why did Austin go ahead of him? Both are dynamic play makers. Both can play the slot, heck Patterson should be able to play all three were Austin will be limited a bit.

    In the end, I hope your right.

    My comment has nothing to do with Austin, and was going to be a jab at Ponder, but that would be too easy

    But here it is anyway.

    Not sure I want anybody making the same adjustments as ponder

    My apologies. Slow on the uptake this morning I guess. I completely missed the Ponder thing.

    I was focused on Patterson learning something and you saying it was easy which brought the Austin aspect into the discussion.

    Back to Ponder, why wouldn't you want your WR's to make the same adjustments that your QB is seeing? Are you saying he is wrong on his pre-snap reads?

    Probably why Percy was unhappy after catching 62 passes that they both read the same way last year.
