Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee Volunteers (6-3, 205)
After trading away Percy Harvin, the Vikings replace him with the receiver who possesses the best combination of size, strength and speed in Cordarrelle Patterson. Few big receivers in the NFL possess Patterson's explosive open field running ability, which makes him a legit touchdown threat every time he touches the ball. While there are concerns about his ability to handle the complexities of an NFL playbook, if used correctly, Patterson could be the big-play weapon the Vikings desperately need.
