Draft Scout News
06/16/16 - WR Cordarrelle Patterson has gained a lot of praise from a coaching staff that hasn't done much of that in recent years. The Vikings declined to pick up Patterson's fifth-year option as a 2012 first-round pick, so he's entering the final year of his rookie deal. An excellent kick returner, Patterson never progressed as a receiver. Last year, the team flat-out gave up on him as a receiver, sticking him on the bench, where he finished the year with only two catches. Patterson is working with the second unit and, by all accounts, is trying very hard and limiting his mental errors. Head coach Mike Zimmer praised Patterson for his commitment this offseason and for finally realizing the importance of running precise and well-timed routes.
11/30/15 - WR Cordarrelle Patterson, the former first-round draft pick, did not play a single offensive snap for the first time since Week 2. He has only two catches for 15 yards on the season.
11/23/15 - KR Cordarrelle Patterson had 103 return yards to tie the team's career record for most games with at least 100 yards in kickoff return yards (12). He's tied with David Palmer, who posted his total from 1994-2000.
11/15/15 - KR Cordarrelle Patterson returned a second-quarter kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown Sunday in a 30-14 victory against Oakland. Patterson fielded K Sebastian Janikowski's squib kick into a stiff wind angled toward the left sideline, got a wall of blockers and turned on the jets, sprinting into the end zone. It was his first kick return for a touchdown since 2013 when he returned two as a rookie.
11/13/15 - WR/KR Cordarrelle Patterson (shoulder) was added to the injury report on Thursday and was limited in practice. He's expected to be healthy enough to play.
