Draft Scout News
08/25/14 - WR Cordarrelle Patterson is getting more comfortable with offensive coordinator Norv Turner's numbered system. Patterson said he spoke with Cowboys Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin to get a better feel for how to visualize Turner's number-based play calls. It sure worked on one deep ball in Kansas City. Patterson beat the defense by a step, located Matt Cassel's perfectly-placed pass and quickly reached up to pluck it out of the air in stride en route to a 53-yard score.
07/30/14 - WR-KR Cordarrelle Patterson will have no lasting effects from the foot injury that has slowed him at the start of camp. He watched the first practice on Friday and then worked with the athletic trainers on a nearby field the next two days. On Monday night, he put full pads on and was allowed to participate in a few individual drills. He wasn't running at full speed. An off day on Tuesday also helped the recuperative process.
12/26/13 - WR-KR Cordarrelle Patterson has scored a touchdown in each of the past four games. He's the first Vikings rookie to do so since Randy Moss scored one in seven straight games in 1998.
12/23/13 - KR Cordarrelle Patterson, the NFL's leading kickoff returner, had 143 more yards on four returns. He needs just four more yards in the season finale to break the team record of 1,345 set by Buster Rhymes in 1985.
12/10/13 - WR/KR Cordarrelle Patterson had a team season-high 141 yards receiving against the Ravens. The 141 yards receiving are the most by a Vikings rookie receiver since Randy Moss had 163 against the Cowboys in 1998. Meanwhile, Patterson's 1,199 kickoff return yards are a league-high this season and rank third all-time among Vikings rookies. He needs 147 kickoff return yards to break the Vikings single-season record of 1,345 set by George "Buster" Rhymes in 1985.
