Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Vikings' picks: 1/29 - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, 6-2, 215, Tennessee...An electric playmaker that the Vikings believe can be, in time, the kind of versatile weapon that Percy Harvin was as a receiver, runner and kick returner. With little of note behind Greg Jennings at receiver, the Vikings will use the raw Patterson as a deep threat and kick returner right off the bat. Having played only one year of major college football after a stint in junior college, Patterson will need a year to mature as a route runner. - The Sports Xchange
