The headline to this blog entry will open a lot of Vikings fans’ eyes. Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson is currently viewed by many as the top WR prospectin the 2013 NFL Draft. Whether he truly is the top prospect or whether he actually is the first WR taken is a debate for another day.
For the time being, check out the 5 teams NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks identifies as potential landing spots for the super-athletic Patterson. Hint: the Vikings are one of them. But if you’re a huge Patterson-to-the-Vikings hopeful, you’re not going to like where the Vikings rank among the 5 teams. Because they hold the 23rd overall pick in the 1st round, the Vikings are last on this list. The top team (Miami) picks 12th overall and another team (St. Louis) has two 1st-round picks (#16 and #22) before the Vikings have their 1st-round choice.
If you want some alternatives at WR should the Vikings go that way in the 1st round, check out what NFL Network’s Mike Mayock had to say while appearing on Voice of the Vikings Radio Network Paul Allen’s 9-noon radio show on KFAN. Also, check out our Senior Bowl coverage from a couple weeks ago, as we identified a talented crop of WRs down in Mobile.
