NFL | Cordarrelle Patterson a concern for teams

There are reportedly some red flags regarding Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson's value heading into the NFL Draft. Evaluators love his size and athleticism, but he also has some mental hurdles to overcome. "Mentally, it's going to be a project," according to one league personnel man. "Running routes, he doesn't know how to do any of that stuff. You may have to keep it simple for him, but this is football. It's not building a super glider or anything." An AFC personnel director added, "Toward the end of the year, they started to go away from running Patterson down the field on routes and gave him the ball on reverses and screens, even as a halfback at times. That starts to put a question mark in your head. Why? Well, there's reasons, and it's just not being as proficient with his route-running and not having the ability to make adjustments during the game."
