wide receiver, Tennessee
A JUCO star at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, Patterson had a breakout year for the Vols in 2012, when No. 1 wideout Da’Rick Rogers was unceremoniously dismissed from the team last summer. Patterson’s numbers—46 catches, five touchdowns—won’t wow you, but his athletic ability will.
I hate saying the term “tremendous upside,” but Patterson has … well, tremendous upside. The 6-1, 215-pound burner also broke several SEC return-yard records in 2012. Danny Amendola could be back, Brian Quick was drafted 33rd overall in 2012, and there’s a lot of optimism around Chris Givens. Patterson would be the new No. 1.
