- ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 11. *Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee: Of this year's skill-position players, Patterson presents the most "wow" factor. In his first season at the FBS level, Patterson (6-2, 217) dominated the SEC to the tune of 154.83 all-purpose yards a game, easily the most of any player in the power conference. Some believe he's the most dynamic kick returner to enter the NFL since Devin Hester. However, concerns remain about his work ethic and ability to handle a complicated NFL offense. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
