NFL Mock Draft 2013: Seahawks select Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Seahawks add another explosive playmaker on offense? Hey, why not?

Although their draft slot is hardly set in stone, SB Nation NFL draft editor Dan Kadar sees the Seahawks selecting Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson in his latest mock draft.

Here's Kadar's reasoning for Seattle taking Patterson over the rest of his remaining wide receiver peers:

"Patterson was a sensation in his only season at Tennessee. An all-purpose star, Patterson could be used in a variety of ways at the next level. Patterson is a big play vertical threat from the slot and could be utilized on kick and punt return coverage."

If Kadar's prediction is correct, Seahawks fans would surely be ecstatic. The 6'3 junior has been climbing up draft boards recently and Mel Kiper Jr. even went as far as to call Patterson a potential top-5 talent if he stays for his senior year.

If Seattle landed Patterson, Russell Wilson would get the luxury of working with two huge vertical threats when you factor in Sidney Rice. And that would be a scary proposition for anyone looking to stop an already explosive offense.

Patterson caught 46 passes for 778 yards and five touchdowns this season for the Volunteers. He also rushed 25 times for 308 yards and three touchdowns while adding two more touchdowns on returns.
