Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is a raw route-runner who probably will need many of his touches manufactured out of the gate, not unlike Percy Harvin did the past four seasons. That leaves Jerome Simpson as the starting split end and Greg Jennings as the flanker, with Jarius Wright a situational threat in the vertical passing game.
Patterson is apparently too raw to start for the Vikings, who desperately need a playmaker opposite Greg Jennings. We'll see how he progresses in OTAs. Don't be surprised if he's starting Week 1, even if it's out of pure desperation.
