Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson sounds confident that he will make some big plays this season.

The explosive wideout spoke highly of his abilities on a recent episode of NFL Fan Pass. Via NFL.com

"I'm going to be a top-five playmaker," Patterson said. "I'm a playmaker, I like to make plays. Like I tell them, just get the ball in my hands I feel like I'm special with it. I just like to do special things with the ball."

The 23-year-old Patterson was one of the league's top rookies last season, hauling in 45 receptions for 469 yards and four TDs and rushing 12 times for 158 yards and three scores. Patterson also led the NFL with a 32.4-yard kick return average and ran back two kicks for touchdowns.
