3. Jordan Matthews, Eagles
Matthews is the first rookie to make this list. The second-round pick was a pass-catching machine at Vanderbilt, and he is expected to contribute to the offense right away. Matthews has reportedly shined in OTAs and training camp, so he may eventually supplant Jeremy Maclin or Riley Cooper as a starter if he continues to improve.
2. Cordarrelle Patterson, Vikings
Patterson is being viewed as one of the leading breakout candidates in the NFL, and this is for a good reason. Patterson contributed to the Vikings’ return game right away as a rookie, and he showed a lot of promise as a receiver. With his explosiveness and a year of experience, the 2013 first-round pick could easily be the next Percy Harvin. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner already has big plans for Patterson, and the speed demon will be even more dangerous if the Vikings improve their quarterback play.
