“It’s gotta be the socks.” Former Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson is having himself quite the Sunday, and his choice of foot apparel is only part of the story.
The Vikings wide receiver and return specialist made some noise when he took the field prior to his game against Arizona wearing socks featuring pictures of… Cordarrelle Patterson.

And though the 2013 first-round selection has been considered by many to be a disappointment through the first four years of his career, he turned all that pregame attention into a platform to show the football world that he’s still pretty fast.
During the game against the Cardinals, Patterson returned a kickoff 104 yards for a touchdown:

It remains to be seen if Patterson will ever be able to turn himself into more than a kick return specialist who occasionally contributes offensively, but Tennessee fans will likely never grow tired of seeing him put on this kind of show at the next level.
