|Draft Prediction:||Third Round|
2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Paul Richardson, WR , Colorado
Thin and struggled with durability. Missed the entire 2012 season with a torn ACL. Recovered very well and has absolutely put himself back on the map after an excellent '13 campaign. Very fast. Ran a 4.40 40-yard dash at the combine and looked very smooth during the drills. Above-average hands and can secure the ball away from his body. Tracks the ball well on deep routes and can watch the ball into his hands over both shoulders. Strength is a concern and can be hand-checked off his route. Hears footsteps over the middle. May still have worries about re-injuring himself seriously.
Enough burst and explosion to separate from defenders. Average with the ball in his hands and will typically look to evade rather than challenge for more yards. Good lower half body control. Good leaper. Not a No. 1 receiver.
Richardson projects as a third round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Inconsistency may limit his playing time as a rookie. A redshirt would be necessary. Third rounder in dynasty rookie drafts. Should go undrafted in redrafts.
