PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

At the next level, Richardson could fit into a spread-based offense that combines RPO and zone-read concepts allowing him to use his mobility and athleticism to exploit defenses. Alternatively, he could fit into an offense that emphasizes the run game with a lot of play-action pass with rollouts to get him on the edge of the defense. A team with a solid run game will open up the downfield play action throws where Richardson can use his big arm to stretch a defense vertically.

SCOUTING REPORT

At 6-4 236lbs, Richardson embodies the word "prototype." Richardson has a big arm and excellent athleticism. His game translates best in a pro-spread offense that blends a mix of play action, RPO's and zone reads. He is an escape artist who is at his best when on the move, creating out of structure. Richardson is considered a developmental talent with notable accuracy issues that must be addressed. His best fit in the NFL will be on a team with a creative head coach or OC. If he can land somewhere where he can sit out for a season, allowing him to learn from a veteran QB, it could enable him to get better acclimated with the speed of the NFL game.
