Anthony Richardson Draft Profile


The thing that immediately stands out about Anthony Richardson is his athleticism. His physical tools were proven after running a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at 244 lbs. As is the case with most rookie quarterbacks, Richardson should have the ability to rely on his legs early in his career when the offense breaks down. When running, Richardson has a penchant for running through defenders, as opposed to running around them. Being mobile, Richardson has shown an excellent ability to throw on the run after escaping the pocket. Richardson has a strong arm, maybe the strongest in the draft.


Richardson’s accuracy can be erratic at times. He lacks consistency in making every throw look like the last throw. Even with his mobile abilities, Richardson has shown a tendency to hang onto the ball too long and try to extend plays, resulting in sacks. Accuracy is a major concern. Throwing mechanics can also be improved upon. Richardson has also only started for Florida for one season.
