BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons who totaled 55/4/5 as a senior after 66/3/7 during his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized corner who is best facing the action. Fluid transitioning with opponents, reads the receivers' eyes and gets his head back around to make a play on the ball. Alert and works well with safeties. Possesses a closing burst of speed.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in man situations with his back to the ball, and will lose assignments altogether. Tends to side-shuffle rather than backpedal.
ANALYSIS: Hard-working on the field, Richardson offers possibilities as a dime back in a zone system.
