BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 46/13.5/7. Junior-year totals included 25/8/2.5.
POSITIVES: College defensive end with potential at outside linebacker at the next level. Explodes off the snap displaying great first-step quickness, plays with good pad level, and immediately changes direction or alters his angle of attack. Fast out to the flanks, shows speed up the field, and possesses a burst of closing speed.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, slow shedding blocks, and handled by tight ends. Lacks instincts and overall awareness.
ANALYSIS: Displaying the ability to consistently make plays up the field, Richardson is a developmental prospect as a rush-linebacker in a 3-4 alignment.
