Conference: Big South
HT: 5-10.5
WT: 165
40 Time: 4.53
Biography: Transfer from Michigan who started the past two seasons and was awarded All-Conference honors after each campaign. Senior totals included 42/1/7 after 39/3/4 as a junior.

Positives: Undersized and explosive cornerback with solid ball skills. Fluid pedaling in reverse, displays smooth footwork in every direction and plays with a good degree of suddenness. Quick flipping his hips when transitioning to run with opponents off the line, effectively runs downfield with receivers and displays a nice burst to the action. Quickly closes to the ball and displays a sense of timing and anticipation.

Negatives: Small, struggles against larger receivers, and lacks strength at the point of attack. Tends to plays soft in underneath coverage.

Analysis: Richards was a solid small school cornerback who consistently had opposing quarterbacks looking away from him. He has size limitations yet possesses enough skills to make it as a dime back in the NFL.

Projection: FA
