Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado

Seahawks, Round 2. Was a redshirt junior. I recently saw someone compare him to Golden Tate, and now he goes to the team that just lost Golden Tate. Seattle isn’t exactly an offensive powerhouse, but he definitely fills a need there as a complementary receiver.

Positives: Adequate height for the position. Good game speed and above-average track speed and acceleration for the position. Above-average vertical leap and general lower body explosiveness. Quick feet allow him to get off press coverage.

Negatives: Slight and slim build. Redshirted 2012 for torn ACL from April 2012. Doesn’t look too comfortable tracking passes over his inside shoulder. Below-average hand size. Below-average ability to change directions in Combine testing. Doesn’t look comfortable on contested passes. Lacks quickness in and out of his breaks.

Projection: Though Seattle is probably not going to make any of their receivers into fantasy powerhouses, there should be enough for him to do there that he puts up WR3 numbers, with WR2 potential. Feel free to draft in Round 2 of dynasty rookie drafts.
