Richardson – a potential steal? Craig Thomas

Colorado receiver Paul Richardson knows a couple of thing scouts want to see from him.

“I’ve got to continue to gain weight and continue to get stronger,” Richardson said.

How skinny was Richardson at CU?

“This season I think they had me listed at 165 or 170. I was only 161 this season, 162 at the most,” the 6-0 Richardson said. “I’ve already gained over 14 pounds. I’ve shown I can gain weight. I weighed in at 175.9 (at the Combine). I plan on continuing to gain weight and getting stronger.”

If Richardson can get bigger and stronger, the man who set so many records at CU, could turn out to be a steal for some team in perhaps the third round.

Richardson scored 21 touchdowns at Colorado before leaving school early for the draft.

He ran a 4.4 forty at the combine.

Who does he compare himself as a wide receiver?

“A split between Mike Wallace and DeSean Jackson right now,” Richardson said. “I’m trying to come in and make a name for myself.”

If he continues to get bigger and stronger, he might just do that.
