Special moment for the QB
The prolific dual-threat quarterback finished his collegiate career with 24 passing touchdowns and 12 rushing scores, while throwing for over 3,000 yards.
Richardson’s eye-popping combine and pro day results vaulted his stock up the draft boards. Weighing in at 6’ 4” and 244 pounds, he clocked a 4.43 40 yard dash. He set two quarterback records in the broad jump and vertical jump, with a 10’ 9” broad jump and 40.5” vertical. Richardson also showed off his arm strength throwing multiple deep balls and even a ball off the roof at the UF pro day.
Richardson will look to be the face of the Colts franchise, who have been struggling to find consistent quarterback play since Andrew Luck’s retirement.
