This guy can flat out fly. Oh he can catch too.
Can he return punts/kicks?
Better not take him in the 2nd. 3rd round pick wouldn't be a horrible idea though, he's got crazy potential.
Paul Richardson | Wide Receiver
Team: Colorado Buffaloes
Ht / Wt: 6'1' / 175
Colorado WR Paul Richardson will meet with the Jets this week, reports draft insider Tony Pauline.
"Second-round target?" Pauline wonders. Richardson's wiry frame (6'0/175 pounds) makes blocking and getting past press coverage a chore, but he's dynamite in the open field. "Uses the sidelines well, possesses good eye-hand coordination, and consistently makes catches away from his frame," Pauline writes in a scouting report. "Gets up in a crowd and fights to come away with the ball. Runs crisp routes, separates from defenders, and comes back into the clearing to make himself an available target. Plays with quickness and can run to the deep throw. A big-play receiver with a consistent game." Apr 20 - 8:56 PM

This guy reminds of a taller DJax.
I love his speed!!!!! We need a PURE speed guy to take the top off defenses to open it up for Witten, Dez and Williams. I'm on board because he can play.
Would loveeeee this pick. It would make it harder for team to completely dictate the coverage around Dez. He is a true deep threat.. Give me him in the 3rd.
I'm on board as well. We've been deficient on speed for years now
If you want speed.
You can get a smaller WR, Lesser known WR, from a lesser School that has Plenty of speed and some return ability. And you can get him later in the draft.
He is small and does not have the best hands. But he has speed to burn, can play in the return game and he would probably be able to be grabbed in the 7th or possibly as UDRFA.
WR John Brown Pittsburgh State.
Just what we need - a WR who is fast and can't catch. We should of signed Robert Meachem if that was the case. He is larger and has about the same 40 time.
I know Dwayne Harris can, he has shown himself to be one of the better returnmen in the NFL
I like this guy, wouldn't mind it at all if he was the WR pick.
I do, however, think the idea that we need to get a "deep threat" is way overblown even though it never hurts to add more.
Rookie 7th rounder or UDRFA is going to be much cheaper, even if we signed Meachem to a vet Minimum. This would also be a good backup for Harris in the return game.
I would imagine he would be a practice squad player.
Not in the 2nd, please.
Richardson is a very interesting pick. He's small and I'm not sure if he can put on much weight beyond his current 175 or so. I would not take him in the 2nd round though. I would take him in the 4th but he may not be there. He's a heck of a football play but his weight is a real problem IMO. He's a legit 4.32 guy though.
COMPLETELY disagree... Doesn't make sense to me.
This is a message board...You Can't disagree with me let alone COMPLETELY disagree with me.
I like Thomas from Oregon more. I realize they are different players with Thomas listed as a RB. Sounds like Richardson might be able to line up at the X, Z and W though.
You have to game a guy like that but I think a physical CB could disrupt him enough to cause problems. If you moved him then he might get out better. You might have to spy him in those situations. A LB couldn't possibly cover the guy.
He might get hurt at that weight but Beasley seems to take it pretty well. Interesting player.
Thomas is the type of RB I could see them liking in so much as he would be a threat in the pass game coming out of the backfield. I could see the new OC liking that type of back.
However there was something on the last talking cowboys show and one of the guys said that the RB coach had set up two meet with or has already met with two RBs. I want to say LSU Jeremy Hill was one but can not remember the other and not 100% sure on the first. Might have to go back and see if I can find out the names later.
Supposedly we have shown interest in Charles Sims, Storm Johnson and Jerick McKinnon (probably more as a CB) as well as the backs who attended Dallas Day.
