The NFL jury is out on Anthony Richardson.
The QB out of Florida has been a quick riser on most NFL Draft boards, yet some are still undecided about his prospect as an NFL player.
However, NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe believes he could be a superstar in the making.
In a recent appearance on Good Morning Football, Wolfe raved about Richardson’s work ethic, stating that he’s been working restlessly on those short throws to fix his mechanics and shut down the doubts about his accuracy.
Wolfe also claimed Richardson is the most athletic QB in NFL Scouting Combine history, praising his arm strength, mobility, and ability to launch rockets.
Per Wolfe, Richardson also tested quite well in the interviews and cognitive tests, so there’s absolutely no reason to think a team won’t take a chance on him early in the first round.
"You get an athletic guy who is the most athletic QB we've ever seen tested at an NFL combine… You've got that size, that ability, and you can get more out of him. A team's just gotta take a chance on him."@CameronWolfe got an inside look at Anthony Richardson in Jacksonville pic.twitter.com/fFHLIpWkcz

Truth be told, Richardson looks like the ultimate high-risk/high-reward pickup for every single QB-needy team.
The intangibles are often what defines a player’s career, and if his work ethic and determination to improve are as solid as Wolfe claims they are, then this young man could end up being a Hall of Famer.
Not many players can move the way he moves or throw as fast and quickly as he does, and his ability to change directions and operate outside of the pocket could translate to the next level.
Hopefully, he’ll end up being as good as he can and not another impressive athlete with remarkable physical traits.NEXT: UCLA QB Prospect Has Visited With 6 NFL Teams
