Paul Richardson Jr-WR-Colorado

Richardson's 6-1, 170...kinda slender for the NFL. I'd counter him with DeVante Parker, 6-3, 205 from Louisville. He's a true playmaker and has great size with great hands. He caught his passes from Teddy Bridgewater, who looks very NFL-ready.
Being a CU alum I actually mentioned this guy before the season as a major sleeper. He has a TON of potential, but he is not a physical receiver by any means. Maybe he could put on weight and grow into NFL receiver but until then he would basically be limited to formations that could keep him from being jammed at the LOS.
One more thing... after reading through the entire thread, he does NOT resemble Desean Jackson in anyway shape or form if you had to compare him to anyone I would compare him Snoop Minnis from back in the day with florida state. But lets not be fooled, he should not be a 1st round pick, or even a 2nd round pick... earliest he should go is early 3rd round baring great senior bowls practices/game performance. He is very very developmental, needs help running crisper routes, needs help getting off the jam, and just needs a better overall game. By far the best offensive player for the buffs the past 4 years (1 year he was injured) but that isnt saying much...

Parker seems slow to me. He's great at jump balls though
He reminds me alot of Chad Johnson.
I think this needs a bump,
I was watching over his highlight film...
This is a guy i want, comparable to emmanuel sanders? http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1737644/paul-richardson yes please

Also has that agility to break coverage and get open down field

If he could put on some weight and be taller version of TY Hilton I'd be down but right now he's lean as f**k.
If we want speed, this could be the pick. He has big play ability too. As a CU guy maybe I'm a little biased, but he was on fire early in the year. Everyone knew where the ball was going and he still produced. He separates like few WRs in the draft.
I like his ability to score from anywhere. I can't see him taking a starting spot for us down the road without putting on some weight and showing an ability to block NFL CBs consistently. Would be cool spending a third on him, with the hope that we do some more 3 WR sets.

he's a very athletic runner; that will help him navigate the field better than the average bear.
Let's compare Richardson to Moncrief or Matthews...last two run just about as fast and have 30-40 lbs on him. Who makes more sense for the Niners...it's not even close.
At 6-0 175, the best comparison I can make is Richardson's maximum ceiling may be something similar to a Marvin Harrison type (not a bad ceiling to have), if he can stay healthy. Harrison had the exact same dimensions.
Least favorite prospect at Wideout to thin and if he dont bulk up he'll get jammed at the line of scrimmage all the time, we need playmakers and difference makers asap.

Would he be totally out-muscled by NFL CB's and more specifically Seattle's DB?

yep,

The ability of these potential draft picks to beat press coverage in the NFL is under valued, We learned that with Jenkins

If the CB always gets you off your route at the line, doesnt matter how fast you are

Guys like Matthews, Adams and Landry im paying attention to, from what ive read they excel at it
