ESPN analyst Louis Riddick notes that Colorado WR Paul Richardson runs the "deep route tree" similar to DeSean Jackson.

"The way Richardson runs deep route tree reminds (me) of DeSean. Can carry speed through the "move point" as good as anyone," Riddick tweeted. Maturity and characters concerns aside, both Jackson and Richardson share the same type of frame (6'0/175 pounds) as well as explosiveness. If a team is looking for a vertical threat in the draft, Richardson could be had for a late second or third-round selection.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah compared Colorado WR Paul Richardson's play speed to Ted Ginn's.

"Richardson destroys pursuit angles when he gets in the open field. He has an extra gear." Jeremiah tweeted. The Colorado product can certainly get vertical downfield, which could earn him some Desean Jackson comparisons. We don't expect Richardson to be drafted in the top 50.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Colorado WR Paul Richardson has "speed to burn and (is) very light on his feet."

Richardson "looks like he's 160 lbs on tape - very lean," Brugler tweeted. The Colorado receiver measured in at 6'0/175 pounds at the NFL Combine. "I like the speed of Richardson too, but his arrest and dismissal from UCLA is rarely talked about - some character/maturity concerns there," Brugler added. Richardson has a chance to be a late second-round pick, but third-round is more likely.

Colorado WR Paul Richardson "should produce one of the best [40-yard dash] times at the combine," writes NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah.

Richardson was a track star in high school, and evaluators anticipate that he'll put on a show in quickness drills. "Though he has a very thin build, Richardson is an explosive athlete who bursts off the line of scrimmage in his release and can find another gear once the ball is in the air," wrote Jeremiah. "He has been compared to Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who has a similar frame and explosiveness. I don't think Richardson is quite as polished as Jackson as a route-runner, but I do believe he can match Jackson's top speed." Richardson's slender frame (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) and durability both detract from his stock, but we love his aforementioned home run speed and big-play ability.

Colorado senior DE Chidera Uzo-Diribe "opened eyes with his explosiveness and athleticism" at Shrine Game practices, according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

Uzo-Diribe (6-foot-3, 250-pounder) drew scouts' attention during 1-on-1 drills in which he displayed a devastating speed rush move which he complimented with an inside spin move. Uzo-Diribe also possesses long arms and a strong bull rush. "Watching Uzo-Diribe throughout the fall, I was encouraged by his quickness and athleticism," Brooks wrote. "Although he looks a little stiff turning the corner, Uzo-Diribe displays good initial quickness and movement skills. He was effective playing from an upright stance, but also showed some skills with his hand in the dirt." Brooks believes Uzo-Diribe needs to improve on his "inconsistent pad level and hand usage against the run." Because he plays too high, Uzo-Diribe sometimes has difficulty shedding blocks, especially on running plays when offensive lineman get into his pads.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Paul Richardson will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Richardson, who missed last season with a knee injury, has collected 79 catches for 1,289 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. His slender frame (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) will ensure durability questions persist, but we like Richardson's deep speed and big-play ability.

Colorado senior DE Chidera Uzo-Diribe has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Uzo-Diribe has started the last two and a half seasons at right defensive end. In 2013, the senior has posted 10 tackles for loss, including four sacks, this season. Colorado ends their season with Utah on Saturday.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Colorado redshirt junior WR Paul Richardson will enter the NFL draft.

Buffalos head coach Mike MacIntyre told reporters last week that he would not twist Richardson's arm to stay in Boulder next season, but it appears that the star receiver has already made up his mind to leave. Richardson, who missed last season with a knee injury, has collected 79 catches for 1,289 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2013. His slender frame (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) will ensure durability questions persist, but we like Richardson's deep speed and big-play ability.

Colorado head coach Mike MacIntrye told reporters he would not twist junior WR Paul Richardson's arm to return next season.

"It's his decision on what he wants to do," MacIntyre said. We expect Richardson to enter the draft, especially after questioning why Colorado's passing attack was not as successful as Oregon State's when the two schools faced off.

The average length of Colorado redshirt junior WR Paul Richardson's eight touchdown catches is 51.5 yards.

This is obviously a huge number and will be tough to keep up for the rest of the season. Richardson has plenty of talent, especially considering the lack of a surrounding cast at Colorado. We wouldn't be surprised to see him declare for May's draft.

Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre hopes redshirt junior WR Paul Richardson will be available to play against UCLA.

Richardson rolled his ankle against Arizona. "He’s feeling a lot better than he was (Monday)," MacIntyre said. "He’s a skinny little guy, so a little ankle does hurt him a little bit. I know he wants to play against UCLA in the Rose Bowl back at home. Hopefully, he’ll be able to go because we definitely need him."

Colorado senior WR Paul Richardson implied that he'd like to be used as Oregon State uses Brandin Cooks.

Cooks snagged nine balls for 168 yards and two TDs in the Beavers' blowout victory Saturday against the Buffaloes, while Richardson caught five passes for 70 yards. "We can take the page out of Oregon State's book," said Richardson. "I really like how they force-fed Brandin the ball. He's a good receiver, but when you're giving him that many touches, he was able to be productive." Richardson then said that he completely trusted his coaching staff and stated, "I can't say that we should have forced me the ball." The quotes read passive-aggressive and a tad insubordinate. Richardson was targeted just as many times (13) as Cooks in the contest. What he really seems to be saying is that Colorado's quarterback play and coaching aptitude is inferior to Oregon State's. While he'd be correct, Richardson is advised to limit his focus to the things he can control.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks believes Colorado senior WR Paul Richardson could intrigue teams during the second day of May's draft.

"Richardson's slender frame (6-foot-1, 170 pounds) will cause some scouts to worry about his durability, (but) the fact he has displayed big-play ability and explosive speed throughout his career will" impress evaluators, according to Brooks. Richardson has started his season on a high note, posting two games of over 200 yards, but he missed all of last year with an ACL injury.

Colorado announced junior Connor Wood as the starting quarterback on Monday.

Wood (6-foot-4, 225-pounds) will lead the Buffs into Sunday's opener against rival Colorado State in the Rocky Mountain Showdown at Mile High Stadium. True freshman Sefo Liufau will function as Wood's backup. Wood transferred from Texas to Colorado in 2011 and started one game in 2012 (he appeared in seven). Colorado is praying for stability at the sport's premier position after an offseason of attrition: Jordan Webb tore his ACL in spring practice and both Nick Hirschman and Shane Dillon transferred post-spring. Offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren said Wood "throws a nice deep ball and has a little stronger arm than some of the other guys, but some of them are a little more accurate on some of the underneath stuff."

Pittsburgh sophomore LB Deaysean Rippy will transfer to Colorado.

Daeysean is related to Buffaloes linebacker Doug Rippy. He will have to sit out the 2013 season but will have three years of eligibility remaining after that.
