Anthony Richardson Scouting Report: Summary
One of the main beneficiaries of the scouting combine, but no less inconsistent quarterback. Very athletic, strong physically.
QB Anthony Richardson showed a very high level of play at times last season, and sometimes made just awful decisions. His arm allows him to make any shot he wants and he's generally pretty good in coverage schemes, although he occasionally misses open field goals. As for the takeaway game, there are no questions for him. His coaches will have to work on his shooting mechanics first.
If he can improve it, he'll improve his accuracy. Progress on that will allow Richardson to be counted on as a franchise quarterback.
