Will Anthony Richardson throw at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine?

Despite only having one year as a full-time starter, Anthony Richardson is skyrocketing up draft boards

NCAA Football: Florida at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Former Florida Gators quarterback Anthony Richardson has been a hot topic among NFL fans and draft evaluators since his first, and only, season as a starter in 2022.

Before the season, he was the clear QB 1 heading into the 2023 draft, but he was wildly inconsistent throughout the year. There were moments of jaw-dropping throws and absurd runs, but also a fair amount of head-scratching plays. Still, the physical tools he has makes him a very intriguing prospect, similar to Josh Allen was coming out of Wyoming.

As he heads into the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine this week, Richardson is expecting to throw, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. It will be a good chance to show off his insane arm talent in front of every NFL head coach and GM.

Anthony Richardson’s collegiate production

Richardson only has one season as a full-time starter in college. With the Gators in 2022, he tossed for 3105 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine picks. He also added 654 yards and nine more scores with his legs.

Overall in college, he racked up 3105 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 15 picks in the air and another 1116 yards on the ground and 12 touchdowns.

He’s rapidly climbing draft boards and has +500 odds, the third-best odds of any player, to be selected with the first overall pick according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
