Richardson, a redshirt junior, may be the most underrated receiver in the country. Colorado's last game was postponed due to flooding so he's only played in two games so far, and he's had more than 200 yards receiving in each. In total this year, he has 21 catches for 417 yards and 4 TDs. 

He looks healthy, showing no effects of the ACL surgery he underwent in 2012, and he is emerging as a top receiver in the country. He's incredibly fast, has outstanding hands, and is athletic when going up for the ball and when making catches near the sidelines. But even with all of that, his route running is what impresses me most.

I can't wait to see the types of numbers he puts up if he can keep the pace up from his first two games. If it keeps it up, he has a chance to go late in the second round of the draft.
