The Seahawks finally made a pick and selected Colorado wideout Paul Richardson.

Richardson is thin, but extremely fast. He’s 6-feet tall and 175 pounds. At Colorado, he was essentially their only offensive option. He had 83 catches for 1,343 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Here’s how Richardson described himself at the NFL combine:

“Being able to score in multiple ways. Taking it on 3-yard routes or downfield 30 yards, being able to stretch the field on any starting point is a good trait to have,” Richardson said. “(A) split between Mike Wallace and DeSean Jackson right now. I’m trying to come in and make a name for myself.”
