Daryl Richardson is from Abilene Christian, a small school located in West Texas, and was drafted late in the 7th round. He is also a very versatile running back with outstanding running skills for the next level. When I dug into some film, after the Rams held their rookie mini-camp, I saw a running back that plays bigger than measured (5’9 -193), has a solid compact frame with large legs, has stop and start quickness and an explosive burst with acceleration. He has the ability to change gears and bounce laterally. He has great vision with cutting ability to escape pressure and defy angles in space. This skill set seems to run in the family. Daryl is the younger brother of Bernard Scott, the Cincinnati Bengals running back.
