    In this video breakdown, I tracked all 45 of Paul Richardson's targets looking at his skill-set and route running ability to see the trends of his performance. Then, I analyzed his two games in the playoffs when he had enough snaps for me to form the general trends of this analysis.

    For most of the season his role was mainly running fade routes down the sideline. These were used to vertically stretch the defense. If Russell Wilson really liked the match-up, he could attempt the throw. Beyond these attempts, however, his role was rather limited until Tyler Lockett was injured. At that point, Darrell Bevell gave him Lockett’s snaps and in this increased role it gave him more opportunities to flash his big play ability.

    Overall, Richardson has good speed and it’s clear he has the ability to be a clutch receiver. However, in order to become an all-around receiving threat, he still needs to master the subtleties of route running. After three years removed from being a second round pick out of Colorado, he still has a lot to learn. This is why he struggles to gain consistent separation against defenders.

    Is Paul Richardson finally going to break out next year? I think there is a good chance he’ll gain more opportunities based on his fantastic play last year, but he still needs to take the next step and hone his receiving skills.

    Thats a great breakdown Samuel, but the route on 5:06 is a Sideline/Comeback and not a hitch...
    Sidelines have more steps than Hitches and the receiver breaks outside and comeback a few steps.
    On a Hitch, the receiver breaks inside and stop completely
    Great Video, love the channel!

    Yeah never mind, your commentating is all over the place. A lot of the things you're saying don't go along with what the video is about.

  • visixnary /

    You're just describing what happens, you're not really breaking down the film & analyzing it. I mean, yes, the video is informational - but you're not really doing anything else. & try not to be so monotone. Just some constructive criticism

    Two questions:

    1) Do his feet look heavy to you? When I watch Lockett, heck even Doug run they look so light and nimble. On the other hand PRich looks like his shoes weigh 15lbs each. He has straight line sprinters speed but his change of direction speed leaves SO much to be desired. Just watch highlight film of Tyler and you see him effortlessly glide around, changing directions without losing any speed.

    2) You say he is a 4.4 guy, and he looks it IMO, but in reality he is a 4.3 guy and he said (on the NFL Network) that he was clocked running 4.28 digital during his pre-combine prep work with one of those combine preparing companies. How fast does he look to you?

    To me, PRich is a real bummer of a draft pick, especially considering how high we took him and the talent at WR in the draft class he was in. Taken below him were Allen Robinson (damnit), Davante Adams, Jarvis Landry, John Brown (AZ), etc. And to make it worse, we took another WR that year (Norwood) and he was nothing then demanded to be traded (which we did to CAR for like a conditional 7th rounder). We coulda had Allen Robinson or John Brown!!!

    Great Video, I was thinking Malik Jackson from the Jags, he was a great signing and allowed many edges to get sacks, I would like to see a video to see how valuable he really is

  • JP Cox

    Actually, if you notice 1:53 Richardson has a step on the DB and the Safety bit on the crossing route underneath, so a ball thrown to the endzone would have been a TD.

    • Samuel Gold
      Samuel Gold  Month ago

      Yes, but at the point when Wilson made the read they were in-sync which usually tells the QB to make a backshoulder throw. I agree a deep throw would have been a TD, but at the time of the read it was 50/50.

      Arkie Alexander he's our most inconsistent receiver. I've seen him drop some fucking infuriatingly open passes, but the sonovabitch is magic in the postseason.

    Seahawks receiving core is extremely underrated and reliable. It kills me that our O-Line has struggled so much, cuz we had all the pieces to be a dominant offense.

    Samuel, can you please do a breakdown of Keenan Allen. When you talk about foot work and route running, I think he, Zach Ertz and Jordan Reed are the best out there.

      I take requests on Seahawks and general NFL topics. If something is heavily suggested I'll usually look at it. That's why the Lynch video is coming up next!
