The NFL combine is one place where many players can drastically improve their draft stock.
We have seen some players in the past jump up a full round because of their combine performances.
Just last year, Travon Walker had a great combine, and he ended up being selected first by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
This year one player who seems to be helping his stock out plenty is Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson.
Earlier in the draft season, it seemed like Richardson would be a late first-round pick at best.
But, over the past few weeks, he has improved his stock to a point where he may be selected in the top 10.
Richardson just did something at the combine that all NFL teams will take notice of.
He set the record for the highest vertical jump for a quarterback.

He is a very good athlete, and that is something plenty of teams will love about him.
You have to be able to use your legs to be successful in the NFL, and Richardson can do that.
But, drafting Richardson in the top 10 will be based solely on projectability.
He has the traits to be a great NFL quarterback, but his college production was not very good.
This past season at Florida, Richardson completed 53.8% of his passes for 2,549 yards and 17 touchdowns.
He also threw nine interceptions.
But, he did rush for 654 yards and nine touchdowns.
Richardson has a draft projection that could be anywhere in the first round.
