2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Aug-21-2013 by Shawn Larabee

Richardson did a fine job backing up Steven Jackson last season. The lightly regarded 7th-round pick rolled up 475 yards on just 95 carries while pitching in 24 grabs for 168 yards. Though he's the RB on the roster with the most NFL game experience, he's probably best suited to a 3rd-down role. We expect him to be locked into an eventual time-share with the team's more rugged between-the-tackles rushers like Isaiah Pead and rookie Zac Stacy.

Update: 8/10 Daryl Richardson has been named the team's starter and looks every bit the part as he's flashed extremely well in camp. We could be looking at a breakout candidate if this continues through the preseason. Keep an eye on him in Week 2 and 3 of the preseason. If he continues to shine, his stock will continue to rise to somewhere in the mid 6th or 7th round. Intriguing prospect to take a flier on, especially if you started wide receiver heavy in your draft.

11.03 KFFL - Early word has Richardson running as the starter, and even if he loses the job at some point he'll have a role in the offense. I believe St. Louis sees something in him that the public may not, and D-Rich could be a steal at this point.
