For those of you who are currently engrossed in the quarterbacks for this upcoming NFL draft, one name that you have probably heard about is Florida’s Anthony Richardson. His athleticism is completely off the charts for a quarterback.

In fact, according to the Relative Athletic Score (RAS) Richardson is in some rare air as he was rated as 10 out of 10. At this point only four other quarterbacks have also received the coveted 10 out of 10.

Those quarterbacks are Cam Newton, Daunte Culpepper, Vinny Testaverde and...

Brook Berringer.

Would like to give a h/t to our NFL Draft expert here at Corn Nation Brian Johannes for sharing this with the writers. Here is his youtube channel @draft_brian.
