Anthony Richardson will reportedly visit at least half a dozen different NFL franchises.
The former Florida quarterback is expected to be one of the first passers off the board in the first round of the NFL Draft April 27.
The dual-threat QB has plenty of raw talent and incredibly physical tools, but still needs a lot of polishing before he’s ready to lead a franchise.
Now, the picture of teams interested is starting to become clearer. Richardson will visit the Raiders, Panthers, Falcons, Titans, Colts and Ravens, according to Josina Anderson.
The Seahawks could also be interested but don’t have a scheduled visit.
Where will Anthony Richardson land?
There’s no doubt the former Florida QB is one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft. He’s pretty much a lock for the first round.
After that, very little is clear. There’s chatter he could go within the first few picks because of his natural attributes, most notably his size and athleticism.
However, he didn’t exactly put up huge numbers at Florida. Last season, he threw for 2,549 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He did impressively rush for nine scores and 654 yards. That’s what really makes him such an intriguing prospect.
Will the Ravens take a run at Richardson?
The Ravens hold the 22nd pick in the draft. It seems unlikely Richardson is still available that deep into the first round.
If he is, will Baltimore pull the trigger? Lamar Jackson’s future with the franchise remains incredibly murky.
The Ravens used the non-exclusive franchise tag on the star QB. That means the Ravens can match any offer extended to him or let him walk for two first round picks. If Jackson leaves and Richardson is available at 22, John Harbaugh and the Ravens might take a serious look at grabbing him.
If a QB viewed as a potential top five pick slips that low, it would be considered an absolute steal.
Anthony Richardson remains one of the most fascinating prospects in the draft just a few weeks out from round one. With six visits on the books, fans are starting to get an idea where he might land. Have a prediction? Let us know in the comments.

Colts will reeeeeaaaach at pick #4. I wouldn’t take Richardson in the first round. Poor man’s Cam Newton.
