Davius Richard has a solid collegiate resume. His athleticism is impressive, and Richard’s career statistics show his potential. The North Carolina Central University athlete believes his hard work will pay off at the NFL draft in Detroit, starting April 25th. 

Davius Richard has a very diverse athletic background. The four-sport athlete has played basketball, baseball, and tennis but decided to focus on football in college. Richard has fully committed to the sport and won several prestigious awards, such as the MEAC Offensive Player of the Year. Although Davius Richard suffered a dislocated ankle, the obstacle hasn’t stopped him from potentially ending the NFL draft drought for quarterbacks from HBCUs. The last HBCU quarterback drafted was Tarvaris Jackson.

Richard’s optimism and love for the game are undeniable. Scouts and team personnel have informed Davius Richard that he could be drafted in the later rounds or even as a priority undrafted free agent. Richard, however, doesn’t view football as work but as a passion he thoroughly enjoys. Davius Richard’s passion and impressive stats could potentially make him the first quarterback drafted from a historically Black college in nearly two decades.
