Ex-Florida Gators QB Anthony Richardson drops shocking claim on athletic prowess prior NFL Draft: “As a player, I’m not human. I’m an alien”

Anthony Richardson has a reputation for being the most naturally gifted quarterback in the draft as he exudes an air of royalty on the field. The guy himself knows and appreciates his value, and recently asserted that, when entering a field, he is completely unique from others.

Despite completing only 53.8% of his passes for 17 touchdowns and 9 interceptions, the ex-Florida quarterback is one of the top prospects. The QB became the first Florida quarterback since Tim Tebow in 2008 to rush for three touchdowns in a single game.

On a football field, Richardson performs some feats that the majority of other players can only hope to accomplish. He has a powerful buzzard alike arm that allows him to quickly grasp the ball. He keeps an eagle eye on the ball at all times to prevent it from straying too far. Due to his exceptional on-field abilities, the quarterback claimed he was an “Alien” on the field who was indistinguishable from any other players.

“As a player, I’m not human. I’m an alien,” HE said “I don’t think I can be compared to anybody. As a person, I’m normal — just a fun-loving guy who likes to make people smile.”

Although AR-15 possesses all the necessary skills to play in the NFL and the next level of athleticism for a quarterback in the pocket, he is still very young and has a long way to go before he can become the starting quarterback. The 20-year-old admitted as much and pledged to keep working for updating his skill to the next level as time goes on.

“I know I have to get better,” he said. “But I promise, I will work relentlessly to improve. And I will improve. All you need to do is watch the tape to know my best is still yet to come.”

With a leap of 10 feet, 9 inches in the broad jump, and 40.5 inches in the vertical jump, the big-legged star established position records in both events this season. The 6’4″ Richardson excels at downfield throws, and during his 25-minute throwing session, he completed one of 62 throws for well over 74 yards in the air.


The NFL Hall of Fame is something the young star aspires to deeply. He hopes to distinguish himself from other NFL players by continually honing his craft and improving.

“I’m gonna be in the Hall of Fame one day,” he remarked. “I already know it. I’m going to grind until I am a Hall of Famer. I’m going to make sure of it. Just making it to the NFL, that’s not enough. I gotta be one of the best to ever do it. That’s just how I am.”

The athlete possesses something incredibly unique that makes him feel admirable. He serves as an example for his younger players at such a young age. If he can sharpen his abilities even further and demonstrate them on the field, he may eventually see his name future listed alongside the best quarterbacks in the NFL, such as Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Aaron Rodgers, etc.
