Colorado wide receiver Paul Richardson will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, the school announced on Monday.

Richardson leaves Boulder holding 29 school records, including single-game and single-season marks for receptions and receiving yards. On Monday he was voted first team all-conference after finishing the 2013 season with 79 receptions for 1,289 yards and 10 touchdowns.

"I can get faster, bigger and stronger overall," Richardson said on Monday. "I want to do what it takes to move up in the draft."

According to, Richardson is the No. 9 wide receiver in the 2014 draft class and projected to be a second or third round pick. Richardson missed the 2012 season due to a knee injury that required surgery, but bounced back with an impressive 2013 despite inconsistency at the quarterback position and a coaching change.
