The bystander couldn't help but notice the young man with the huge frame and gigantic shoulders, the one towering over everyone in his orbit.
Finally, curiosity got the best of this visitor to the Indiana Convention Center.
"So, what position do you play?" the man asked Anthony Richardson, aware the NFL scouting combine had taken over downtown Indianapolis.
This scene was a small glimpse of what Richardson hopes will ultimately be the story of his combine.
Richardson, who ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper had going No. 9 to the Seattle Seahawks via a projected trade in his latest mock draft,
had generated significant interest from multiple teams with top-10 selections before the combine,
but his goal was to keep the surprises coming, to make everyone want a closer look.
With Richardson's college experience limited to 13 starts,
and his 53.8% completion rate last season ranked 105th out of 113 FBS quarterbacks, his inconsistency sparked a range of opinions about his NFL future.
