Richardson your pick for the impact rookie

It’s all about speed for some of the Sound-Off Saturday voters, selecting wide receiver Paul Richardson as the rookie who will have the biggest impact for the Seahawks in 2014.

Richardson, the team's top draft choice as a second-round selection out of Colorado, garnered 30 percent of the vote to finish ahead of UCLA defensive end Cassius March, a fourth-round selection who received 24 percent of the vote.

Richardson is a burner who has consistently been time in the 4.4s for the 40. He showed his blazing speed on the first day of rookie minicamp when he caught a couple of deep throws for touchdowns.

Nine rookies received at least one vote in the survey, including two rookie free agents -- Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat and Montana linebacker Brock Coyle.

Wide receiver Chris Matthews, the 2012 CFL Rookie of the Year who was signed by Seattle earlier this year, also received a few votes.

Third in the survey was offensive tackle Justin Britt, a second-round choice from Missouri, who ended up with 16 percent of the vote. Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood, a fourth-round pick, received 11 percent of the overall vote. Outside linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis, a fourth-round choice from Boston College, got 8 percent of the vote.

The other player receiving a couple of votes was fullback Kiero Small, a seventh-round pick from Arkansas.
