Sheldon Richardson is a 6’2” 295 lbs defensive tackle that played at the University of Missouri.  Richardson grew up in St. Louis Missouri and played football at Gateway High School, before going on to the College of the Sequoias a junior college in California.  He originally planned on going to Missouri, but was ineligible for academic reasons.  After two years at Sequoias he went to Missouri where he played one season before announcing he would enter the NFL draft.  Richardson led the team with 75 tackles with 10 ½ for a loss, 4 sacks, seven QB hurries and 3 forced fumbles.  He is projected to be a mid first round selection Highlights courtesy of TheFottballMan175 The Positive: Richardson is quick off the snap and good disbursement so he can handle light/quick or heavy slower lineman.  His ability to adapt is a main reason he is projected to go in the first round.  His leverage and vision allows him to evaluate the situation and either penetrate or break away and find a better lane to pursue. The Negative: He is strong, but needs to build more upper body strength.  As mentioned he can adapt, but has difficulty disengaging if locked in.  He needs to find a way to build a more stable and firm base.  His durability and experience are also concerns as he only played one full season at the Sequoias before missing most of his sophomore season and then missed a game during his junior season for a violation of team rules.  He is going to need to be more dedicated and in control to avoid any type of labels.

Predicting Stars and Busts: NFL Draft Trends

When the NFL added the expansion Houston Texans to its league in 2002, it brought the number of teams up to an even 32. In the eleven drafts since then, there have been 351 first round selections. Why not an even 352? I think Bill Belichick has the answer to that question. Anyway, something interesting to note about these 351 first round draft picks is that only 122 went on to reach...
