BIO: Second-team all-conference selection as a senior after posting 72/20/12.5. Junior numbers included 55/7/7. Lined up almost exclusively as a defensive end in college.
POSITIVES: Athletic pass-rushing end who projects to linebacker in the NFL. Plays with excellent quickness, leverage and fast in pursuit of the action. Makes plays up and down the line of scrimmage displaying excellent lateral. Fluid changing direction, always on balance and rarely off his feet. Gets depth on pass drops off the line of scrimmage and smooth transitioning to run with tight ends.
NEGATIVES: Not decisive or instinctive in pass coverage. Handled at the point of attack and slow shedding blocks.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working defender that does the extras to get better, Richmond must now learn to play in space on an every down basis. Athletic abilities and quickness give him the upper hand but will need time to key and diagnose in open air.
