BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who also played eight games with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection the past two years.

POSITIVES: Athletic blocker with outstanding size. Quick into blocks, powerful at the point, and moves opponents off the line. Moves well for such a large man and flashes surprising mobility. Slides out off the edge and does enough to protect the quarterback.s blindside. Fights with his hands and jolts opponents with good hand-punch or engulfs them altogether.

NEGATIVES: Bends at the waist, which adversely affects his balance. Does too much leaning on opponents rather than actual blocking. Must slim down and better condition himself.

ANALYSIS: When focused on his game, Richardson is a dominant blocker with a variety of skills. All too often he got by with his natural skills at Clemson, so he never took his game to another level. Close to being labeled as an underachiever, Richardson must start to live up to expectations and play to his potential.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round
