Sheldon Richardson

School: Missouri
Position: DT
Bio: Junior-college transfer and two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors in 2012. Totals last year included 75 tackles/10.5 tackles for loss/4 sacks after 37/8/2 the prior year.
Positive: Explosive, game-impacting defensive lineman with a versatile game. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step, plays low to the ground with outstanding pad level, and rarely knocked off his feet. Powerful and plays with a great amount of intensity. Quickly changes direction and pursues down the line of scrimmage with speed. Very athletic and makes plays in all directions. Violently attacks the action, goes after ballcarriers, and forces a lot of turnovers. Consistently makes plays behind the line of scrimmage. Occupies blocks and creates opportunities for teammates.
Negative: Occasionally bites on ball fakes. Slow getting off blocks once locked up at the point.
Analysis: Richardson is a tremendous combination of athleticism, intensity, and power. He offers possibilities as a conventional defensive tackle, 3-technique tackle, or even as a defensive end in the 3-4 alignment. He's a prospect who should only improve as he physically matures and learns the game.
