da fug you talking about?

Joeckel, Matthews, Lewan, Warmack, Cooper, Fisher, Jones, et all. This is one of the best OL drafts I can remember.

Mathews is overated in my opinion. He looks alot better with the other guy on the otherside. A few of they guys u mentioned are guards, so are we drafting another guard high(see last years mistake) or are we looking to replace gross? Mathews was a rt and projecting him to right is risky this isnt madden. Cooper guard.warmack same

Matthews skill set is more suited for LT than RT actually. He's much more athletic then he is a mauler....

I'd argue OG is the position we need most. Hangartner is not good, and isn't more than a stop gap. Austin was on the practice squad for a reason. And Byers probably won't make the team next season.

So, Warmack, Cooper, or Jones would be a nice fit on the right side.

As far as Matthews goes... He's almost as good as Joeckel, and would be starting at LT if not for Joeckel. Hell, his dad is a Hall of Famer, so he has the pedigree.

I honestly don't think it's too bold to say that Matthews could play longer at LT then Joeckel does....

I believe taking a guard in the first round should only be done if ur picking in the late 20s. I could see a mathews pick if where picking around 12. But, im just iffy on the guy could just be me. I think we have more pressing need with more sure fire answers at dt cb and wr. Go ol in the second again.

If we misses out on a Star, Hankins or Joeckel, I rather still go DE Dion Jordan, Oregon.

this might win the award for dumbest post of the year. Yeah let's draft a de in the first round when we already have two defensive ends with double digit sacks. Great idea.

Who is a surefire answer at DT in the top 15 after Star Lotulelei and Hankins (who is severely overrated himself)....

We need to solidify our OLine. Protect Cam, whatever it takes because our entire team operates through him. 1st Pick should

be the best available offensive tackle...

  • Sheldon Richardson, 6-4/295

  • Defensive Tackle

  • Missouri

Sheldon Richardson Scouting Report

By Charlie Campbell

Strengths:

  • Extremely explosive
  • Non-stop motor
  • Very fast
  • Instincts
  • Can play defensive end and tackle
  • Gives relentless effort
  • Very disruptive
  • Phenomenal closing speed
  • Great get off
  • A very rare athlete
  • Makes plays in and out of his gap
  • Pad level
  • Quickness
  • Uses hands well in combination with his feet
  • Plays with good leverage
  • Strong pass-rusher on the interior
  • Repertoire of pass rushing moves
  • Scheme versatility

Weaknesses:

  • Strength to anchor
  • Raw, a little unpolished
  • Could use a little more weight
  • Suspended for one game in 2012
    Summary: Missouri struggled with its move to the SEC, but Richardson was one Tigers player who was clearly better then the competition. He was a dominant force at the point of attack. The explosive junior was constantly firing into the backfield to be a disruptive presence against the pass and the run.

    Richardson was impossible not to notice when watching tape of the Tigers; he was all over the field. If plays went away from him, Richardson would give tremendous effort to run across the field and get in on tackles. Because he is extremely fast, he was able to have an impact with that effort. Richardson got in on tackles over 10 yards down the field on wide receivers after receptions.

    Richardson finished the year second on Missouri in tackles with 75. He registered 10.5 tackles for a loss, four sacks, three passes broken up and three forced fumbles. too. Richardson also returned a fumble 60 yards against Kentucky. The Tigers did not qualify for a Bowl game, and the junior quickly declared for the 2013 NFL Draft. He recorded 37 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, two sacks and a forced fumble in 2011.

    Missouri used Richardson at defensive end and tackle. He had success as a pass-rusher at end as well as at tackle. Richardson beat Alabama right tackle D.J. Fluker for a sack coming from end, and is a much better pass-rusher than his sack totals indicate. Richardson had 14 tackles against Alabama. He was impressive going against the Crimson Tide's superb offensive line.

    Against Kentucky's Larry Warford, Richardson didn't make plays versus the tough guard but found a way to have a big impact versus the Wildcats' other linemen.

    Richardson could be a dangerous pass-rusher in the NFL as a three-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense. He also could play end on run downs and move inside to tackle in passing situations for a 4-3 system. Richardson also would fit as a 3-4 defensive end given his length, speed and great motor. He is an impact player who is a three-down player and tone-setter for a defense. Richardson is a fiery player who has some potential to be a leader in the locker room.

Player Comparison: J.J. Watt. I don't think that Richardson will turn into as a good of a player as Watt. However of all the players in the NFL, Richardon's non-stop motor and style of play is the most reminiscent of Watt. Both players also have explosiveness and the instincts to make impact plays even when not recording sacks. Watt (6-5, 295), a second-year pro, and Richardson have almost identical measurements with length and speed. Watt is a better player in the NFL than he was in college and Richardson definitely has that potential.

NFL Matches: Carolina, Oakland, New Orleans, Dallas, Minnesota, Denver, Atlanta

If Star isn't on the board (he won't be) I agree completely.
