What you guys think about Sheldon Richardson?

Richardson has some character concerns, but not sure what they are. Big Beast52 is right. We need a big body, not a gap slasher. If we go DT, i have a feeling it will be a big body, like Hankins or Jesse Williams.

Oh since he is projected to be a 1st round pick that means that automatically is gonna happen..

Obviously it's not guaranteed but this guy had been compared to JJ Watt. So if someone reached for Poe last year at 11 then this guy should have no problem going first round.

Bro he could very well be the 2nd DT off the board.

I think we'd be fools to take a DT in the first round (where Richardson will go) when we have such a huge need on the offensive line.

so does Dwan Edwards,he graded out bad on pff.

Cam was the most hit QB when passing from the pocket this season. Dwan Edwards isn't responsible for protecting the future of our franchise.

you are right, and Cam needs to be protected. i meant to quote the person saying that you could run at Richardson like Dwan was all that good at stopping the run, because he wasnt.

That's why we don't need another DT with that skillset, we need one that can hold up in the run game. Plus dwan wasn't nearly as bad as what Ive seen from richardson

Dwan is a 8 year vet, and FA. Richardson is still young, will get stronger, and can be taught the proper technique to handle runs at him.

I think he's pretty overrated. He struggles when teams run right at him, which shouldn't be said about a DT.

But he shouldn't be BRO. He's is one of the more inflated prospects that the "experts" are hyping, along with Hankins.

I don't know much. I'm not an expert at scouting players.

Every draft, DTs are always quick off the board. I see 3-4 DTs off in the 1st alone. With a strong combine, Richardson can be the 2nd DT taken and a top15-20 pick. I say he's a much better and more polished player than Poe, though he's an UT. He'll end up being a 1st rounder.

Hankins is a great player. His games vs Cal and Michigan proves that. He's an incredible athlete. Stock is only dropping bc of physical concerns.

I think the DT I like the most in this class is sharif Floyd, strong against the run and has a good pass rush.
