Sheldon Richardson, is he even a good fit here?

Not sold. DT probably the biggest position for a bust in the 1st round. We can get Hankins in round 2 and still be as affective.

Demand a double team? In college yes, NFL No. A good OG is going to handle a 285-295 DT.

NO to Micheal Crabtree 2.0 Austin,

No to a DT under 300 LBs Richardson.

What! LMFAO

Sheldon can gain a good 10-15 pounds pushing him to 310-315. Geno Atkins is 300 and Ratliff is 303 playing NT. It's how much you weigh. It's the lower body strength.

And Tavon is a Crabtree 2.0? LOL. Please quit. I'll take it as a compliment since Crabtree has become a very good receiver.

Really. It took Crabtree four seasons to have his first 1000 yd receiving. We don't have 4 years.

This isn't college. What did Richardson do before 2012? Never heard of him till last season. This guy would be a 2nd rounder in any other year. This years weak draft is the only reason why we are talking about him in the 1st.

I hope we don't. Richardson will be a bust.

their is no weight limit for a DT, its about tech and ability. Jay Ratliff is around 290 but plays NT for a 3-4(switching to 4-3). he had shown the ability to anchor when he has to but he also showed the ability to disrupt the pocket(which Wade liked his NT to do, 1 gap penetrate). that is why i think Kawann Short would be the better prospect because he has shown the ability to do both.

I do not think he could beat DEdwards out for UT.I would like our 1st round pick to be an impact player.

He could beat out Fua, Krease, and Chandler and that's all that matters.
