Sheldon Richardson, is he even a good fit here?

He also beats them to. This whole idea that he gets pushed around all the time is getting stupidly over played.

Have you not seen Short's tape? Or Brandon's, especially, for that matter. Williams moves like a LB and has a very high motor for a NT.

No, it's not. Richardson getting manhandled is virtually present on every highlight film. Call it stupid all you but it's his biggest weakness. He's a good pass rusher, but a weak run stuffer.

I have and neither were playing against SEC oline. Most of which will be drafted in the 1st 3 rounds. I like Short and Williams as well. But you're not going to sit here and act like Short and Williams against the same Olines wouldn't get pushed around.

Ummm, who cares? Half of the League's best DTs didn't come from the SEC (ex. Ngata, Suh and Wilfork). That SEC angle is incredibly overused in debates and rarely holds value.

And yes, I'm gonna sit here and tell you that. Both Short and B. Williams held their own, and impressed at the Senior Bowl. Brandon was double teamed and he still managed to beat them on a few occasions to disrupt the backfield and pressure the QB. Short, on that note, was in the backfield, for what felt like, every other snap.

Seriously, that SEC argumentative point needs to die.

Then you're fuging stupid. If you think it doesn't make difference in the competition you faced. You compare 1 week at the senior bowl to every week facing a guy likely to play in the NFL.

I forgot Conferences USA and the Big East are putting out NFL olinemen every year.

What a stupid comment. Comparing a week at the senior bowl (facing guys one on one) to facing Warmack, Jones and Fluker for a whole game.

Oh yes, may the heavens forgive me for such a comment. The SEC is the Holy Grail of college football even though they've blessed us with hundreds upon hundreds of busts and disappointments this past decade.

Yes, a fudging stupid comment indeed.

Yes it is. Comparing competition at Missouri State division 2. To the competition in the SEC.

Yes, because your logic dictates that players like our very own Kuechly, Beason, C. Johnson, Stewart, Smith, etc and other elite players across the league such as A. Rodgers, Megatron, M. Ryan, V. Miller, Fitzgerald, JJ Watt, etc don't hold a candle to SEC products. That's a flawed argument.

These prospects are individual talents, not squads. Conferences and divisions don't mean diddy squat at the end of the day.

Richardson? Hell NO.

Why? Reasons already stated and I doubt he'll be BPA. A lot of guys I'd want instead of him. I'm really not even thinking Richardson. Maybe I am just hoping Warmack or Star will fall or that Austin will be there. I'd be happy with anyone this board mentions except Richardson and somewhat Allen.

It looks like Richardson benched 30 reps which is the same number as Williams.
