Sheldon Richardson, is he even a good fit here?

That's ironic considering I'm still awaiting your answers to my previous questions. Oh well. I shouldn't have expected any form of intelligence from someone who appears to have grammar issues.

I could only imagine the worthless arguments you likely had against Von Miller, Luke Kuechly, Calvin Johnson, Matt Ryan, Adrian Peterson and Aaron Rodgers just because they weren't from the SEC. Whew. Seriously, if that's the only ammunition you have against Short, then you sir defy the law of physics for dolts everywhere.

None of your topic changing tactics explain. How you are making a comparison on players ability to play the run from a YouTube video when one player is playing a Oline where 3 players will be drafted high this year and other 2 players aren't facing the same competition.

You can try to portray this sophisticated facade over the internet but it doesn't change. How stupid your methods for analysis is.

are you watching the vids above?

cant say that i see him even going in the 1st with those highlights... but its all in good fun.

i made the mistake of reading too many mocks without watching enough footage... now im not convinced.

Believe me i hoping star falls(pipe dream), but after the recent wr signings i'm thinking were not going wr in the first. I do see that he gets push back at times but bulk him up and coach him up

and i can see that being fixed. I would also like to say drafting him in the first would be a 50/50 gamble that's why i would like him in the second but he will most likely not be there, taking him in the first is a risk we cannot take but i think people overreact to his run stopping skills. It's just a scary though if you add this dude to our d line. But im on board to get the most complete player at 14

Everybody would be OK with other players if drafted. But this idea of him not being a fit here or being mad if we draft him is stupid. His versatility and Rivera's defensive mind alone makes him a intriguing pick for us.

There are so many players I want at 14. I can't think of a realistic pick that's been discussed on here I'd be mad with... maybe Keenan Allen

Just be glad that our GM knows a little more about scouting than watching highlight clips on YouTube.

Richardson's game isnt so different from Fletcher Cox's last year. Cox had the exact same positives and negatives (size and style of play) and had a pretty solid rookie year, including 5.5 sacks.

Richardson reminds me of Hardy a bit, in the way he chases a play down and makes tackles outside of the line on a regular basis. That is a pretty rare trait for an Interior defensive line player, to be able to actually make a play 5-10 yards down the field and towards the sidelines.

He isnt my first choice at #14, but he should become a solid palyer and will make us better if we take him.

You don't spend a first round pick on somebody else just because your 32 year old mid to lower tier DT plays the same role. That goes for every position. If you believe in a player you take him and make room. Drafting for need is overrated. First round picks are all about getting great football players.

totally agreed and i'm glad you included "that goes for every position" tho it will more than likely be ignored.

you go for great or potentially great football players. you look for players who can make what you do better in any phase. the bigger the impact they can have, the better. sometimes it adds to something that is already strong. sometimes it strengthens a weak spot. sometimes it allows you to move on from a higher paid/older player on your roster. sometimes it just opens up new elements.

with the exception of franchise QB (which is the top) you have positions that you like to focus on that you think can be the dominant strength of your team and you build it up. that's what the giants did anyway. that's what a lot of teams do.

if you look at the draft to fill holes, you're constantly going to be over-reaching for players.
