LATEST NEWS
04/25/2013 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 10. *Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri: Richardson is a polarizing prospect because he has been a dominant player for only one season, and therefore carries risk. He's the only defensive tackle I saw all year long hold up to the awesome Alabama interior offensive line, recording a game-high 14 tackles in that contest. He finished 2012 only four tackles behind linebacker Andrew Wilson as Missouri's leading tackler with 75 stops, and led all SEC interior defensive linemen in this category. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
