Tiny Richardson Draft Watch
according to

STRENGTHS: Combination of size, agility, patience and power. Shocking athleticism for his size. Well-proportioned with broad shoulders, long arms and tree trunks for legs. Richardson shows surprising quickness and balance off the snap in pass protection, sliding quickly left to properly protect the blind side.
He latches on with strong hands and rides with the pass rusher before settling, squaring his shoulders and sustaining nicely by playing on the balls of his feet.

WEAKNESSES: Was bull-rushed into the quarterback multiple times in a marquee matchup against Jadeveon Clowney in 2013. Needs to be more technically consistent, as he'll get over-extended off the snap, and will at times stop his feet altogether, when asked to redirect in mirroring counter-moves.

Over-extends at times off the snap and doesn't exhibit consistent patience in pass protection, as he'll often reach to initiate contact when he should first establish his base, and then "catch" his opponent.

Compares To: Erik Williams, ex-Cowboys -- Like Williams, Richardson is a massive offensive tackle with the ability to re-route pass rushers and be a road-grader in the ground game.

my opinion: I thought Tiny was the face of the team the past few years. He was such a good player but I have to keep in mind the state of our program. Realistically, I see him going anywhere from low 2nd to 5th round. I bet he does not go all the way down to the 5th, but he under preformed at the combine IMO but I still hope the best of luck to him and cannot wait to see what happens in the coming months

I wish all those guys the best, but I'm not surprised with Tinys combine report. He left a lot to be desired last year IMO.
