Default Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

So Trent Richardson is really fun to watch and looks the part of a future Pro Bowl RB. I have a few thoughts on him I'd like to discuss:

-His combination of physical tools and skills seem ideal for the NFL.

-I see no signs of maturity issues.

-He doesn't have a ton of wear on his tires.

-He's kind of like the RB version of Julio Jones.

-The recent history of Alabama RBs who played under Saban worries me a bit.

That's really, really huge. I don't think it's any coincidence that Ricky Williams and Cedric Benson both really struggled with injuries early in their careers. They were run into the ground at Texas.

I love Trent, and I think he's a special prospect. Not Adrian Peterson-level, but he isn't that far behind.

Richardson is a beast, I love the kid. I'm somewhat concerned about the Alabama RB factory but it's not enough for me to push him down the board. He's explosive, he's a factor in the passing game (which is HUGE for a RB these days, look how ineffective guys like Blount and Shonn Greene are when their teams are trailing) he's also an above average pass blocker from what I've seen which means he'll be one of the rare 3-down backs in the league when he makes the jump. That game on Saturday night convinced me 100% that he's the best RB prospect in the last 5 years, to churn out yardage against a very tough and stingy D says a lot. He was the best offensive player on the field for either team. It's easy to run wild on the creampuff teams of the NCAA, but to do that against LSU solidifies it.

More of a mid first rounder to me than a dominant top 5 type...

Not sure I wouldn't rather Lamar Miller at the top of the 2nd, if he slipped there.

Same. While it's been fun watching a guy who was highly recruited, has muscle like a greek god, and plays for one of the biggest college football program succeed, I still don't see that "Elite" aspect to him. His vision is just above average and Alabama gets alot of success out of Nick Saban's running backs.

I wouldn't want to deny him of eventually being a top back in the league because of the psychical qualities he possesses though, but with the way running backs are valued now I would rather go for a guy like Lamar Miller a little later. This can also be credited to the fact I love Miller's game. :)

He is a sure fire top 5 prospect this year, and top 10 pick. There's no RB even close thats eligible to Richardson, and I expect his name to be called early. Denver and Seattle seem likely destinations, depending on what they do with their QB situations.

I had an argument today with my Friend at school today, he said Richardson would be smarter to stay in school and go higher in the Draft next year, I said he is a top 15 Pick now and RB's nowadays don't go very high plus why would you stay in College and get hit for Free or go Pro and make Millions right now?

He reminds me of a stronger version of Jonathan Stewart coming out of Oregon, but not as fast or agile due to his super bulked up physique. I wouldn't put him in the AD, DMC, or Steven Jackson level of runningback prospects, but he's one of the very few runningbacks that should be picked in the 1st (mid 1st at that).

That's funny because I actually see him as a Steven Jackson clone. They both have the super bulked up frame and running style. They have receiving ability and are just shifty enough to avoid the big hits. I would project Richardson's career to mimic Jackson's completely.

Don't think he's as good a receiver as Jackson. Good hands on the screen, not super catching the ball over his shoulder like a wideout.

I think he's better at it than he looks...his QB just sucks at ball placement.

Not in my eyes. S-JAX is 6-2, so his 230 pounds are spread out better (giving him better agility and top end speed due to his longer/legs stride), while Trent will be lucky to measure at 5-11 at the combine, and is one of the bulkiest runningbacks I've ever seen. J-stew compares a lil better, but even he wasn't as rocked up like Trent, and is a more fluid runner.

Not declaring as a RB where the risk of injury is so high and the shelf-life is so short would be madness.

Richardson is the best RB prospect to come out since Adrian Peterson that actually warrants a top 10 selection.

He may not be Adrian Peterson, but he's close. The dude is huge and honestly, you need 3-4 guys to bring him down. I see defenders go at his legs and they're like tree trunks that run a 4.5 or less speed.

Very good reciever out of the backfield. Complete RB prosecpt.

I hate to break it to you, but there is a better chance that the sun burns out and hell freezes over before Richardson returns to Alabama for his senior year.

Staying as a RB is blasphemy. No way man. (Unless your DeMarco Murray!)

The Only thing I can say is take the Money now because you can always get your Degree later. Why risk Playing in the NFL and Millions of Dollars for something you can get when ever you want? I mean God Forbid he could go back and get hurt to where he can never play again and there goes the NFL and Money. Take the Money and NFL Now, If he really wants his degree he could take classes in the Off season.

It's too soon to tell if Richardson will have an impact if he comes out this year. I think he should stay another year and improve his running between the tackles. The LSU game shows he needs to improve as a player.

Alabama can't pass effectively enough to open up space against a D like LSU.
Also Richardson is running behind IMO the best Oline in college. The only thing Richardson lacks is elite speed, but clearly he does possess excellent game speed.

It will be interesting to see who gets drafted first, Lamar Miller or Richardson??
Miller has elite tools and that 'Canes pedigree, but Richardson just looks built for the pro game.

He reminds me of Ryan Mathews as a pro prospect.

Are you serious? Do you really think some team would prefer Lamar Miller?

One guy is 5'10, @210-215#, tough elusive with 4.3 speed.
Other guy is 5'11, @220-225#, bull strong, powerful, great feet, fast for a big back but won't outrun NFL secondaries.

It's a choice between a runner with a Lesean McCoy/LD skillset versus a guy with Steven Jackson/Brandon Jacobs(in his prime) ability.

I don't like comparing Richardson to AD because Peterson is quicker, faster, more elusive.

Yeah I do think some teams will rate Miller higher than Richardson because of their offensive scheme and Miller's perceived better big play ability.

Not quite Ricky/Edge, but a very similar debate.

Also, with the new rookie salary structure, I wonder if positions with traditionally low value in round 1 (RB, interior OL, safety) will start to go higher now since they won't enter the league as the highest paid player at their position anymore. Could see more teams going to true BAP.
