Trent Richardson Scouting Report

5,11 - 220 - Running Back - Alabama 

Richardson is a power back who can run over defenders and take it to the house with good speed. Ideal size for the position and has all the tools to be a great NFL RB.

Pros

Very strong and powerful back who blows through arm tackles and runs low to the ground. A big hitter who loves running over DBs and gets a lot of yards after contact.

Catches the ball well out of the backfield and makes quick and decisive cuts.  Plays big in big games. Good straight line speed (about 4.5 seconds in the 40).

Cons

Does not have the lateral quickness that some elite running backs have and is more of a straight line runner (but a very good one at that).

Projection: Top 15 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft
