Do not shoot me, I am just the messenger.

ESPN's Todd McShay has four SEC players going in the top 10 picks of the 2012 NFL draft, but Alabama running back Trent Richardson isn't one of them.

McShay has Richardson going No. 11 overall to the Seattle Seahawks in his latest mock draft (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft2012/story/_/page/McShayMock2.0/2012-nfl-mock-draft-defenders-balance-top-10-todd-mcshay-latest-projection). Here's what McShay has to say about Richardson:

"Richardson is a top-five talent but will likely slip a bit because of positional value considerations. Falling this far would be a surprise, but none of the teams in the top 10 have a pressing need at running back. If none of them ignore need to take the best player available, the Seahawks will feel like they've won the lottery." http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/38456/tides-richardson-to-fall-out-of-top-10

I've never felt like Trent Richardson would go in the top 10. He may go 15 or later.

If you want a franchise workhorse running back that is going to stay healthy and run wild draft Trent Richardson.

If you wanna get ran all over by a franchise workhorse running back , pass him by.

I would take him at 8 or 9 with our pick.

I really think pending on the Peyton Manning situation that we should make a trade with the Bengals so they can move up and draft Richardson. They have 2 first picks at 17 and 21.

We wouldn't get them both in a trade down though. We'd probably get their second rounder...

I realize that but I think if we give them our 2nd round pick, it's possible....I have the trade in my wishlist :D

I actually like Lamar miller better than Trent Richardson.

I would like to know what it is about Lamar that you like better than Trent.

And I have it on good authority that Lamar's shoulder is shot. His draft value is going to eventually sink.

Not really sure why in today's day and age any running back would go in the top 10. Everyone screamed and screamed about Ingram being the best RB since Peterson blah blah blah. The fins are stupid for not taking him blah blah blah. 2010 it was Spiller, the year before that Moreno. This year's "OMG you have to take RB is Richardson". When will it stop.

I dont think anyone thought any of those backs were remotely close to being the next Peterson. Richardson is much closer to Peterson coming out of college than any of the guys you mentioned. RB tend to get a lot of hype, but Richardson's hype is legitimate. He can do it all and is probably the most complete back to come out this year.

only guys who aren't worried about thier jobs draft a rb in the top 10.

Well I get the whole idea of getting a good RB later, but elite players still go top 10 regardless of position imo. Ronnie Brown, Reggie Bush, and CJ Spiller were not elite coming out of college, but were top 10 picks.

Unless im getting AP type of talent, i would never draft a running back in the first round.

(1) NEVER take a RB in the top 5....
(2) 6-15..still don't take a RB
(3) 16-32...ok if you are drafting here and most
of your pieces are in place and you can get
a talent like AP or Trent...now is the time
I think a RB has value.

Yep. The guy can catch, block, run - he can do it all. And he played vs great defenses.

In today's NFL drafting a running back with a shelf life barely into his 30's just doesn't make fiscal or team building sense. Every year it seems that 5 months before the draft... there is some all pro stud running back who is going to go as high as AP and play like AP... then as the draft gets closer and closer... the seem to slip further and further down to the middle of the 1st round or to the end..... or in some cases out of it altogether.

You want to use the argument that he looks as advertised in college and will be the next adrian peterson? Ill sign up all day for that. Unless of course a franchise quarterback is "as advertised" or a pure elite pass rusher is "as advertised".. because in todays NFL, a great running back is a luxury, an all pro QB and pass rush is a necessity.

with all do respect to Richardson, who I love as a prospect, he is not on AP's level.
