I remember at the beginning of the season the week leading up to Missouri's matchup with Georgia when Richardson was mouthing off about the SEC referring to it as "old man football"... after Georgia thumped 'em by 3 touchdowns, they were holding up signs that read "Grown Man Football" as Missouri proceeded to go 2-6 in the conference.
Prime example of the reason he won't be on the Dolphins' short list at 12. Joe Philbin wants guys who shut their mouths and just show up to work. He doesn't want Sheldon Richardsons.
For better, and for worse.
Zaviar Gooden has what Channing Crowder would refer to as "young, dumb energy". Not in a bad way.
Can't coach that kind of athletic ability though. The kind that makes plays.
I'm torn about Sheldon at tackle though. Feel like he might be more at home on the outside in a 3-4. And of course inside in the nickel, which has become the NFL's new base defense.

That's how I see him. I think he's going to draw interest from teams that use both fronts. If you've got his type of athleticism with long enough arms at that size, teams are going to fall in love with sticking you on the 5 in base with the bonus of reducing you down in rush packages... and Richardson's 34 1/2" arms more than makes him a prime candidate. He's essentially the prototype.
