What scouts are saying:
"Massive road grader with enough mass to re-establish the line of scrimmage in the run game. Versatility to play right tackle adds to value, and he has the physical tools to compete readily in a man-blocking scheme if the game is kept simple. Has a bust factor." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"Richardson has a massive frame with a large wingspan to engulf defenders, but he tends to allow rushers into his body too often and needs to be more consistently aggressive with his limbs. Although he held his own at tackle last season, Richardson should be even better as he returns to guard this fall, showing the potential to develop into a top-64 selection very soon." (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)
"Richardson would probably fit best at guard in the NFL, but could maybe pull off right tackle. Richardson opened up a lot of holes and was greatly improved as a pass-blocker. He has good size with a some quickness at guard." (WalterFootball.com)
