Go To Bat for a Prospect
This thread idea is pretty simple. Pick one guy in the draft who you would bang the table for in a war room. This guy doesn't have to be a top 10 guy or even a first round pick, just someone you would feel tremendously confident saying to a GM we should pick this guy
I am picking Sheldon Richardson
I really fell in love with him at the start of the season when he started getting some buzz as a first round selection. He is such an athlete who can dominate in both the run and pass game. Against Alabama he had a great game despite what the scoreline said. He really dominated both Steen and Jones at times. He can penetrate, he has good hand usage and he is a smart player, often sniffing out screens but also has the athleticism to make the tackle downfield too. I also like that he has a bit of a nasty streak. Often he will make a hit a fraction after the play. It's not a big thing but it shows he has the right type of demeanor you want in a lineman. I also like his versatility. He can play the 3, has played over the nose on occasion and can kick outside to end in some circumstances. Richardson may well be my top rated player in the whole draft.
