Trent Richardson  

Height: 5-9   Weight: 230   Age: 27

Born: 7/10/1990 Pensacola , FL

College: Alabama

Experience: Season









Draft 2012

Pick No.3

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 3 (3)

Pick Analysis: Richardson is a talented back who should garner a top-five pick in this year's draft, regardless of the idea that the shelf life of running backs doesn't warrant the risk of a top pick. Richardson is durable enough to handle a season full of carries, and with the new CBA rules putting a ceiling on rookie salaries, it will be tough for teams to pass on such a talented, polished back.
