NEW YORK -- Rex Ryan has much stacked against him as he coaches for his job in 2013. He'll at least get the advantage of a revamped defense.
Richardson has quickness and a great motor, allowing him to make plays both inside and outside. He can get to the quarterback, a trait the Jets covet. Richardson was ranked as the seventh-best prospect on Mike Mayock's top 50.
Ryan is a defensive coach, and he's probably pleased with how the first-round played out. The same cannot be said for quarterback Mark Sanchez, who must feel like he's been walked off a plank.
