#13 Overall the New York Jets Select…

By PFC Draft Writer David Willemssen

DT Sheldon Richardson

Richardson was high on the board for many teams. It will be interesting how he plays the role of a 5 tech in a 34 Defense. Losing Mike Devito left a hole on the defensive side of the ball. Richardson was a junior college transfer who has not played against strong competition long. He showed good flashes at Missouri as a high effort player. His pursuit is great and his violent hands will help him command double teams. He is a powerful DT who put up 30 reps at the combine. An interesting pick with Lotululei on the board still.
