2013

Richardson is a rare athlete at tackle who should be an absolute menace on stunts. He'll play end for the Jets' 3-4 scheme, however, and his arrival could signal a move to nose tackle for Muhammad Wilkerson, who has the stoutest build of the Jets' big three on the line, that being Richardson, Wilkerson and Quinton Coples. Richardson had issues in run defense at Missouri and will need to learn how to transfer his explosiveness into anchoring at the point of attack rather than just pursuing wildly like he did at Missouri, but Rex Ryan is the exact coach you would want to mentor him.
