How he fits:

A Roland Johnson clone. A pure leverage player, Richardson lives in the opposing backfield by rushing the A/B gaps with speed and a very quick first step. One of the staff's earliest targets at defensive line for 2014.

Chances to play in 2014:

Quite likely, actually. Defensive tackle loses a pair of seniors and could use someone who can disrupt plays in the backfield. Richardson realistically can't get any bigger or quicker, and his game is all about leverage versus strength. I see him as a rotation guy right away.
