    Sure enough, we went corner: Shaquille Richardson. Gonna have to do some googling, honestly.

    Richardson was in for a visit and he has the triangle we like. And the theme of SPEED continues.

    2013: Started all 13 games. Second on team with 3 INTs. 2012: Played in 13 games, starting 11. Led team with 14 PBUs. Had 1 INT. 2011: Played in 10 games, starting all 10. Led team with 4 INTs. 2010: Played in 13 games, starting 3. Recorded 2 INTs at Washington State in first career start. High School: No. 26 CB nationally (Scout).


    Quick and agile and is aggressive jumping routes when he sees it. Can make spectacular plays look easy -- produced one of the most sensational highlight-reel plays of the season vs. Oregon when he acrobatically tipped the ball back into play to a teammate for an interception on the first play and closed the game with an interception of his own vs. Marcus Mariota to key a surprise upset. Outstanding pro day workout, posting a 4.43-second 40, 38 1/2-inch vertical jump and 6.95-second three-cone drill time, indicating good speed, agility and explosion. Weaknesses

    Very lean build. Tends to squat on routes. Lacks eye discipline to sort out run-pass reads -- is late to locate the ball and support the run. Benched in 2012 for lapses in coverage and needs to become more consistent recognizing/supporting the run and securing open-field tackles. Marginal physicality. Character will invite close scrutiny -- was arrested on suspicion of felony theft as an incoming freshman and released from UCLA program. Draft Projection

    Rounds 6-7 Bottom Line

    A lean, leggy, underdeveloped press corner who has shown big-time flashes but must prove more consistent in coverage, a greater willingness to tackle and more maturity than he demonstrated early in his career to be given an opportunity to compete.

    Frank Cooney had him as the 234th best prospect. But, Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder. So something the Steelers have seen in him they like. He is more of a Athlete then a finished CB product. And ever report I have read...says he is a Finess player, who doesn't aggressively tackle.

    Doesn't seem like our kind of guy. But hey, I will Bow down to the knowledge of Colbert and the Coaches. Welcome to Pittsburgh Mr. Richardson!!

    They have done it before with Keenan Lewis and Joe Burnett, then again with Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen. Both times we got one contributor and one non-contributor. Drafting a second mid-round CB with our 5th comp gives a greater likelihood of having one of them contribute.
