I don't have anything positive to say; just want to be on record that he's a terrible prospect. Nearly as bad a tackler as Holliman (at least Richards gives effort), as he's guaranteed to get dusted several times per game. Not any better in coverage, where he has a tight backpedal and taking bad angles is his philosophy.

Even the plays he does make are of the idiot savant variety (wildly overruns the receiver on an open field tackle, but his flailing arms happen to knock the ball out on the way past). How in the hell did he make All-Pac-12 this season? Undraftable.

+ Has his Stanford education
- Spastic, out-of-control player who has some of the worst breakdown technique in the country
- A big play machine for offenses
- Not even worth a coverage team investment because of his horrible tackling
