2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
Anchors really well when pass-protecting and can absorb a ton of contact. Relatively nimble with above average foot speed for his size. A bit over-aggressive at times, which can leave him vulnerable and lunging at opponents. Too often beat by double moves or change of direction across his face. Must improve extending arms and initiating contact in order to redirect pass rushers with more authority.
A powerful run-blocker. Looks to take his man off his mark and does it with relative ease at times. Elite strength in his shoulders and arms. Doesn't bend well in his lower half and must learn to flex his body to keep leverage. Average vision to pick up stray blitzes from the second level. Good instincts to notice stunts and twists. Enough quickness for the occasional pull.
Highly aggressive with great motor. Really gets after guys. Finishes very strong. Looks to bang heads on every play.
Richardson projects as a third rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.
