Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio was on the Dan Patrick show Monday morning discussing several topics, including his thought that the Browns may end up swapping picks with the Vikings at #3 to insure they don’t get ‘leapfrogged’ for Ryan Tannehill. He also discussed the Browns/Rams RGIII situation.
At the end of his time on the show, he agreed with an assessment of RB Trent Richardson that said the Alabama RB is not a top 15 pick-
“You have to have a team that is willing to make him an every down back, and fewer and fewer teams are doing that with running backs nowadays. He also has to be a truly special talent, and I don’t know that Trent Richardson falls into that Adrian Peterson category.”
He added that there are a lot of running backs that can move the chains at the pro level if you can block for them.
