Ray Rice is a self-proclaimed Trent Richardson fan, but it appears he isn’t the only Baltimore player that respects Richardson’s talent. In a BaltimoreRavens.com report, defensive end Pernell McPhee had some comments-
“I think he runs the ball harder than anybody in the league,” defensive end Pernell McPhee said. “Not saying he’s the best back in the league, but I’ll say he’s the hardest back in the NFL to tackle.”
Also from the same article-
“With a 5-foot-9, 230-pound frame, Richardson reminded defensive tackle Haloti Ngata of Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew. He reminded defensive end Art Jones of Rice. They’re all small, muscular backs that are quick and have power.
“He’s not going to try to shake you, he’s just going to try to run over you,” Ngata said.
“He doesn’t go down with one person tackling him,” nose tackle Terrence Cody added. “We’re going to need multiple guys around the ball every time he touches the ball.”
