    Richardson In Kiper's NFL Mock Draft 1.0 First Round

    VFL Antonio Richardson is predicted to be an NFL First-Round Draft Pick by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., as the analyst released his first mock draft for 2014 on Wednesday. Richardson is pegged at 27th overall to the New Orleans Saints. Tennessee has had 44 NFL First-Round picks including Cordarelle Patterson last season. 

    Kiper's Mock Draft: Mock draft 1.0

    Here's what Kiper wrote: 

    Analysis: Drew Brees will turn 35 on the day this mock draft is published, and his blind side was protected at the end of the season by rookie 2013 third-round pick Terron Armstead. I think Armstead can be a pretty good player, but I'm not coming away from this offseason without a player I think can be an effective NFL left tackle if I'm the Saints. "Tiny" Richardson can be. While he can struggle with speed rushers, Richardson is an athlete at this size, and can absorb power and simply overwhelm big or small defensive ends in the run game. He's a solid fit here.
