Sheldon Richardson is the cream of the crop for the Jets rookies. Heck, he’s the cream of the crop for all rookies in the NFL and is in the hunt for rookie of the year. Today in his media session, Richardson had this to say:
If the NFL were to redo the 2013 draft, New York Jets rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson doesn’t believe he’d be a Jet. The way he sees it, the Jets, who selected him 13th and also owned the ninth pick, wouldn’t even have a shot at grabbing him.
“Probably No. 1, most likely,” Richardson said of where he’d be selected in a redraft. “Kansas City? Yeah. I went into the draft thinking I’d be the No. 1 pick. I had a shot.”
Most definitely. I still think I’m 13, 12 picks late if you ask me. Just playing,” Richardson said with a laugh. “It’s all fun and games and I’m glad he’s balling too. Thirteen, 14 and now we’re both going for defensive rookies of the year. Can’t ask for much better than that.” (Source: ESPN)
