NFL Draft 2012: Why the Cleveland Browns need Alabama’s Trent Richardson

Pro Football Weekly explains the case for why the Cleveland Browns need Alabama running back Trent Richardson.

Pro Football Weekly’s Adam Anshell and Hub Arkush discuss the appeal of former Tide running back Trent Richardson. Richardson was a key part of Alabama’s 2009 and 2011 national championship teams. Richardson is a 5’9 ¼”, 228 lbs. running back with 4.49 speed.

Arkush believes the 2012 NFL Draft will determine “the success or failure of the Mike Holmgren regime.” PFW wonders if Holmgren will be bullied into taking a quarterback.

Selecting Richardson instead of one of the remaining quarterbacks would give Holmgren a player “to build an offense around.”
