Interview: Kent Richardson

April 3, 2010

 

Draft Breakdown was able to get out to the West Virginia Pro Day this year, and a player that caught our attention was cornerback Kent Richardson. Kent had a great workout and spent some time talking to NFL scouts afterwards. With his physical skill set, he’s certainly someone that needs to be on the radar of all NFL Draft followers. Rob Engle took a few minutes to talk with Kent about his career at WVU.

 

Engle: Hey Kent, thanks for taking the time to do this interview. What did you study at West Virginia?

 

Richardson: I studied Marketing.

 

Engle: What is your accurate height, weight, 40 time and bench press?

 

Richardson: My accurate height is 5’11 3/4, bench press is 435 and 20 reps at 225, and my 40 is a 4.46.

Report from West Virginia Pro Day

3-18-10 By our count, there were 9 teams represented at the 2010 West Virginia pro day: the Steelers, Seahawks, Saints, Eagles, Texans, Browns, Panthers, Ravens and Vikings were all in attendance but there were also several unidentified scouts as well. The Browns sent three scouts to the pro day which might mean that the have considerable interest in a prospect that was there. The players that participated were OT Selvish Capers, WR’s Alric Arnett and Wes Lyons, QB Jarrett Brown, LB Ovid Goulbourne, CB’s Guesly Dervil, Kent Richardson, Nate Sowers, and Anthony Wood, and Punter Scott Kozlowski. There weren’t any big name scouts or coaches in attendance but there were still some impressive performances. WR Wes Lyons was the biggest surprise. At 6’8″ 231 pounds Wes is a mountain of a wideout. I clocked his 40 times at 4.61 and 4.67 and his short shuttle at 4.12 and 4.19 which (read more…)
