From Tennessee bio: Started last 24 games in a row at left tackle including all 12 games in 2013. Aided offensive line in gaining 2,261 rushing yards, the most by the Vols since 2004.

From Dane Brugler scouting report: A heavy waist bender who gets lazy at times, Richardson has exciting potential because of his wide base, stout frame and vines for arms. His inconsistent technique makes it tough for him to sustain, but if he irons out the wrinkles, Richardson has a high NFL ceiling.
