OT Antonio Richardson
Richardson is major bargain in the fourth round. The giant from Tennessee is the perfect combination of athleticism and power. He’s agile enough to play either tackle spot and strong enough to be a major factor in the run game. Richardson could be developed into a guard in year one and provide solid competition immediately. He’s agile enough to pull and block on the run and he’s strong enough to drive straight ahead.
Long-term Richardson projects phenomenally as a tackle. With Doug Free’s future in question after this season the Cowboys may be able to proactively solve a problem a year ahead of time.
