Vikings signed Tennessee OT Tiny Richardson.
Richardson (6-foot-6, 336) made 24 starts for the Vols, all at left tackle, and earned second-team All-SEC honors as a junior before turning pro. Richardson is size gifted with 35-inch arms and huge (10 1/4") hands, but was a college underachiever with sloppy technique and unpredictable effort. He was a sub-par college run blocker, lacks athleticism for the blind side and plays with inconsistent toughness. May 11 - 2:43 PM

Tennessee T Antonio Richardson posted an official 5.30-second forty time at the NFL Combine.

"Tiny" posted unofficial runs of 5.22 and 5.19 seconds, respectively, while his unofficial 10-yard split time came in at 1.81. Richardson possesses the agility and sheer strength to be a long-term option at either right or left tackle. Richardson would be a sure first-rounder if he had performed more consistently for the Vols, but his quality of play vacillates too wildly.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay placed Tennessee junior T Antonio Richardson ahead of Michigan senior T Taylor Lewan among 2014 NFL Draft prospects.

Richardson checks in at No. 15 overall, with Lewan just behind at No. 16. "Richardson is still developing his footwork and hand placement but has the size, natural mobility and strength potential to emerge as a first-round pick in 2014," writes McShay. Regarding Lewan, McShay writes "it isn't always pretty with him, but he's close to 100 percent effective at executing his blocking assignment." With think Lewan is mentioned in Jake Matthews' class too frequently, and Richardson is overlooked too often.

One NFC college scouting director was effusive in his praise for Tennessee junior T Antonio Richardson, believing the Volunteer is a first-round prospect.

The personnel man reportedly "gushed" about Richardson's massive size and strength. "He pointed to Richardson's performance against Clowney as a glimpse of his potential to develop into a premier offensive tackle at the next level," NFL.com's Bucky Brooks writes. "Although the scout expressed some concerns about Richardson's feet and lateral quickness as a potential left tackle, he believes the Tennessee star could be a difference-maker on the right side."

Tennessee junior T Antonio "Tiny" Richardson has lost 12 pounds this offseason.

That takes the offensive tackle down to around 315 pounds. "I feel a lot lighter on my feet," Richardson said. As a sophomore, Richardson pushed starting-worthy left tackle Dallas Thomas inside to guard. The Volunteer could draw some top 40 talk this season.

South Carolina junior DE Jadeveon Clowney thinks Tennessee junior T Antonio "Tiny" Richardson "is the best at holding and getting away with it."

Honestly, this is not a bad skill to have. Clowney said plenty of bulletin board type material during his portion of SEC media week, but no one wants to have that scary dude on their bulletin board. Richardson actually handled his matchup against Clowney fairly well, even sending the pass rusher flying to the ground on one snap.
