Sheldon Richardson insists he runs a 4.7 forty and has a 31-inch vertical jump. He also benches 325-pounds and squats 595.

Final senior (9-3) stats: 88 tackles, 15 sacks and one interception; 25 receptions for 517 yards and seven touchdowns. Richardson also has three kick returns for 117 yards.

Richardson: "I have a good mix of strength and speed. I have a quick first step and a lot of explosiveness. People don't realize how fast I really am. I have sleeper speed.

"I want to be more consistent and go hard on every play. I need to not take any plays off and improve my stamina."
