Draft Scout Cyril Richardson News
01/25/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl, Missed Opportunity: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor - At 6-foot-4, 344 pounds, Richardson is a massive interior presence but he struggled with quicker defensive tackles throughout the week of practice (especially Donald) and wasn't nearly as powerful as a drive blocker as one might expect given his size. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Tuesday...Baylor guard Cyril Richardson and Stanford edge rusher Trent Murphy, two players who I've previously ranked highly, are thus far struggling to adapt to the different schemes used by the Atlanta Falcons' coaching staff. Richardson, a monstrous man at 6-foot-4 (and a 1/2) and 348 pounds is fine when asked to block straight-ahead, which he did so impressively on a few occasions against Donald, pancaking Pittsburgh's star on one occasion. Richardson's lack of ideal lateral agility and balance was exposed by Donald on numerous other snaps during one-on-one drills, however. More alarming was the inconsistency the former Baylor Bear showed during scrimmages, too often losing his balance and slipping off blocks. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/26/13 - CBSSPORTS.COM ALL-AMERICANS: FIRST-TEAM OFFENSE AS NFL DRAFT PROSPECTS: OG - Cyril Richardson, Sr., Baylor: A three-year starter, Richardson has lined up at both left tackle and left guard for the Bears over the years and was an integral reason behind the team's top-ranked offense in 2013 as Baylor averaged 624.5 yards per game. A large human being (6-5, 340 pounds), he has the brute strength to be a mauler in the run game and the light feet to hold up in space in pass protection. Richardson has room to improve his awareness and body angles, but he flashes a nasty demeanor and is a plug-and-play prospect who shouldn't last long on Day 2 of draft weekend. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/13/13 - 2013 WALTER CAMP FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: OL Cyril Richardson, Baylor, 6-5 340, Sr., Fort Worth, TX...Richardson's selection marks the fourth time in the Big 12 era that the Bears have had a player named to the nation's oldest college football All-America squad. Terrance Williams was a first-team selection last season and Robert Griffin III was a second-team honoree in 2011, and when Daniel Sepulveda was named to the first team in 2006, he became the first Bear honored since Santana Dotson in 1991.
A Fort Worth, Texas, native, Richardson is the second offensive lineman in program history named a Walter Camp All-American. Guard Bill Glass was selected to the first team in 1956. With his The Associated Press second-team All-America selection in 2012, Richardson is the fifth in program history to twice be named an All-American (Lawrence Elkins, Mike Singletary, Thomas Everett and Daniel Sepulveda).
One of three Outland Trophy finalists, Richardson helped Baylor to its first-ever Big 12 championship and a school record 11 wins. He is the leader for an offensive line that blocks for America's top offense. The Bears lead the nation in scoring (53.3) and total offense (624.5). Richardson has also registered a team-leading 83 knockdowns on the year. - Baylor football
12/12/13 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-BIG 12 FIRST TEAM: Offensive line Cyril Richardson (Unanimous), Baylor, 6-5, 340, Sr., Fort Worth, Texas.,...An All-Big 12 First Team selection for the second consecutive season, Richardson has led Baylor in knockdowns in 11 of 12 games for a team-high total of 83 knockdowns and has earned a team-high season coaches' grade of 89 percent as he led the team in coaches' grade in four of 12 games. - Baylor football
