2012 NFL Draft: Browns Could Be The Favorites For Trent Richardson

It has been known for some time now that the Cleveland Browns are very interested in former Alabama Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson. With the 2012 NFL Draft just a week away, the consensus opinion appears to be that Richardson will be selected by the Browns in the first round, as the No. 4 overall pick.

According to Jim Corbett of USA Today, lead NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock is among the experts who feels that Richardson to the Browns is a near lock.

Mayock feels strongly the Cleveland Browns will select Alabama running back Trent Richardson, and not Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. "Cleveland's going to have a hard time passing on Richardson at No. 4.'' Mayock said.

Richardson could potentially transform an offense by adding a strong running game and seems like less of an inherent gamble than selecting Tannehill might be.

2012 NFL Draft: Browns Leaning Toward Trent Richardson?

The 2012 NFL Draft is fast approaching and the 30 pro teams need to begin solidifying their plans for the first round. Alabama Crimson tide running back Trent Richardson is a name that is getting a lot of renewed interest following his strong Pro Day performance on Thursday. One of the teams that appears most interested in Richardson as a potential first-round pick is the Cleveland Browns.

According to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland, Browns general manager Tom Heckert and coach Pat Shurmur had the option of splitting up and attending the Pro Days of both Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Richardson, but instead opted to both attend Alabama's Pro Day to watch the Richardson workout.

Asked directly if Richardson is under consideration for the No. 4 pick, Shurmur said this week at NFL meetings, "I'm not going to talk about my five guys (in the running). He is an outstanding player ... he's been very productive on a team that's won a lot of games."

In just a few weeks, we will find out just how much Richardson was able to impress the Browns representatives with his workout.

NFL Draft: Trent Richardson Has Visits With 3 Teams

The 2012 NFL Draft is just a month away and interest in top college players is reaching fever pitch among NFL teams and their fans. One of the most talked-about players in this year's extremely deep draft is former Alabama Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson.

Richardson was unable to participate in on-field drills at the 2012 NFL Combine in Indianapolis due to a minor offseason knee surgery, but did participate in Alabama's second pro day on Thursday. He definitely impressed and is drawing further interest from at least three potential NFL suitors.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, Richardson has set up private workouts with three of the teams who came to Thursday's Pro Day: the Cleveland Browns, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the St. Louis Rams. More private workouts with other teams may be forthcoming.
