Alabama Crimson Tide running back isn't participating in drills during the 2012 NFL Combine but that doesn't mean he can't still sit on a scale and get weighed in. Richardson's official Combine measurement was listed as 5-foot-9 1/4 and 228 pounds. Many mock drafts have Richardson going in the first round and he likely won't do much to change that this weekend.
He wasn't the only running back of note to get measured Friday.
Oregon Ducks running back LaMichael James' official measurement at the Combine was 5-foot-8 even and 194 pounds, just a shade under his listed 5-foot-9, 195 pounds. He is projected by many as a third-rounder.
Miami Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller's official measurement was 5-foot-10 3/4 and 212 pounds. Miller is trying to make some noise this weekend as he hasn't come up on draft boards too much.
