Would the Browns get the best player in this year’s draft if they select Alabama running back Trent Richardson fourth overall on Thursday night?
ESPN analyst Bill Polian, the former president and vice chairman of the Indianapolis Colts, believes Richardson might be at the head of the 2012 class.
“The two quarterbacks, [Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III] -- because the nature of the position -- followed by Trent Richardson -- because he is such a dynamic player -- sort of set themselves apart,” Polian said this morning during a conference call.
“[Richardson] might be the best player in the draft. You could argue that. He has very few flaws. And even as nit-picky as we get at this time of the year, there’s very little to dislike about him or even very few nits to pick.”
