2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JORDAN RICHARDS: Stanford, 5111 211 4.62. Three-year starter from Folsom, CA who has seen steady progress as his career transpired. Richards was a team captain in 2014 and was the leader of the Cardinal defense. He is the quarterback of the secondary, constantly making calls and adjustments. He plays smart but his body doesn’t seem to react as fast as his head. Takes too many false steps for a player with his athletic ability, forcing him to be in catch up mode. His aggressive pursuit of the ball and reliable tackling ability can be an asset in any scheme. All around productive safety with the potential to be a starter down the road. Quick twitch, fiery defender. Aggressive style that brings a physical presence as a tackler. Responds well to downhill action. Diagnoses running lanes and will fly into the box ready to make the hit. Good tackler, willing to put his body on the line and makes the effort to wrap up. Shows speed to the outside, reaches the sideline fast. Good ball skills, times his leaps well. Easy hips and quick feet. Good balance and body control, efficient mover in space. Reliable in man coverage. Will take on blocks and accelerate off them. Takes poor angles towards the ball in space at times. Needs to show better awareness against the pass. Will be over-aggressive, creating massive cutback lanes. East-West Shrine participant. 2014 stats: 79 T, 3 FF, 3 INT, 5 PBU. BTR:left 4.84, right 5.02. OSR:12/19. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/8, H-9, VJ-32, SS-4.22).
