I simply think it's a stretch to take a DL with "upside" at 1.1, especially given what he'll need to refine.
Again, not trying to kill this player, as I think he's a good one.
I hate Sheldon Richardson the human being, so I'm incapable of seeing this objectively.
That said, Floyd did rape faces at the combine and it wouldn't take much development for him to be a legitimate stud. My only real worry is his arm length; guys could get to his pads a little easier because his arms are a little bit short.
