BR StudiosFeatured Columnist IVNovember 9, 2016

Sheldon Richardson has a chip on his shoulder. He's not shy about telling you that he's out to prove his doubters wrong. He also does not lack self-confidence.

Richardson will be the first to tell you he's one of the best defensive tackles in the 2013 NFL draft. He's probably right. 

Richardson had academic issues and played two years of junior college ball before starring at Missouri. At 6'2" and 294 pounds, Richardson looks like a classic 3-technique defensive tackle with his unique combination of speed, quickness and size.

Check out the video above as Sheldon Richardson tells us in his words why he will be a star in the NFL.

Where will Richardson go in the 2013 NFL draft?
