2013 NFL Draft: New York Jets Select Missouri Defensive Tackle Sheldon Richardson

With the number thirteen pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the New York Jets have selected Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. Richardson is the top-rated defensive tackle in the draft, with comparisons to the Bengal's own Geno Atkins. This marks the third defensive linemen in a row taken in the first round by the Jets.

Richardson was rumored to be a target for the Raiders all the way up at the three spot, and then again when they picked at twelve, but he tumbled down until the Jets ended his fall at thirteen. As a quick, pass-rushing defensive tackle, Richardson should be able to step in and contribute on day one.
