Source: Richmond working out for Raiders on Monday
TCU offensive tackle Nic Richmond will participate in a private workout for the Oakland Raiders on Monday, according to a league source.
The workout will take place in Ft. Worth, Tex. and will be conducted by Raiders offensive line coach Jim Michalczik.
The 6’8”, 322-pounder from Garland, Tex. was a three-year starter for the Horned Frogs and is currently the NFP’s 26th ranked offensive tackle prospect. Richmond’s above-average size makes him an intriguing option in the mid to later rounds.
In addition to working out for the Raiders on Monday, Richmond will also visit the Chicago Bears at the end of the month.
Here’s NFP Director of College Scouting Wes Bunting’s take on Richmond:
A massive right tackle prospect with a huge wingspan and a thick upper body but a thin-looking lower half, Richmond lacks ideal awareness off the snap and struggles to get off the ball on time. He exhibits above-average flexibility for his size and can coil up surprisingly well in his stance. But he displays long, lumbering footwork and struggles to reach the edge in the pass game and to redirect with any kind of fluidity in space. He demonstrates some natural power in the run game to seal and stick to blocks, but struggles to keep his base down and get into blocks quickly as an in-line guy. ??
