Dolphins 2014 prospect watch: Antonio Richardson

The Phinsider isn't just preparing for the 2014 NFL season--we love college football, too. And this year's draft prospect class features some outstanding talent that will soon electrify Sundays the way it dominates Saturdays. This is a video series of the top 25 league-wide draft prospects for 2014.

Former Tennessee offensive tackle Dallas Thomas kicked over to guard for the Vols last season in order to make room for left tackle wunderkind Antonio Richardson.

Maybe the Dolphins should think about reuniting Richardson and Thomas next season.

Thomas, the Dolphins' third-round draft selection last April, did plenty of great work in tandem with Richardson last season, and while the latter player didn't have the best game of his life against the Gators in 2012, you can see the raw talent and tools he brings to the table. He's enormous. He gets to the second level in a breeze. He boasts excellent arm length. He has the feet to mirror and slide speed-minded pass-rushers. Yes, he gets caught lunging a few times on that tape, and there are a few instances in which he fails to sustain his initial block. Still, I like what I see on most of this tape, and that's why Richardson is quickly approaching kmb8488 bandwagon status.
