Missouri's Sheldon Richardson believes he should be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft

Missouri's Sheldon Richardson is best known for his statement about Georgia playing "old man football". He later apologized to Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt after his Tigers were whacked by the Bulldogs.

Richardson doesn't lack confidence and speaks his mind whether it's right or wrong. There's nothing wrong with being confident but it'll set you up for a letdown if you're not careful.

The outspoken Richardson sounds cocky and confident as ever going into the NFL Draft. Richardson proclaimed himself the best player in the draft and that he should be the number one pick.

“I see myself as the top pick, not a top-10 pick,” Richardson said Saturday at the NFL Combine. “I didn’t come into this draft to be second to anyone. If they see what they like — they’re going to get a (heck) of a ballplayer.”

Richardson should be a top 20 pick in the draft, but he'll be in for a rude awakening on draft day when hee isn't selected number one. The way he runs his mouth could have him slide down to the second round because you know NFL suits don't like players that run their mouth before they've proven anything on the highest level.

Richardson should learn to zip it before it costs him a few million dollars.
