Tampa Bay likes Trent Richardson, may schedule private workout

No issues with Trent Richardson's knee at Alabama pro day 
Published on | shared via feedly
Last month at the NFL Combine, Alabama running back Trent Richardson did not participate in on-field drills after undergoing minor knee surgery.

Any lingering concerns after that procedure were put to rest today in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where Richardson starred in Alabama's pro day in front of a large contingent of NFL personnel.

The Bucs are strongly considering drafting Richardson, a Heisman finalist, with the fifth overall pick in next month's draft. But that's provided he's still on the board. Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert were on hand for today's workout, and the Browns appear to have Richardson on their short list.

Neither Bucs coach Greg Schiano nor general manager Mark Dominik attended, but the Bucs are in the process of arranging a private workout with Richardson.
