Whether you like it or not, Richardson is already a successful RB in the NFL. Is he Doug Martin? No, Martin is a different type of RB. But he's a hell of a lot better than Moreno and Greene, that's for sure.
I think Richardson is a case where people just fell in love with the Alabama system more than the back himself, and scouts overlooked obvious flaws in his game. Is he a solid enough of a RB? Probably. Will he every be a top 10 RB? No.

Alabama backs are severly overrated because they play behind the best OL in college and play in the best power running system in college football.
