Posted by bfreeman on April 25, 2013

It’s old man football time on Broadway.After selecting Dee Millner at number 9, the New York Jets selected Missouri’s Sheldon Richardson 13th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Richardson becomes the 6th Mizzou player drafted in the first round in the last 5 NFL drafts.  That trails on Alabama (who increased their lead in the first 13 picks with 4 players selected) and USC.

Richardson had 10.5 sacks in 2012 while tying for second on Mizzou’s defense with 75 tackles on the year.

For more on Sheldon, here’s the NFL.com profile on him before the draft.
