Trend toward big corners works in Richardson’s favor

Representatives from 25 NFL teams — including the entire Arizona Cardinals coaching staff — were on hand to see 15 players from Arizona work out outdoors in perfect 80-degree weather.

Ka’Deem Carey, RB (5-foot-9 1/4, 209 pounds) — Carey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 and 4.69 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-5 broad jump. He also had 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Carey did field drills, too. However, he worked out with the wide receivers rather than doing running back drills, so his workout was good but scouts couldn’t see him work out of the backfield.

Marquis Flowers, OLB (6-2 5/8, 231) — Flowers ran the 40 twice in 4.50 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical jump and a 9-8 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.31 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.09 seconds. He had 24 reps on the bench press. Flowers moves around well in space, and has excellent hands for a defensive player (he recorded five interceptions in his career with the Wildcats).

Shaquille Richardson, CB (6-0 1/8, 194) — Richardson ran the 40 in 4.44 and 4.43 seconds. He had a 38 1/2-inch vertical and a 10-7 broad jump. He had a short shuttle time of 4.17 seconds and a three-cone time of 6.85 seconds. He had 14 reps on the bench press. He has long arms (32 inches), and the way NFL teams are trending toward bigger cornerbacks should work in Richardson’s favor. He could be a third-day draft choice.
