FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - While nearly all of the media attention has been on Geno Smith at New York Jets rookie camp, Sheldon Richardson has impressed his coaches with some solid practices.
Richardson was a first-round draft pick two weeks ago - unlike Smith, who was a second-rounder. But the big defensive lineman out of Missouri wasn't even the Jets' first pick. That was cornerback Dee Milliner, who was taken No. 9 overall - four spots ahead of Richardson.
Milliner hasn't practiced, and probably won't fully participate until training camp in July as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. But Rex Ryan certainly likes what he has seen from Richardson, saying he has ``popped out'' on the field. Good start for the 6-foot-3, 295-pound lineman who stunningly once returned kicks in high school.
