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. 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.
