We might land Richardson at pick 16

The Redskins trading for the 2nd pick over just change the outlook of the draft. More after the jump.

The top 2 picks has been set in stone. With Luck and RG3 off the board. The Vikings has RB named Adrian Peterson so its a good chance the going to pick Matt Kalil. At the 4th pick the Browns need a receiver so they may pick Justin Blackmon instead of Trent Richardson if they can lock Hillis up before the draft. With the 5th pick the Buccaneers is expected to pick Morris Clairborne. Now depending on what the Rams does. They may want to go receiver since Brandon Lloyd is leaving. They may pick Michael Floyd or another rising receiver. The Rams may trade down again and stay with Stephen Jackson. Things get nicer now because the Jaguars also needs a receiver or they may go defensive and pick Ingram or Coples but not Richardson because of MJD. Here comes the Dolphins next. The Dolphins may want to go with another receiver. They may pick Trent Richardson because of Reggie Bush not being a everydown back but if Manning signs with the Denver or the Chiefs then they may have to go with Tannehill or Matt Flynn. Since Tannehill may come cheaper. They may go that route. Lets root against Manning going to the Dolphins for this reason. In that case Richardson falls further. The Panthers need another corner so they may pick Kirkpatrick at the 9th pick since they have so much money invested at RB. The Bills has a 2 RB's so they going defensive. Next up is the Cardinals which may pick defensive. They placed a high tender on Stephens-Howling so they have faith in him. I don't trust the Cardinals. They may pick Trent or allow a team to jump and take take him. The Seahawks just wrapped Lynch to a big deal so the 14th pick is out of the question. The Cowboys may want to go corner because Murray showed that he can carry that team. The Eagles got McCoy so RB for them is out of the question.

Barring any unexpected leap from teams behind us or a team going with the conventional best player on the board. We may get Richardson. The only teams that are in our way are the Rams, Dolphins or the Cardinals. If Richardson pass the Dolphins. I would expect Tanny to execute a trade any of those teams before us. Its highly unlikely that picks 9-12 gets traded due to critical needs on each of those teams. If I was GM I would try to jump over the Cardinals because they may try to take Richardson
