NFL Draft rumors: Colorado State C Weston Richburg’s stock is ‘rising quickly’


As the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, we will begin to hear that a number of players are becoming “risers” with their draft stock soaring. One of those players who is on the rise is Colorado State Rams center Weston Richburg, who could take advantage of a thing class of centers.

Rob Rang of CBS Sports writes that Richburg’s stock is “rising quickly” and that teams will take a good look at him over the next couple of months.

“Richburg showed the anchor to handle powerful bull-rushers, as well as impressive agility in getting to the second level,” Rang wrote.

After  Arkansas’ Travis Swanson, who many believe to be the top center in the class, there are a handful of players who could be the second center of the board.

If Richburg is able to have a strong performance at the NFL Scouting Combine and impress teams during the interview process and team meetings, he could find himself selected on the second or third day of the draft.
