NFL: Browns OC Turner Thinks RB Richardson Can Be Like Emmitt Smith or LT

Jul 24 2013, 10:57pm CDT | by

Clevelend Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner believes running back Trent Richardson has what it takes to be as great as his former players Emmitt Smith or LaDanian Tomlinson.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson as the next Emmitt Smith or LaDanian Tomlinson?

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, this is certainly what Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner thinks

"Just watching him and seeing him against us when I came here in October and then watching the tape, yeah, he's that type of runner. Obviously, he's the third pick in the draft. I think he has a lot of great days ahead of him. I always have a problem comparing players because each guy has his own unique style, but I think he's capable of doing great things."

Richardson happens to hail from the same Pensacola, Fla. high school as NFL greats Smith and Tomlinson. 

Turner also believes Richardson will be in for a 300-carry season, in spite of current pass-oriented trends. 

"Obviously, the trend in the league is to not do that, but I think it depends on your team and everyone around it. If that player is your best player, then I think it's probably a good thing to have him in the game and give him the ball. So I would hope Trent would have that many carries. That means he's playing healthy and playing at a pretty high level."

Turner was hired by the Browns to be their offensive coordinator back in January. When he coached the San Diego Chargers in 2012, he already marveled at Richardson's abilities at the running back position. 

The particular game that stood out was Cleveland's 7-6 victory in which Richardson had 122 yards on 24 carries which included a 26-yard run for a touchdown. 

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com says should Richardson get at least 300 carries and match his receptions from 2012 (51) , he would put himself in a position to have 350 touches next season. Such a number would put him in the top five in the NFL. Arian Foster led the way in this department with 391 in 2012.  

Richardson had 267 carries for 950 yards for 11 touchdowns in 15 games last season.

Jul 21 2014 1:07pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Celebrities on the Red Bull Energy Station
The 2014 NFL season will be remembered for two things: The end of the San Francisco 49ers dominance and Tony Romo’s final game as a Cowboy.

Colts will give Trent Richardson first shot at starting RB job

Denver Broncos v Indianapolis Colts
Trent Richardson averaged just 2.9 yards a carry after arriving in Indianapolis last season, and he was even worse in the playoffs. Under ordinary circumstances, a player who performed like that would have a tough time earning any job at all. But in Indianapolis, where the Colts gave up a first-round dra ...

Oregon State v Oregon
Though football is a team sport, individual stats matter, especially in a league of 128 teams with full rosters. Predicting which single guy will lead an individual statistical category is a bit like forecasting the weather for next November, but history and current trends can give us a decent idea in both cases. Here’s a look at seven major stats and the guys with the best chance of being at the top of the heap.   Passing Yards The No. 2 passer in yards last season—Oregon ...

San Francisco 49ers: Potential Replacements for NaVorro Bowman

Jun 10 2014 1:54am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

NFC Championship - San Francisco 49ers v Seattle Seahawks
With NaVorro Bowman slated to miss the start of the 2014 NFL season recovering from his torn ACL, the San Francisco 49ers linebacking corps will look a little different to start the year. Bowman’s replacement is actually quite easy to find—it looks like it will be Patrick Willis sliding over to take over Bowman’s “Jack” linebacker position.  While the two inside linebacker positions are similar, there are a couple of differences. "You just tend to be a little more in ...
