Steve Doerschuk interviewed Cleveland’s head strength and conditioning coach Kent Johnston. In the interview, he discussed third round pick Trent Richardson-
“You know that old term, country-boy strong? He is country-boy strong,” Johnston said. “Trent’s the type of guy who, if he never touched a weight, he’d be a strong man. But he has really enhanced that by the work he put in at Alabama.
“And what we want to do … he has a strength and power ratio right now that can allow him to be elite, physically. I want him to maintain that, and I would like to work on things that can help him stay durable.”
Most draft picks coming out of college need to add strength to match the NFL game. Another reason to be excited about the Richardson era beginning.
