Draft Diamonds Free Agent Interview: Chris Richardson, Defensive Back

Former Urbana defensive back Chris Richardson is hoping to catch the eye of an NFL team. He recently sat down with NFL Draft Diamonds writer Justin Berendzen.

Hello, I am @jrberendzen on Twitter and this is one of my free agent interviews where I ask very deserving free agents questions about the players themselves and about what a team would get in these players. All of these players should get picked up by NFL and CFL teams and get a shot at being a career football player. So I hope you all read this interview and follow Chris’ journey on Twitter @Lilchris47_
