Arizona Wildcats NFL draft wrap-up: Richardson, Flowers drafted, Miller signs as FA with Jets


Former Arizona cornerback Shaquille Richardson will join another former Wildcat cornerback, Robert Golden, at Pittsburgh.

Richardson, who had 10 career interceptions with the Arizona Wildcats, showed his gratitude of his selection..

Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller, a Pittsburgh native and Steelers fan, congratulates Richardson but warns him about the winter weather there.

Arizona’s football program did some decent Photoshop work putting Marquis Flower’s mugshot over an existing Cincinnati player. Bottom line, Matt Dudek, Arizona’s recruiting coordinator, is trying to sell the program to recruits.

Flowers, a linebacker who started his Arizona career as a safety, thought he would become a Buccaneer.

Miller also has ties to Cincinnati having coached there at Xavier. Since the Bengals are the Steeelers’ rival in the AFC North, it was Rich Rodriguez offering Flowers his congratulations.

Terrence Miller gets his foot in the door as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets.

Surprising the Pac-12 was third behind SEC and ACC in number of draft picks. The ACC? Some of the standout Pac-12 players who were not drafted: Washington quarterback Keith Price, USC safety Dion Bailey and USC running back Silas Redd (formerly of Penn State). No quarterbacks from the Pac-12 were drafted, although that’s not much of a surprise with Price not grading high with scouts and UCLA’s Brett Hundley opting to stay in school.
