I sort of agree. On the surface it's pretty crazy to jettison the 3rd overall pick from after a little over a year but with the benefit of hindsight it seems to me that drafting Richardson that high (and trading up to do so) was far more egregious than moving him for a mid first rounder.
You sort of wonder if Richardson is going to be the last RB that you see drafted that high in quite some time... with the way that the league is moving I'm not sure anyone is going to be willing to spend a premium pick on a RB.
