Indiana DT Bobby Richardson Headlines RMI Athletics’ Three Signings
RMI Athletics’ owner/founder Ryan Rubin continues to grow his Atlanta-based agency with three signings for the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft. Now in their third year of operation, RMI Athletics has added prospects Bobby Richardson (DT, Indiana), Shaq Mason (OG, Georgia Tech), and Damian Parms (SS, Florida Atlantic).
They will be joining Rubin’s management team that also includes New York Jets DT TJ Barnes and Chicago Bears RB Senorise Perry.
Bobby Richardson (6’3 286 lbs) is a projected 3rd round pick by Optimum Scouting and the NFL Draft’s 4th best DT. NFL scouts have been impressed by Richardson’s versatility. During his 27 starts at Indiana, Richardson displayed his ability to be used in 3-tech situations or as a DE in a 3-4 scheme. As a co-captain for the 2014 Hoosiers, Richardson led the defensive line with 35 tackles to go along with his 5.5 sacks and 9.5 TFL on his way to earning honorable mention All-Big Ten honors.
USA Today 1st Team All-American, Shaq Mason (6’1 311 lbs) is a projected 7th round pick by NFLDraftScout.com and is the Draft’s 16th ranked Offensive Guard. Mason was a three-year starter at Georgia Tech and in 2014 he helped anchor an offensive line that produced the nation’s #1 ranked rushing attack (342 yds/game). Mason ranked first in the ACC in sacks allowed and third nationally this past season.
Damian Parms (6’2 215 lbs) is a big, physical defender and the 23rd ranked SS according to NFLDraftScout.com. A two-year starter at Florida Atlantic, Parms finished his collegiate career with 186 total tackles. In 2014, some of Parms’ best individual performances came during FAU’s two biggest tests. Most notably, Parms recorded a team high nine tackles at No. 22 Nebraska and at No. 2 Alabama he recorded six tackles (four solo). Parms will look to improve his draft stock as he competes in the 90th annual East-West Shrine Game on January 17th in St. Petersburg, Florida.
