2012 NFL Draft: Trent Richardson Has A Prom Date

Alabama Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson

You can debate the merits of Trent Richardson and the value of running backs with early picks in the first round of the NFL Draft, but there is no disputing that Trent Richardson is one hell of a nice guy. Check this out. The Alabama running back and potential St. Louis Rams first-round pick is taking Alabama high school senior Courtney Alvis to her prom.

Alvis has leukemia.

Check out the video after the jump.

It's a pretty cool gesture from Richardson. Alvis, in addition to the whole leukemia thing, is dealing with the normal anxieties of a teenage girl before her prom. Having Richardson on her arm should ease some of the stress.

Alvis' uncle, a Bama fan, made the connection with Richardson to set up the date.

Whether the Rams take Richardson with the sixth pick or not, this is a nice side story in all the draft discussion that now seems to be chasing its own tail.
