My Mock NFL Draft: Don't Miss It, Even if Your Wife's in Labor

Tyron Smith.png
Tyron Smith: The next Dallas Cowboy?
The Cowboys need help at safety. Their 2010 pass defense was the worst in the 50-year history of the storied franchise and two culprits were Gerald Sensabaugh and Alan Ball.

Problem: The Cowboys won't take a safety with the 9th pick in tonight's NFL Draft.

Why? Because only UCLA's Rahim Moore is considered a primo pick, and scouts consider him a late-first or early second-round talent. Drafting for need would be a mistake.

Besides, coming off a 6-10 year and with a new philosophy under head coach Jason Garrett, there are several holes to fill: Offensive line. Cornerback. Defensive end.

I think the pick will be Southern Cal offensive lineman Tyron Smith. The Cowboys need fall-back, look-ahead plans as Doug Free is unsigned and Marc Colombo is on his last legs. Smith played only two years in college and is far from polished, but he'd be the Cowboys' left tackle of the future.

Garrett and offensive line coach Hudson Houck attended his pro day in L.A. and scouting director Tom Ciskowski can't help but gush about him.

Wisconsin's J.J. Watt is the other possibility as the Cowboys need upgrading at defensive end, where Stephen Bowen and Igor Olshansky are average at best.

I'll be on 105.3 The Fan from Cowboys Stadium at 6 p.m. trying to make sense of it all. The team's official draft-watching party will include exclusive war room video and audio, picks announced before you see them on TV, performances by the Cowboys Cheerleaders and autographs by former players such as Jay Novacek, Drew Pearson and Larry Brown.

It's free. And it should be fun.

And, oh yeah, allow me to throw my hat into the mock-draft ring.

Richie, these people must really hate their terrible lives so much that they have to go and find a random person that they can bash for no other reason than to make them selves feel better about their own pathetic lives. keep doin what your doin man. Your radio greatness and all these morons must think the same considering they still listen and read your stuff.

To broadcast only Cowboy's draft pick's, what is the correct ear bling for this occasion, hoop or stud?

Tyron Smith??? really???

Dallas will draft another black guy who will take the money and sit on his ass come game time. Woohoo...He will fit in well.

I'm not a listener of the show, so maybe the answer lies there. But I don't understand the repeated cracks about Colby Lewis. If he did something he shouldn't have, how come I haven't heard anyone else rip him for it, much less over and over and over again? Whats wrong with taking off to see your kid born? I thought people did that all the time. Someone enlighten me

Andy Dalton would make the Seahawks very happy if they could get him. Me thinks he's a good good.

Id like to be the first to welcome Richie back to his own blog. I like it much more when you reply and retort to the some of the stupidness that we put on in here

I was in the car with a coworker yesterday when he flipped to the Fan for a brief moment. I heard Richie Whitt say "Portland Trail Bitches". Really? So clever you asshole midget. It's a shame a great broadcaster (Greggo) has to be paired up with a bunch of no talent fools on that show.

"It's free. And it should be fun." Hanging out with you wouldn't be fun, even if it is free.

You just don't get it, do you? You're a hack. People only come here to kick you in the nuts, which 90% of the time you deserver. For fucks sake, even the title of this post is aimed at getting people to bitch about the Colby thing. Give it up.

Last night was my buddies birthday and he wanted to go to the scrip club. We had been there a while and a stripper comes over to sit down and asks me to buy her a beer so I do. Anyhow she then asks me why I havent been tipping any of the dancers, am I not having fun. I tell her I am having a great time, and she says how, you havent gotten a lap dance or tipped a dancer, cmon these are fantasies for you guys. I tell her my fantasy doesnt include a tatooed, stretch mark chick who has 3 kids and a boyfriend at home, sorry. The look on her face as she walked away was priceless.

So Norm, a real expect, is in New York having studied boatloads of information for months doing coverage, and people who are going to be listening (not watching, mind you) should tune in to the new dude trained to talk in "we" and "us" when he still doesn't even know the highway numbers here yet and Captain Douchenstein, who knows more about designer jean brands than NFL prospects? Isn't that like sending Jim Knox to interview Nolan? Why don't you guys just flush CBS's money straight down the crapper and save some time?

Here's the sign of a lowest-common-denominator station without a clue--incessant draft coverage. The longest Muser break ever was this morning when New Tools were talking about theoretical move-down trades. Wow. Compelling radio there. Where's Jagger when we need him? I'd rather listen to Kim Kardashian sing.

Speaking of Kimmie, Richie on-air is like Kim Kardashian's song. Technically, you can call it music/broadcasting, but it's awful, barely tolerable, no amount of producing will turn it decent, and it's an insult to the real professionals.

Hey boys, sorry I'm late, just got back from he clinic...had to pick up my morning after pill, can't remember whih radio spare drilled me last night, but I vaguely remember some overspray from paul gettin on me, richie couldn't swallow his whole load

epic fail

so let me get this straight:105.3 the Fail is sending a guy who knows as much about football as a sideline reporter in midgie whitt, a chuck cooperstein clone sans the sportsbrain Jets fan, and a middle eastern Redskins fan to cover the Cowboys draft?

why not get Roddy B on that broadcast too?he aint busy

Don't forget your milk crate. Will it be on tv? Looking forward to check'n out Dr. Maloof's work in HD.

Your writing/topics = Charlie Sheen show.

all this from the midget who predicted colt mccoy would "never take a snap in the nfl"

by the way, nice job of bruce gilbert electing to combine his 2 lowest-rated shows to do the draft.lol, wouldve been better off going to womens ncaa softball, buddy!

"Your radio greatness and..." is wrong for two reasons.

1. It's "You're"2. He's not radio greatness.

It was nothing more than a in for a desperate attempt at ratings. All you have to know is that Richie took time off to get hair plugs/extensions/transplant/whatever. He also full on admitted that he'd miss work if his wife was giving birth. He's a hypocrite.

Richie is obviously in need of attention so he says outrageous, ridiculous things to get that attention. He's a phony. He's an asshole midget.

You forgot to mention the part where she said "But at least you're not like that guy who needs a high chair to sit at the table and kept trying to get in our pants because he was on Inside Edition".

He also predicted that the Cowboys would win the Super Bowl last year, the Rangers would win the World Series in 5 games, Tim Tebow would never complete a TD pass in the NFL and most recently that Michael Vick would grace the cover of Madden '12. Oops.

I though the Cowboys would probably draft Tyron Smith as well, but now that Whitt called it...I think they will take Prince or draft down and take Castonzo.

Of course you would ignore what I said only to come back with a sarcastic, condescending retort.

I don't listen to your show. Again, a coworker flipped over there while we were on our way to the office. He heard you say "Portland Trail Bitches" and he changed stations. You couldn't pay me to listen to that garbage you spew and if we were in my car, the station would've never changed to the Fan in the first place.

And if you think I'm a "fan" you're sadly mistaken.

As your name suggests, its a free market, she chose to work in an industry where she can show her tits and beav to dudes who might pay her money, but just because she's nude doesn't mean anyone has to pay her, I mean why would they when I'm given away for free to any radio hack or wannabe

YO, trust me, I spent plenty of money on said "gals" I just didnt spend it for my pleasure, i spent it for the birthday guys pleasure. Was it an insult, or the truth, you tell me, her reaction pretty much answers that. And I wasnt, n r was anyone around me miserable. We had a blast. I guess mr free market must have 2 kids and a "gal" that work at a strip club. Lighten up dude, everything doesnt have to be so serious.

Actually, I'm here more often than you, as my hair is natural and thick and doesn't need enhancing. And my writing has less errors, which is ironic seeing how I comment only for the enjoyment of it.

Passive-aggressive will work well when you're big-timing it in Wichita's media market. I'll be sure to tune in whenever I roll through there.

It wasn't a joke. You're short. That's a fact. I never made Jimmy Johnson hair jokes to begin with, so no, I don't find them relevant. You and I would both kill for Jimmy's hair. The only difference is, I'm not so vain that I'm going to get hair plugs/transplant or whatever it is then miss work because of it..only to rip somebody else because he missed work to witness his child being born.

You're a sad, pathetic person. And an asshole midget.

yes another short joke, just like going to the well with the Colby banter in your title. Recycle it in your blog and radio gigs. Get back to sports writing in the Sportatorium.

I'll defend RW on this. I dig his predictions. If he's wrong, he's wrong, but he at least has a take and supports it.

Mishon

I don't want you to stop making predictions...I like knowing what's not going to happen after I hear what you predict.

I wouldn't give you such a hard time about it if you didn't pound your chest so hard every time you happen to get something right.
