NFL Draft – First Round Recap

Here are some notes from the NFL Draft’s first day:

  • I’m sure QB Sam Bradford is fine with being drafted by the St. Louis Rams, but I’m sure he’d feel more at home if he was drafted by the Redskins.
  • The Detroit Lions drafted DT Ndamukong Suh. Instead of going after a wide receiver this year, they went after a wide human being.
  • The entire Oklahoma Sooners roster (including mascot and cheerleaders) were drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.
  • Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen still hasn’t been picked yet.
  • Chris Berman’s tie was more flamboyant than Perez Hilton singing any T.A.T.U. song while raiding Elton John’s closet.
  • Chris Berman’s tie wasn’t THAT flamboyant, but it was distracting.
  • For every white guy that got drafted in the first round, there was a white iPhone that they talked on. Coincidence? Probably.
  • What was up with ESPN Analyst Jon Gruden‘s haircut? Or I guess I should ask, what was matted down with Jon Gruden’s haircut?
  • Jimmy Clausen doesn’t have an NFL team to play for yet.
  • LB Rolando McClain got drafted by the Oakland Raiders. (That’s the joke.)
  • Mel Kiper Jr.’s job makes substitute teachers seem busier than the President.
  • Philadelphia should have drafted K Barney Gorman. They really need a garbage picking, field goal kicking, phenom.
  • The video feed of ESPN Analyst Ed Werder was so glitchy. It seemed like he was joining us live via Chat Roulette.
  • Does anyone want Jimmy Clausen?
  • This year is the 75th NFL Draft. Not surprisingly, Chris Berman has been to every single one.
  • I was nearly certain that the New Orleans Saints were going to draft QB Tim Tebow… As their mascot.
  • I was also nearly certain the Dallas Cowboys were going to draft Tim Tebow… Jerry Jones loves Tebow!
  • However, it’s the Denver Broncos that Tim Tebow is going to be an NFL bust for.
  • Speaking of busts, has anyone drafted Jimmy Clausen yet?
  • The Radio City Music Hall honestly looks like a gay bar swallowed a cubicle-filled office building.
  • It’s a good thing the Dallas Cowboys drafted WR Dez Bryant, just so Tony Romo has another elite wide receiver not to throw it to.
  • The Detroit Lions drafted Ndamukong Suh and RB Jahvid Best. They quickly wanted a “re-do” when they learned that neither one of them is a wide receiver.
  • Even Brady Quinn is laughing at the fact that Jimmy Clausen is still on the board.
  • There were more white people at Tim Tebow’s house than there are in an episode of Dawson’s Creek.
  • DT Dan Williams never sacked Tim Tebow but Tim Tebow sacked every second of William’s press coverage after he was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals.
  • USC S Taylor Mays is still available. But then again, so is Jimmy Clausen.


Austin hosts a country music morning radio show in Chicago after nearly a decade in sports talk radio (The Jim Rome Show, Steve Gorman SPORTS!) Colin Cowherd and Smash Mouth follow him on Twitter and he wears pants every day.
