    check him out vs griffins baylor team

    A one man wrecking crew. He is too quick and powerful on the dline.

    Just a ridiculous athlete, I'm really curious to see what his 40 time is going to be. Obviously its impossible to actually tell by watching tape by I think it looks like hes got a shot to run a sub 4.8 40. And if he does that we can probably kiss him goodbye at 18, which will make me very sad. Probably my favorite prospect in this draft.

    this is my fear also. He is going to shoot up draft boards once the combine and prodays are over with. He looks insanely quick.

    I agree I love richardson... But the way I look at the draft is for everyone one that goes ahead of our pick someone has to drop... Glass half full kinda guy :)

    Pure man crush on that guy.

    Love how he drove RG3 into the ground on the read option.

    I don't think we'll have a chance to get Richardson. He's way to athletic to make it to 18. I'd say he's a better prospect than Cox last year and he went before 15.

    I was watching his highlights and the guy is so athletic I had to do a double take--I thought he was a linebacker.

    If his character issues check out, then he will get drafted before #18, IMO.

    If his character issues don't check out, then the Cowboys won't draft him.

    I hope Richardson is there at 18.

    He is pretty pure 3 IMHO and I am hoping that positional limit helps him reach 18.

    I don't know that he'd be a good DE in the 3-4 because he wears down versus double teams.

    Here we could lineup hatcher, richardson, ratliff, ware and have a really nasty foursome up front. crawford and lissemore backing them up. only need a speed rusher back up to ware.

    Floyd is a lesser athlete but has greater positional flexibility imho. I hope he goes earlier because we really need Richardson here.

    Yeah, I think (hope) Richardson might be there at #18 simply because he's going to be undervalued by 2 gap schemes. What a colossal waste of talent and athleticism to force this guy to play 5 tech (Darnell Dockett last year). The greatest risk with any draft pick are the "unknowns" that you have to project to the next level. There shouldn't be that many unknowns with Richardson. He plays 3 Tech in a Tampa system at Mizzou installed by Matt Eberflus, who should have good contacts left at Mizzou to get background on him. Should be a fairly easy transition for him.

    If the Cowboys scout say he is the best DT prospect since Warren Sapp, then the Cowboys will trade there 2nd round pick and move up to #10 and draft him.

    Happened last year.:)

    Floyd and Richardson are stars in this scheme.

    I'm getting pretty close to wanting Floyd, Richardson, L. Johnson, Warmack or trade out unless an elite pass rush guy like Jarvis Jones slips.

    though it is being projected like this but i dont think 3 DTs go in the top 17 (Star, floyd, and richardson)

    one of the latter 2 will be available and we better take him at 18 and not get cute

    I really think Floyd is our only shot. Star is a lock for the top 10 (if not top 5) and I think Richardson is going to blow up the combine to the point where he's out of reach of 18. I think if a few QB's go in the top 17 we have a real shot at Floyd at 18 though.

    This is exactly my list right now as well. In trade down scenario, I'd be looking at Fluker, Short, Cooper and Warford.

    That would be amazing. I can dream this will happen, until the combine and he blows up and goes in the top 10.
