    That's a good article. Zach was getting a fair amount of respect before the draft and continues to after the draft, except of course from the 32 NFL teams who passed on drafting him. If he's to get a chance in the NFL, at least he signed with a team where it'll only take two or three injuries to "real" running backs for him to possibly see the field in the regular season.

    That was a very fair look at Zenner, about what I would have written after seeing him play a few times last year. IMO he should be considered a 3rd string back in his rookie year on every NFL team, but we know why he is not.

    Zenner has an uphill battle for sure - he will need to stay totally healthy through training camp/preseason, perform very well and have the injury bug hit the position in Detroit to some extent. I am pulling for the kid and hope he defies the odds that have been dealt to him. He is a great talent and would easily be a 1000 yd rusher in the league.

    Thanks for posting this article on Zenner..was just about to post it(been too busy or would have earlier)...some nice video clips/GIF's included...

    Props to a black man in the comment section (T Phillips) for having the stones to CALL OUT the BLATANT RACISM with Zenner not being drafted! Saying that a black RB with the same skill set would have been drafted Rounds 3-5...

    Brandon Scherff was drafted high in the draft and was the only white man drafted in the first round.

    Scherff is projected to play right tackle or guard in the pros and some in the mainstream media say he's not suited for left tackle.

    I remember them saying the same thing about Riley Reiff in the 2012 draft and he developed into a good left tackle.

    I counted the number of whites drafted in the 2015 draft and I came up with 40.

    Does this sound right? Did anybody come up with the same number?

    Garrett Grayson goes to a good situation in New Orleans. He can develop under Drew Brees without being thrown into the fray too early. This maximizes his chances when he finally does play.

    It depends on the player but for most it's probably best to be brought along slowly. Troy Aikman started for a 1-15 team his first year. He said he thought he would have been better off sitting his first year.

    White players are on a short leash. Matt Barkley and Johnny Manziel played in their rookie years and didn't do well. They were immediately written off as bad quarterbacks by the mainstream media.

    This was poor analysis and was also unfair. Sometimes it takes time for players to develop.

    I am interested to see how Grayson does as well. He went to a good situation as the Saints seemed to really covet him as the successor to Brees. Payton did a good job developing Chase Daniel so I think he will do the same with Grayson. The saints also have that Griffin kid from Tulane they signed a few years ago as an UDFA. He is an intriguing talent that may be end up on a qb needy team down the road.

    Yeah, 40 or thereabouts is about right for total whites drafted. Normally its in the mid 50's.

    Dante Fowler, taken by the Jaguars as the third pick of the first round last week, torn an ACL in his first practice and is out for the 2015 season.

    I saw a very good documentary called "Bigger Stronger Faster" a few years ago where an ex football star was saying that he started taking steroids because "everybody who was doing well was taking them". I tend to believe that.

    Defensive end Davis Tull ran a 4.57 40, a 1.52 10, had a 42 1/2 vertical, an 11'00" broad jump and lifted 225 lbs 26 times. He also had 37 sacks in his college career.

    He was called an "average athlete" by NFL.com. They also said "he doesn't have the athleticism to be an every down linebacker." Seriously. Look and see.

    The mainstream media says that about almost all white athletes, that they're not athletic. I remember them saying it about Luke Kuechly, who has elite athleticism.

    The mainstream media racially stereotypes white athletes as unathletic. It's not an accident. It's part of the cultural Marxist initiative to demean white men any way they can.

    Tull was drafted in the fifth round by New Orleans who got a steal. He's a perfect fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

    Bryce Petty was downgraded because he played for Baylor's spread attack. It was apparently presumed it would be difficult for him to learn to play in a pro system so he dropped to the 4th round.

    Robert Griffin played for Baylor's spread offense yet he was considered a genius who would have no problem adjusting to a pro system.

    Griffin scored 24 on his Wonderlic and Petty scored 31.

    They played in the same system yet the mainstream media didn't see any problem for Griffin adjusting to the pros but saw a problem for Petty, even though Petty scored higher on the Wonderlic.

    Talk about a double standard.

    Great points, and everybody seems to forget about Nick Florence, who broke almost every last one of Grimlens records in his one year as a starter. Petty is 10 times the QB RG ever was. It should be obvious to anybody. I live here in Baylor country, and Im ashamed to say that people are idiots about Griffen. THey act like he hung the moon.

    Defensive end Kyle Emanuel of North Dakota State was another underdrafted white player. He was taken in the 5th round by San Diego. He should have been taken much, much higher.

    His last year in college he had tremendous production. He had 97 tackles, 19.5 sacks and 32.5 tackles for loss for a division 1B program. He played well against top competition.

    At 6-3 255 he ran the 40 in 4.77 but plays even faster. Vertical 34, broad 10 00, 3 cone 7.10 and 27 lifts.

    He had the measurables, the production and the tape to be a much higher pick but he's the wrong race.

    He's an ideal fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.

    If given a fair chance in San Diego, and that's a big if, he will do well.

    Linebacker Ben Heeney from Kansas was drafted by the Raiders in the fifth round.

    Heeney was a running back in high school. His senior year he rushed for over 2000 yards and scored 39 touchdowns.

    When he went to college he was converted to linebacker. Being converted to linebacker is common for white running backs. An automatic conversion to running back is done to white running backs but not to black running backs.

    Do you wonder why this is almost always done?

    Leftists run college and pro football. They have a policy of the ethnic cleansing of white men.

    The leftists have forbidden white men to play running back just as they have forbidden white men to play cornerback. That's why so few white running backs or corner backs are found in the college or pro ranks. College and pro programs follow the leftist policies.

    The leftists keep pushing for white men to be replaced at all positions. The ultimate goal is to exclude white men from everything.

    Don't believe it? Think that's far fetched?

    Take a good look at the society around you. Take a look at the 2015 draft.

    Only one white man was drafted in the first round of the draft. Only 40 white men were drafted in the whole draft. These are all time lows.

    Bryce Hager from Baylor was drafted in the seventh round by St Louis. The Rams got a bargain with this player.

    Hager tested out well athletically with good speed. He had 114 tackles in 2014.

    Hager is good in coverage and would fit well as a weak side linebacker in a 4-3.

    Penn State linebacker Mike Hull signed with Miami. Hull had 140 tackles in 2014. He has decent athleticism. Hull was voted Big Ten linebacker of the year.

    Hull has a chance to stick at middle linebacker.

    This thread has over 129,000 views.

    That shows there's a lot of interest in Caste Football and the perspective it offers.

    This thread has averaged over 8,000 views a day even since the Draft ended. That's impressive even for a lot of high-posting DWF type forums.
