    It'll be interesting to see who can stick around out of these guys. I feel like a lot of them ended up in decent situations. Making 53 man roster is the goal but as UDFA practice squad is the key ! Any predictions on who's the next great undrafted player in this class?!

    I think WR Mitch Mathews and DT Justin Zimmer have the talent to do well in the NFL. Whether they get the chance is another question.

    Zimmer signed with Buffalo, so he will be playing for Rex Ryan and may not get a fair shot.

    If he gets cut maybe a 4-3 team might pick him up. I think he's best suited for a 4-3 rather than Buffalo's 3-4. At any rate he has the talent to play in the NFL.

    Matthews to the Chiefs could be a huge steal for them! KCs wide receivers have struggled for years now. Only WR on their current roster worth a Damn is Maclin.

    I'll break down a couple of UW Badgers and where some of their standouts ended up as UDFA.

    1. QB Joel Stave to the Vikings. He has a real chance at making their team. MN currently has Bridgewater, Heinicke(undrafted last year), and 36 year old career backup, Shawn Hill. Stave should at least be able to make practice squad.

    2. WR Alex Erickson ends up in Cincinnati and I don't like it. He enters a crowded WR situation and he'll be competing for 6th string job. It's likely he'll be cut. Which could be a good thing, assuming he gets another chance somewhere else...

    3. LT Tyler Marz ends up in Tennessee. Again somewhat crowded on the OL but he'll be competing for a backup spot. Big guy who offers versatility will probably kick inside to guard or RT as a pro. Good chance he makes practice squad.

    4. Athlete Tanner McEvoy ends up on Seattle. If they play Him at Safety he'll be competing for a backup spot against affletic supa heroes like Steven Terrell, Kelcie McCray, and Robert Smith, lol. Should make PS at least but with Carroll running the show he could be cut at any time.

    5. Safety Michael Caputo to the Saints. Decent landing spot. He'll compete for backup spot against Vonn Bell, Jamaca Sanford, and Alden Darby. Good chance make team or PS.

    I looked up the NFL.com scouting report on Mathews and it used yet another peculiar, derogatory way of describing a white player. It called Mathews "a dull runner after the catch," whatever that means. Who cares if he's "dull." Does he gain yards?

    They usually only use such descriptions for white players, rarely for blacks. I still can't forget how one white player was described as having "boring feet" by one mainstream media scribe.

    It's amazing that the DWFs never seem to notice the anti-white bias in the scouting reports.

    I figured I'd leave this gem from Rotoworld here:

    "49ers UDFA Devon Cajuste is currently listed as a wide receiver.

    Cajuste was a wide receiver at Stanford, but his limited speed (4.62) and big frame (6'4/234) have led some to project him as a tight end. While he could possibly succeed as a pass-catching tight end, Cajuste has the short-area athleticism and ball skills to excel as a "big slot" receiver. On a team desperate for pass catchers, it is not out of the question Cajuste carves out a role."

    All I have to ask is, how in the hell is 4.62 considered "limited speed?" If that was the case, than the Vikings 1st round WR pick should be moving to TE as well then. A good percentage of WRs currently in the NFL would be moved to TE if teams listened to this moron.

    Moron is right.

    Why is a role as a slot receiver even under consideration for Cajuste? Oh, yeah, Cajuste is white and whites are only supposed to be slot receivers. Cincinnati once tried to convert Matt Jones to slot receiver and tried to get him to shorten his steps.

    Cajuste looks like an outside receiver. He should be playing split end.

    I read some of the comments about the Chiefs' 5th round pick, QB Kevin Hogan, on the blog Arrowhead Pride. Predictably, a high number of the comments are negative. It's part of the DWF psyche to always bash white players.

    Hogan was an excellent selection by the Chiefs. He was highly successful at the college level in a pro system. He'll be an inexpensive, good backup with some chance of developing into a starter. Not bad for a 5th round pick.

    I saw that the 49ers are going to convert Dt Alex Balducci to the offensive line. This is a disturbing newer trend and another way teams are now trying to get rid of white interior dlinemen.

    WR David Glidden earned a spot on the Falcons 90 man roster after a try out. I really hope many of this year's white wrs stick around in the league as UDFAs.

    Just wondering: Do they ever convert black defensive linemen to offensive linemen?

    Yes, but they do this with more Whites that are viewed as journeyman types. The only star I can recall was Mark Tuinei. He was a journeyman D-lineman who was about to be bounced out of the league and converted and turned out to be an pro bowl caliber tackle. I notice many times this happens to more White college prospects than in the pros though.

    His selection has more value than Cardale Jones who was all but called dumb as bag of rocks and lazy to boot. I suspect Hogan because of his intelligence will carve out a decent journeyman career while Jones will flame out of the league rather quickly.

    From what I have observed the trend of converting dlinemen to olinemen was started by the Seahawks when they drafted jr sweezy a few years back. Since then they have converted another white dline to oline. This year all of the pundits
    mentioned Connor wujciak and Justin Zimmer as potential converts to oline. I cannot recall this happened to a black dlineman.

    You're right, but how many chances did Terrelle Pryor get? Cardale Jones has that "upside"

    There's also a big trend of converting White DE and athletic White WR (with body profiles of 6'4" 205lbs) to TE, further restricting the "racially-appropriate" positions available to White football players.

    Ya just like most white HS Rbs end up as FBs or LBs and CBs moved to safety or WR... It's amazing the prospects we can still churn out despite the caste system in sports. Just as Jimmy Chitwood and White Lighting and some of our other track posters have mentioned. A lot of white kids simply aren't encouraged to be fast, to be athletic, to compete at a skill position. The system goes deep as others have mentioned racial slotting in positions begins at pewee level.

    Penn State DE Carl Nassib led the nation in sacks with 15.5. It was the only season that he started.

    Some commentators have suggested it's because he's a late bloomer. Maybe that's the case.

    But what happens often is that white players are denied the opportunity to play because of their race. This is another explanation of why Nassib only started one year. The fact that Nassib played so well in his only year suggests the reason he didn't start earlier was for off the field reasons, possibly because he's white.

    Nate Stupar is an NFL linebacker who also didn't start much at Penn State yet he's good enough to play in the NFL. So Penn State has a history of this.

    The SPARQ rankings rank players according to their athleticism. According to them Zimmer ranks first among DTs in this year's class, testing as more athletic than 98% of all NFL players.

    Wujciak ranked third, testing as being better than 93% of all NFL players.

    And yet he didn't even get drafted. What a disgrace.

    A good article on new Charger TE Hunter Henry in his first rookie camp:
    Hunter Henry Turns Heads at Rookie Camp

    Another one that mentions Bosa, Henry, and Watt
    "With chants of “Bosa! Bosa!” echoing throughout Chargers Park, the team’s first round pick took off both of his gloves, tossed them into the stands and began signing autographs for his newest fans.

    Over 1,000 fans spent Saturday morning catching their first glimpse of Bosa and the entire Bolts’ rookie class.

    They did not leave disappointed as over 50 players hit the field, including all eight draft picks. Many fans were eager to catch a glimpse of second round selection Hunter Henry, and cheered each of the tight end’s catches throughout the day. “That was unreal to hear them out there,” he said. “I can tell already this is a great fan base. I heard them, and we could feel their great energy and excitement. It was fun to finally be able to run around with the fans. It makes you want to compete even more.”

    I went to a Browns fan site, Dawgs by Nature, to see the reaction to the Browns trading the number two pick. They had a poll. 90% of the voters approved this stupid trade.

    The Browns had a chance to get a potential franchise quarterback and they screwed it up. When you have an opportunity like that, you take it. The Browns could screw up a one car funeral.

    I thought a lot of the fans would be livid. I read a number of posts and not one even questioned the trade. Everyone thought it was great. I didn't read all the fan comments, there were over 1,000, but I read enough to see how delusional these fans are.

    The reason they thought the trade was great is the guy who is running the Browns is Sashi Brown and Sashi Brown is black. Many whites are so badly brainwashed they believe blacks can do no wrong. They won't criticize them for any reason. The Cleveland DWFs approved of the trade because it was perpetrated by a black. DWFs worship blacks.

    Sounds like Mccaffery has checked in on caste football. Some of the comments after the article get me so heated. Some DWF dope is spewing the normal nonsense; "Just say it, there's no white guys that can hang with black guys once they get out of their segragated little leagues"...and "black QBs are still discriminated against, white athletes are given every opportunity and they're all busts..." It's enough to make you mental hearing that dumb ****.

    EDIT TO ADD: The issue is getting seriously heated over in the comments section of this article. It seems like half the replies are from aware whites.
