    This is a very deep quarterback class. There could be as many as 13 quarterbacks taken in the draft.

    Interestingly, out of all of the quarterbacks thought to be draft prospects, all but one of them is white. White people can definitely play the quarterback position well.

    There is speculation that Western Kentucky quarterback Mike White could be drafted by the Patriots as the possible successor to Tom Brady. White played well in 2017 and had an excellent Senior Bowl. Some pundits have even suggested the Patriots could take him as high as their second second round pick.

    I’m surprised draft-cuck Rob Rang had the nads to post something so “racist”.

    I'm guessing that Lamar Jackson doesn't get past San Diego at 17, even though Philip Rivers is still playing. I suspect the AA head coach of San Diego wants an all black quarterback squad.

    Dammit I can't find it now but one of my mags says one upsider has a "vaulted ceiling."

    First time I've ever seen a football player described as having cathedral like qualities.

    It seems appropriate since a lot of DWFs worship blacks.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran an article yesterday about Justin Watson ("South Fayette Grad Opening NFL Eyes"). I hadn't realized he's from the Pittsburgh region until seeing it. Anyway, after listing his accomplishments at Penn and calling him "a 6-foot-2, 215-pound prospect with blazing speed" and a 40 inch vertical and noting he wasn't invited to the Combine, author Ray Fittipaldo asks the time-honored question that everyone who observes the recruiting process objectively already knows the answer to -- "So how did an NFL prospect get overlooked by the major Division I schools during the recruiting process at South Fayette?" The keep-a-straight-face answer offered this time is that Watson was a "late bloomer," offered by Watson himself despite being a star receiver in high school.

    Watson graduates next month from the prestigious Wharton School of Business, the same school Donald Trump often brags about attending, so that alone is reason enough for the NFL to feel good about screwing him over, much like Zach Zenner intends to become a dentist, knowing he actually has a plan for his life besides playing football. These true student-athletes are especially not wanted by a league that prefers almost exclusively ghetto dwellers with "unlimited upside" to hype in conjunction with their media partners.

    This is the only online link I could find, which is in a difficult to read format: https://www.pressreader.com/usa/pittsburgh-post-gazette/20180413/282050507648489

    The elephant is in the room and still No one has the balls to say it is a race issue, but only if you're a white guy! Late bloomer with zero evidence lol. It'd be one thing if that statement held any truth at all, but it doesn't apply to this situation.

    Gil Brandt, the one with the annoying as hell website, has just put out his Top 150.

    Since he doesn't go up to 250 which is around the number of draftees (256 I think) it is hard to tell how many white WR's he would list.

    The only one so far at 126 is Trey Quinn.

    I didn't see anything unusual about his Top 150 although he has DE Sam Hubbard at a low 63. MLB Josey Jewell is at 77. He does like MLB Vander Esch at 17. The QB's and TE's are roughly about where others have them.

    But the biggest thing that stuck out was he had CB/S Troy Apke at 147 which puts him squarely in the 5th round. While this is nice and all caution remains. Several of the "big" sites have him not being drafted. And several gurus including Matt Miller and Lance Zeirlien have no respect for Apke at all leaving him out of the draft. Zeirlien went as far to say Apke is not even good enough for an UDFA designation. Just a camp invite says this asshole. Truth is there are enough of these draft "guru" type pricks out there that teams abide by so this whole Apke ordeal won't be resolved until draft day. Still it is nice to see Brandt having him squarely in the draft range.

    Speaking of Safeties at Penn State junior John Petrishen is sort of in the mix. He is a 4.4 runner and had a great winter workout. But it will be an uphill climb with HC Franklin. Look how long it took him to start Apke. So once again I wouldn't get your hopes up too much.

    Apke ran a 4.34 40 yard dash at the combine. See below --you have to push the you tube to get it.

    While we are on the subject of the "hallowed" 40 yard dash I have been making the point that pro day 40 yard dash times are timed faster than Combine times. I have also argued the 40 yard dash is not the best way to measure speed. Ultimately the 100 yard dash is the best way but if you must take a short cut then the 60 yard dash will suffice which by the way is the standard for baseball. I also believe the 40 yard dash is especially useless for linemen on both sides of the ball.

    Now the 40 yard dash at the Combine is not as sealed or as accurate as a big time track and field sprint. It is still subject to variations and prejudices (hint). I still haven't figured out this one armed Griffin and his 4.38 40 time. To me they didn't start the 'clock" until AFTER he started. Revealingly his second run under more 'normal" circumstances was like a 4.58. No one is going to convince me there was not some monkey business involved in his first run.

    That said these hand times we see at pro days and in high schools are very SUSPECT. Now I have mentioned that you need to add about .05 to .08 seconds to a pro day run to equivocate it to an NFL combine time. For instance if a player runs a 4.41 on his pro day it would be like running a 4.46 or 4.49 at the Combine. I would go with the .08 difference.

    Below is an article that says the difference is even greater. May bore the crap out of some but if you are interested see below. Keep in mind we often see young HS black players recording 4.3 and 4.4 times but those times are usually exaggerated which helps grease their way into big time schools.

    Damn, Hubbard probably won't go in the first round now; hopefully we can still have Our Guys in double digits.

    Some of our defensive ends tested well and had respectable SPARQ scores.

    Kylie Fitts scored higher than 82% of NFL players, Joe Ostman 76% and Sam Hubbard 65%. This shows that white players have the athleticism to succeed in the NFL.

    Good stuff on Ramesh!

    I saw an article earlier on BSPN's sanctioned Black Supremacist subsite the Undefeated that Lamar Jackson could change the NFL if given the chance. I won't link to the article as anything from that site does not deserve to be linked here but they did mention wrist flick and made excuses for why Vick did not become the QB who revolutionized the position. They cite Deshaun Watson quite a bit for having a good stretch before blowing out his ACL - however they fail to mention how turnover prone Watson was in college (he will no doubt begin throwing INTs once their is enough film on him). They only mentioned the Gremlin twice and never detailed how he failed after NFL defenses caught up to him and his frail body could not take a pounding. All in all the same insanity of making excuses for black QBs. No mention as to why the NFL ignores whites at every skill position though.

    Dual threat quarterbacks in the NFL all meet the same fate, they get injured.

    Michael Vick is the poster boy for this. He was constantly injured. He only played a full season once in his 14 year career. He also wasn't very good, with a career quarterback rating of 80.4. The mainstream media presents him as a high quality quarterback that young black quarterbacks can emulate but he wasn't a high quality quarterback.

    If a team tries to use Lamar Jackson as a dual threat, running quarterback he'll get injured too.

    I actually read the Undefeated piece on Lamar Jackson that Leo refers to above. While some "minor" concessions were made towards mobile white QB's it is telling that most of the white QB's namechecked are either from the distant past or a current player nearing the end of the line like Alex Smith. The article implies the dazzling running QB's that might take over the NFL will be non white.

    They also somehow came to the sketchy conclusion that Michael Vick never reached his potential as he was being held back by the system.

    The article has an underlying purpose and it is to push the BLACK SUPERMAN philosophy down the public's throats. It is a stark but simple notion. That certain black athlete's are "god like" and that people should reconfigure who they actually worship in church, certain black athletes or God.

    Case in point. Another SUPERMAN in the wings in this draft is RB Saquon Barkley. Hyped to the heavens for nearly two years now practically a day hasn't gone by without the media exulting in his "otherworldly" talents. By the way having watched a lot of Penn State games I am not totally sold on this guy and actually think you can get a comparable RB later in the first three rounds. He is good but as usual the media has gone into overdrive.

    So there he is on the new cover of Sports Illustrated shirtless basking in some holy lights ( why no shirt I ask) with the quote "Why Should I NOT Go No.1." then below the quote is this. "Some say he's the perfect running back. He say's he's so much more."

    OK I am thinking to myself what is better than perfect. Oh but of course the Black Superman who possesses god like powers and mystical ways that will lift the human race towards heaven.

    This is an understatement but don't you think this is all a BIT MUCH?

    Oh well welcome to another caste-o-holic NFL draft!

    White liberals literally worship blacks. They've replaced God with black people. All the qualities that are traditionally ascribed to God white liberals ascribe to blacks. They regard black males as Christlike figures. To them, and they say this, "racism" is the greatest "sin." Worse than murder, torture and rape.

    If you observe their words and behavior you'll see this is true.

    Just checked three more mock drafts - 53, 56 and 62 whites were picked. The drafts with 53 and 56 were CBS and NFL.com 7 round mock drafts and the the 62 was from drafttek. Again the lack of any deviation is pretty startling to anyone with half a brain especially from CBS and NFL.com because they are both huge cogs in the caste system. White players would have a better case for a discrimination suit due to the 25% cap on white players taken in any draft than the Toucan has with his laughable collusion case.

    Army OT Brett Toth was generating 3rd/4th round buzz early on during the draft process. Now due to his military obligations he has been moved to UDFA. Rang or weenieworld cannot even get the branch of the military he is in right. I just like to bring this up because as we all remember hyped up Navy quotaback Keenan Reynolds was able to work around his obligation after attending the Naval Academy. He has turned out to be a bust in the NFL after being drafted in the 6th round.

    NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang lists Army T Brett Toth as a potential UDFA that will sign after the draft.

    Rang believes that the two-year commitment to the Navy will keep him from being drafted over draft weekend, but also cites his inexperience as a pass protector hurting those chances, too. "Toth likely goes undrafted," Rang writes, "but he has an intriguing skill-set that a forward-thinking general manager should secure." We'd love to see Toth get his name called on Friday or Saturday, but Rang's logic makes sense.

    Magic man Lamar Jackson scored a whopping 13 on his wonderlic. Isn't that like on a 7th grade level! He has "dat magic upside" though.

    If I see the words "exciting" "upside" "blank canvas" or "electric" in conjunction with this wannabe Lamar Jackson again I think I will throw up.

    I will walk... I promise, I'LL WALK... if that guy winds up on the Dolphins.

    Total 180-degree-opposite fit for the franchise and coaching staff, being propped up by his local homie contingent here in South Florida and the PC crowd. That genre of QB IS NOT THE "FUTURE" in the NFL.

    Mobility at the QB position is the single most overrated and overhyped facet of football at any level today.
