    Some additional content for viewing.. good comments from Nigel Burton addressing the typical caste white running back speak.

    Good comments from Burton, but lol at the other analyst being a White female, and another one the moderator. Three people talking football and none is a White man. Just shows again how the Caste System in football is here to stay, as it's expanded from the field of play through all the visible elements of everything that is now televised, whether sports related or not.

    Lamar Jackson declares for draft. Only positives (of course) from the Caste media. I'm sure there will be nothing negative said about him like they did, incessantly, with White dual-threat QBs like Tebow, Manziel, and now Baker "Throat Slash Gesture" Mayfield. He'll probably be taken by the Redskins if they don't keep Cousins or maybe Gruden will throw Carr under the bus and take him.

    More Senior Bowl invites. A few of the underclassmen who have graduated have been invited:

    Brian O'Neil OT - Pitt
    Taylor Hearn OG - Clemson
    Scott Quessenberry OL - UCLA
    Brett Toth OT - Army
    Harrison Phillips DT - Stanford

    Still waiting on Josey Jewell's invite. I am guessing it will be announced in the last round of invitees.

    I watched that 5 minute clip - that blonde was terrible in the interview as well as when they were back on the set discussing Nall.

    QB Josh Allen going to be attending the Senior Bowl. Smart move by him as he does have alot of question marks due to his drop off from 2016 to 2017. If he performs well it should cement his status as a top 20 pick.

    The Bronco's play-by-play man and colorman were pushing the Broncos to draft him during their season-ending press conference. They spoke very highly of him.

    Anything on Air force RB Tim McVey? Pretty sure he averaged upwards of 6 ypc! Havnt heard of any mentions of him. Btw great to hear about Nall declaring! I see Nall as a faster and less shitty of a person Lagarette Blount!

    It will be interesting to see who picks him. Kiper has him listed as the 7th best overall QB in the '18 draft. Will a team pick him before the White QBs ahead of him because of the color of his skin? It will be very telling.

    With four true potential first-round quarterback talents - Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, and Baker Mayfield, plus intriguing prospects like Luke Falk and Mason Rudolph, we all know what Lamar Jackson really is - a token to represent da brothaz in this year's QB draft class.

    This years QB class is the best one we've had for a good bit of time. It's special with the 4 guys you mentioned in Rosen, Darnold, Allen, and Mayfield all potential Pro-Bowl calibre Franchise QB's! With a few others becoming above-average starting NFL QBs in namely Mason Rudolph, Luke Falk, and Drew Lock! Also a couple wildcards in Jarett Stidham , and Riley Ferguson.

    On top of that this QB class is relatively Quota free, with only 1 legit Quotaback prospect in Jackson! Unlike the past 3 or so years which has been littered with Quotabacks.

    The Senior Bowl has invited a one handed black LB to the game. Not knocking the guy for a handicap but at the same time Josey Jewell still does not have an invite, Joey Alfieri is about to be written off like many other good Stanford LBs, Trent Tanking from KSU who was one of the best coverage LBs in the country, Ohio Tackling Machine Quentin Poling could all very well be invited to the Senior Bowl.

    Looking to be a good class! Lock and Stidham will be back in CFB next year though and should be among top QB prospects along with Clayton Thorson.

    Ferguson, too. Thorson may have to take a redshirt next year because he tore his ACL in the bowl game and full recovery is 9-12 months.

    My bad, he is a Sr. I hadn't heard much talk about him, so I checked a site and it listed him as a Jr. Must've been fake news. I wonder why he isn't getting more hype then.

    No problem! Yea he is getting overlooked due to how deep this class is. He is a Shrine game invite and assume he will be a combine invite. This year is loaded with QBs but I heard Mike Florio say the other day that the experts do not think this class is as good compared to the 2017 class which is ridiculous. In a league dominated by aging vet QBs this is the type of QB class the NFL needs to replenish depth/develop as the next generation.

    Is Mayfield a legit 6"1 ? They were talking about him on the fighter and the kid saying he was really small. Is he going to measure 6"1 at the combine ? Would love to see him do well regardless want more white QB's who can rush

    Their "really small" comment is part of the Caste media's Fake News campaign against him. Rivals, 247Sports and the official OU athletic site list him at 6'1".

    Not sure if it's legit or not, but here's a BSPN article on Russel Wilson, with a sentence in it that starts with "Wilson is not small...", even though he measured 5'10 and 5/8", because he had "the fourth largest hands" of any QB at the combine and ran a 4.55/40 (as if that has anything to do with height). They also admitted in the article that he "did have the third shortest arm length for any quarterback at the combine."

    But, all you need to remember is that Baker Mayfield is "really small" at 6'1" (unofficial) while Wilson "is not small" at 5'10 and 5/8" (official), got it? ;) The Caste media told us so, so it must be true. It's not like they have an agenda or anything to destroy the value of a superb White dual-threat QB for the upcoming NFL Draft.

    Generally athletes and people round up to the nearest inch, Wilson lists his height as 5'11" on his football cards so Mayfield should be at least 6' if not a legitimate 6'1", but the media has been speculating that Mayfield is a sub 6' prospect, I can't see that as only basketball and pro wrestling have totally inaccurate height listings.
