    Great thread.

    I've been checking out some of the highlights videos, scouting reports, and college production stats of some of the black WRs and LBs who were taken in the first few rounds this year, and it's more unimpressive than ever. Most of them have some "athleticism" going for them and not much else. Many have weak football sense, another area where Whites dominate, which is why so many eventually fade out of the league after receiving copious opportunities. A nice 40 time doesn't mean anything if a linebacker is slow analyzing plays. The Caste System is relying on a black talent pool that diminishes each year, but like everything else presented or endorsed by the media, the agenda keeps intensifying relentlessly and brooks no opposition.

    Thanks CelticDB...nice LBer thread too! Will be sure to add to it

    Thanks Don...it's always interesting to get your observations that the Caste-pool of talent is dwindling..bec it's slim pickings in the HS Recruiting Srvices....the cookie-cutter stereotypes get old...raw; explosive; upside can also be included for white athletes as well...Riley Stapleton (who was also a good basketball player) is just one example

    Thanks Dolphins15...nice additions :clap:....it was getting too late last night & did this in a hurry....was going to add most of them on next post.....those players were Regulars on the Weekly Stats threads... glad you mentioned what Andy Isabella did to Miss.State of the SEC..probably should have listed him ahead of a few of the WR's posted

    It would be cool to have a round-table dicussion in person w many of you knowledgeable posters :cool:

    WHO will be the Next WR to emerge/pop up out of nowhere??

    Thomas Hennigan (Soph.) 6'-2" 210 Appalachian State ...impressive as a Freshman last season...45-585 yards & 7 TD's...will have a new QB; Taylor Lamb graduated
    [​IMG]

    Tony Ellison
    (Sr.) 5'-11" 188 Arizona..... 33 rec for 496 yards & 3 TD's + in Bowl game vs. Purdue had 2 TD's on 4 receptions for 102 yards/ 36 yards rushing on 3 carries & TD ...plays with a Run 1st QB
    [​IMG]


    *Tommy Stevens (Sr.) 6'-5" 232 .. Penn State (Sleeper Project) he is a QB/ Trace McSorley's Back up.(had 4 rushing TD's from the Wildcat & RB?)...in limited time played WR toward end of season & caught 2 TD's . He decided not to Transfer...would like to see him play WR Full time where he could thrive!

    Continued thanks Dolphins15..... Weekly Stats last year for the FCS; Gueller was a name that came up from time to time w Watson; Weineke; Horsted etc; intriguing prospect!

    Kyle Sweet is versatile !

    Mike Dudek (Sr.) 5'-11" 185 Illinois .... burst on the scene as a Record Breaking Freshman (76 rec / 1,038 yards & 6 TD's) & 6 carries/73 yards back in 2014' ...then Injuries have derailed his career / 2 ACL's on same knee
    Finally played again last season(*Jr.) had 24 catches for 262 yds & TD(missed 5 games).....Hoping he can bounce back & have a strong Senior season!
