    Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa is projected by many to be a top 10 pick in the 2019 draft. He looks to be a good overall player who can rush the passer. Nick is the brother of outstanding defensive end Joey Bosa, who plays for the Chargers, so he has the bloodlines.

    I believe he will be the #1 pick in the draft next year. Many believe he has even more potential than Joey and he recorded 16 TFL last year while rotating WITH 3 OTHER DE’S WHO WERE ALL DRAFTED IN APRIL. That’s insane, and he was only a sophomore, as a full time starter he should have an even better year and show that he can be just like his brother or better. Joey even stated in an interview the other day that Nick is further along than he was at his age. Big things to come from the Bosa family!

    Along with the afforementioned #1 pick Bosa, we have a nice amount of other projected 1st rounders!
    QBs- Justin Herbert Oregon, Shea Patterson Michigan, Jarret Stidham Auburn, and Drew Lock Mizzou.

    OT- Trey Adams Washington, Jonah Williams Alabama, and David Edwards Wisconsin.
    OG- Michael Dieter Wisconsin.

    DE- Nick Bosa Ohio St, and Zach Allen Boston College.

    Also worth monitoring is WR David Sills WV who could sneak into the 1st. Does anybody know when the last time a white wr was drafted in the 1st round??

    Jacksonville took Matt Jones in 2005 in the first round and Indy drafted Anthony Gonzalez in '07, who despite what some may think concerning his surname is White. I don't think there's been any since then.

    Lots of good white QB's available. As of right now no quotabacks on the horizon. Although it seems that every year, by hook or by crook, the powers that be try to shoehorn a quotaback into the first round.

    Still as of now, most mock drafts don't feature any quotabacks. However, that could always be subject to change. Tyree Jackson is my pick for the quotaback the powers that be try to convince everyone is a first round pick. Watch him get talked up quite a bit this year. He plays for a small school (Buffalo) so he's kind of been under the radar, but watch the football media anoint him as the next black QB wunderkind.

    Will scouts tell Nick Fitzgerald to attend the draft as WR like Lamar Jackson ? :coleman:
    Fitzgerald is tall and quick but not polish when throws (54%--55% accuracy in two seasons), just like Matt Jones in his Arkansas years.

    In fact this wont be the topic in few weeks, has the tools to improve on that number, especially people normally learn from experiencing that kind of injuries,
    and a new coach... he changes his throwing motion, best for him.

    Tannehill has been outperforming Newton in this game, yet according to DWF, Tannehill sucks and needs to be replaced.

    Hey everyone - time for more draft analyst double speak - Caste Cuck Analyst Tony Pauline categorizes a white LB from the MAC as small-ish and a special teams demon! The linebacker is EMU's Kyle Rachwal is 6'3" 240 lbs. Weenie world of course regurgitates exactly what Pauline says becuase they offer no actual content of their own - just copy and paste snippets from other supposed "experts".


    Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Eastern Michigan junior LB Kyle Rachwal a potential draft "sleeper" based on his performance against Purdue on Saturday.
    Rachwal was a tackling machine in the upset win, recording 11 tackles with one of them going for loss. Pauline notes that scouts haven't graded Rachwal yet, but this performance against a Big Ten opponent will certainly get the 6-foot-3, 240-pound linebacker on radars. As Pauline summarizes: "Rachwal is a small-ish, intense pursuit linebacker who’ll offer value on special teams."

    Typical. Flat out lies.

    "He's a tackling machine, prototypical size, and clearly has a nose for the ball. So you know what, let's go ahead and move him to Fullback. He can always make tackles on Special Teams."

    Friggin caste logic man .

    On the bright side looking forward to watching Rachwal play!

    I am begining my NFL draft prospect watch list a little late this year.

    As is always the case with me I find the QB position the most enjoyable and most cringeworthy to evaluate. Every year we see non-white QBs get hyped up during the college football season and over the past 5 or so years many have stuck around as bottom feeder practice squad/3rd stringer type camp arms. I always wonder how many of these QBs take away oppourtunities from better white players. The college game has really developed into it's own type of football - alot more half field reads, zone option looks and QB relying on their legs (only non-white QBs seem to be celebrated for this).


    My initial rankings only include Seniors so that is why you will see some big names omitted from the first list. Looking over this list now it will get deeper once some underclassmen declare.



    QB Will Grier West Virginia 6'2 223

    Grier is my number 1 QB going into the season. He poessesses the self-confidence, arm talent, accuracy, vertical passing ability and athleticism to be a top 10 pick. He started his career as a freshman at Florida until a mysterious ban for a positive PED test caused him to be suspended (I believe he went 4-1 as a RS Freshman at UF). Due to a lack of support from the now fired Jim McElwain he decided to transfer, sit out a year and re-emerged in 2017 one of the best QBs in the country. He is off to a hot start this year as well and looks to be on track to cement his status as a first round pick.



    QB Drew Lock Missouri 6'4 225

    Lock has improved every year which is always a good sign - his completion precentage jumped from 49% to 55% to 58%. Two games into his senior campaign he is at 74% with an 8-0 TD/INT ratio. He will need to keep up his strong start to keep his stock high. I think he is in the Jared Goff mold in terms of the type of prospect he is. Rooting for him to have a strong senior season.


    QB Ryan Finley NC State

    Finley is more of a pocket passer than anything. He relies on an accurate short to mid passing game. His arm is not a cannon but is more than serviceable. He is in his third year as a starter with plenty of experience with 18 wins on his resume. For those who care he should cross off all of the Parcells rules for drafting a QB after his senior season. I feel that Chad Pennington is a good comparison for Finley.


    QB Clayton Thorson Northwestern 6'4 225

    Thorson tore his ACL in Northwestern's bowl game in December. He currently seems to be on a bit of a "pitch count" splitting time with TJ Green. That would indicate the he is not 100%. He played well against Purdue. He is a big, athletic QB with good arm strength but sometimes makes questionable decisions. Hopefully he continues to get healthier and is able to be the full time starter by October and finish the season strong. He more talented then both Mike Kafka and Trevor Semien - two NW QBs who have made it to the NFL in recent years.


    QB Nick Fitzgerald Miss St. 6'5 230

    Nick Fitzgerald is essentially the next Tim Tebow. His stock has probably taken a bit of hit with his one game suspension to start off the season. Hopefully he can improve his accuracy and throw the ball more this year. At this point I am very pessimistic about any white dual threat QB being drafted highly. If he can develop as a passer and be seen in more of a Carson Wentz mold that will only help his draft projections. At his point Fitzgerald's stock and go either way depending on how the season plays out. I hope to see him viewed as a QB rather than be forced to predictably switch positions to TE.




    "Undersized Prospects"

    QB Trace McSorely PSU 6'0 203
    QB Jake Browning Washington 6'2 210
    QB Brett Rypien 6'2 202

    This class boasts some intriguing QB prospects that are considered a little undersized. QBs Jake Browning, Brett Rypien and Trace McSorely have all been very productive during their careers. Although none of them have the arm strength of Baker Mayfield I do feel they are draftable mid-round talents with exceptional production and leading their respective teams to several victories over the course of their careers.


    Small School Prospects

    The two big names that stick out to me are Arkansas St QB Justice Hansen (6'4 224) and North Dakota St QB Easton Stick (6'2 221). Hansen is an Oklahoma transfer who has gone on to have a very productive career at Arkansas St. Easton Stick was the heir apparent to Carson Wentz at NDSU and I think that will help generate some increased interest in him during the draft season.


    Others to keep an eye on:

    QB Drew Anderson Murray St
    QB Eric Dungey Syracuse
    QB Devlin Hodges Samford
    QB Kyle Kempt Iowa St
    QB Kyle Shurmur Vanderbilt
    QB Tanner Magnum

    Just reading some of the weenie world CFB analysis - it looks like the two hyped up quotabacks for 2019 are the OSU QB and Buffalo QB. The OSU QB has played in 3 games and they are labeling him a 1st round pick. The Buffalo QB does not have a full season under his belt. They are desperate.

    Tony Pauline goes back to back weeks in describing white LBs as "sleeper" prospects. Sent him a tweet to ask as to why the cliches are being used . Let's see if I get banned by twitter.


    Sleeper Prospect- Connor Strachan/LB/Boston College: We graded Strachan as a free agent entering the season despite the fact he was limited to just two games a year ago due to injury. During his junior season of 2016, Strachan was an active linebacker who constantly played smart, productive football. The early returns are positive as Strachan led all defenders with 15 tackles in the contest against ACC foe Wake Forest on Thursday night. He won’t impress scouts during pre-draft workouts rather Strachan will be a productive situational linebacker with the ability to play special teams at the next level.
