    He still went in the second round to Denver. Elway is parlaying it well. OL Risner dominated upsider DE Montez Sweat (who was taken in the first round) when they played. Risner never allowed a sack in his career...6'5" 312lbs.

    Packers probably would have had a second SB with Rodgers if they didn't make him sit 3 weeks before the divisional round only for him and the whole offense to come out rusty and out of sync. Yet they go completely away from this formula that had them so competitive.

    I looked up some SPARQ scores. Some highly athletic white men in this draft.

    Linebackers; Cole Holcomb 97.8(!), Tranquill 88.8, Van Ginkel 86.6, Ben B-K 84.6, Porter Gustin 78.0.

    Edge players; Crosby 88.7, Cominsky 81.9 (at 290 lbs), Anthony Nelson 78.6 (draft him and you get Jeannie too), Bosa 74.8 (MAGA), Chase Winovich 67.8 (great football name).

    Safety; Andrew Wingard 54.8 (slightly above average athleticism, not bad for a strong safety).

    Not only are most of the selectees black, most of the former players doing the announcing are of the Magical Race as well. It was nice to see Eric Wood make the announcement for the Bills, though.

    S Taylor Rapp (who was a Washington Huskie, and currently ranked the best available Safety) passed over by hometown Seattle, who instead, picks an upsider who played for Utah.

    Does anyone believe the constantly repeated line that 200,000 people are watching the Draft live in Nashville? I'd say 40,000 to 50,000 max, enough maybe to fill a smaller college football stadium.

    Even more ridiculous claims are given for celebrations after a city's team wins a championship. I think it was 3 million supposedly in Cleveland for the Cavaliers win in '16, or about eight times the population of Cleveland. When the Penguins won in '17, a similar preposterous claim was repeated over and over for the number of people. Fake news is the norm.

    Here's an excerpt of linebacker Cole Holcomb's write-up on Draft Analyst.

    "Holcomb is a hard-working player who relies on instincts and intensity to make plays. He lacks great measurables, but his approach to the game and ability to diagnose could help him find a roster spot as a backup."

    Here's his SPARQ score, 97.8.

    Lacks great measurables, SPARQ score is 97.8.

    Too bad the boomer boycott had no teeth, I'd love for the national felon league to go bankrupt.

    About a half hour ago, one of the Caste clown cucks on CBS Sports, said people were currently "going crazy" in Nashville about the draft.

    Slot WR, Deebo Samuel, picked by the 49ers. Probably the end of Trent Taylor’s tenure there.

    Vikings are trying to replace Kyle Rudolph with a TE (Irv Smith) that can’t block whatsoever.

    The Bengals draft another white player in TE Drew Sample. Nice!

    Bengals take Drew Sample, TE Washington. HC Zac Taylor looks promising for Cincy.

    Lock is the best pick of the draft so far. The Bills have disappointed picking a sumo over Risner who Elway wisely picked up.

    Bengals just picked up Drew Sample - surprising to see him over Sternberger and Knox but I'll take it.

    Looks like Fat Matt and Quinn are doing things the Patriots way in Detroit drafting a poly LB out of Hawaii.

    Good to see Texans take Scharping.

    Did Bill O’Bolshevik really select a white OT? This might be the first one he’s ever had on his foul Texans squad...

    Yea I hear you man. Just frustrated to see him go to that team. The Texans have become a huge joke.

    Chiefs pick an overrated SEC WR. Glad it wasn't Isabella.

    After what's happened to Tyreek Hill the Chiefs should have taken Isabella, but of course they didn't. Would probably be a lousy "team culture" for Andy to land on anyway.

    Chiefs draft a player who caught 35 passes last year. He must have been drafted for special teams as a returner.

    Kirk Herbstreit cucking hard for the Chiefs’ WR pick, Hardman, referencing his speed dozens of times. Isabella ran a slightly faster 40 time...do you think he’ll speak just as highly of him? Rhetorical question.

    With pass rushers supposedly at a premium you'd think someone would have drafted Crosby or Winovich by now.

    If they were black one or both of them would be gone already.
