    This is depressing to hear but I’m not surprised that the people who would travel to the NFL Draft are typically stereotypical DWFs.

    As far as Hispanics everywhere, is that because they are there for the draft? I spent a weekend in Nashville a few years back and it’s was mostly White with blacks here and there.

    I think, because of all the athletic white defensive players taken, this draft can be seen as a success from a caste busting perspective. Of course things could be even better but I think this is a trend in the right direction.

    LB Cashman to the Jets. Good player with some injury issues.

    IIRC Cashman didn't even start at the beginning of his senior season with the Gophers but came on strong as the season developed. Also, like Connelly and Renfrow, a former walk on.

    TE Kaden Smith and OL David Edwards are steals at this point.

    The "200,000" lie looks to have shrunk to several thousand today

    I agree, only place worse would have been Baltimore.

    Just looking at Leonardfan's projections and rankings on page 24 of this thread, for where white players would be going. Pretty spot on, nice job Leondardfan.

    Colts take someone named EJ Speed. A good football name. Chase Winovich is a good one too.

    QB Easton Stick to the Chargers. Solid backup QB.

    QB Clayton Thorson to the Eagles. An even better pick than Stick. Starter potential.

    Rams take David Edwards. They could be the whitest team in the league this year.

    Unofficially I count 15 overachievers taken in the 5th round out of 35 picks, or 43%! So we're at 50 Whites so far, looks like the elusive 60 number is going to be exceeded this year.

    Round 5:
    Gentry
    Burr-Kirven
    Connelly
    Gay
    Van Ginkel
    Pierschbacher
    Renfro
    Cashman
    Smith
    Bailey
    Stick
    Thorson
    Edwards
    Seifert
    Holcomb

    what I like is the diversity of positions that white players are coming from. Now if we can just get Sills drafted.

    Yes indeed Sutton Smith to STEELERS

    Nice to see Cole Holcombe to REDSKINS!

    TE Kaden Smith...49ers Hit Jackpot!

    Mind boggling with David Sills ...also waiting for Chase Hansen

    Still No DB's (except for Rapp).....need to see at least Andrew Wingard & Chris Johnson
