    Why aren’t North Dakota State guys drafted at least 1/2 as much as lower tier SEC and ACC schools?

    That should have kicked in a lonnnnnggggg long time ago. But as long as it's done via gradualism it doesn't kick in.

    If Ashtyn Davis is 7/8th White, I would count him as White, but I'm from 40% White California and we have to have an expanded definition of White out here, otherwise we might not have many friends. I know some guys from the South who strictly abide by the 1 drop rule. Maybe we can vote on it.

    Problem with a guy like that is, if he was that much White and the rest was Asian or hispanic we would probably embrace him. But the little bit of black blood, if indeed he has some and it looks like he does, makes him a beneficiary of the Caste System. I'm quite lenient myself, it's the system itself that adheres to an extremist view of black racial supremacy even if someone is only slightly black. But then again, Davis traveled a typical White road to get where he's at, walk-on in track at Cal, football walk-on, so he does seem to be someone to root for all things considered.

    This is exactly the problem, if some hexadecaroon preforms well it will likely be attributed to his black ancestry! They will bring up his ethnic background if its not readily apparent.

    Tanner Muse going in the third round is the only semi-good thing about this despicable draft.

    Unfortunately true. We literally have zero representation.

    So pretty much only missed Deguara, Muse, and Trautman..

    Muse getting selected early to LV is awesome.

    Even the OG and C are now black ?? Time to stop watching and supporting the NFL.

    Or maybe just dump the Patriots and go to Raiders. Shocking to see someone as slow footed as Muse drafted in the third.

    He was viewed as a potential switch to cornerback and even Apke was never viewed as a potential switch to cornerback with roughly similar speed.

    After seeing his pops its obvious he has African ancestry, but in other parts of the Americas he still would be viewed as White ie Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and the Anglo Caribbean.

    Tanner Muse getting picked today was a pleasant surprise. Of course the media talking heads had to do their best to ruin the moment by insulting him twice, not only calling him a linebacker, but also saying he was headed for special teams. Special teamers don't get picked in the third round.

    This ultra-dark draft currently sits at 10 white players out of 106 picks, or 9.43%. If the last four rounds don't whiten up considerably it will end up worse than the 2015 draft at 15% white.

    I'm so wound up I can't sleep. Feel run down. I swear this draft has made me physically ill. Yes we need a big rally today ( see post above) to reach the miserable 15% white level of 2005.

    This may strike some as silly. But I have written about CM and his preference for playing on grass. Maybe it has something to do with the "artificial" ways ( see steroids) so many black players resort to but I have sensed over the years that black players prefer non natural playing surfaces whereas white players prefer grass. Artificial surfaces increase speed unnaturally. To me grass is king and it is natural and is the proper playing surface. And I was pleased to discover that the new Las Vegas field will have grass. Grass equals God's green earth. Leave that artificial crap to the heathens. I remember all those horrible artificial surfaces in baseball during the 1970s where blacks would rack up big stolen base totals. So in the scheme of things perhaps a small matter but I am pleased Tanner Muse will be playing his home games on grass. I do know it is the safest surface to play on.

    I would add DE Derrek Tuszka to that list as well as QB Shea Patterson. They are on the borderlines but I like both of them a lot.

    Two big surprises that haven't gotten chosen yet. Live wire TE Harrison Bryant for starters. How stupid are teams? Great quickness and is a natural pass catcher. The other one is QB Jacob Eason. Since when did big armed QBs go out of fashion?

    As for the draft so far I knew there would be a lot of black filler but cripes we are just three rounds in and so many black bums have been chosen already. It would seem to me they are running out of these types and now is the time for the honky patrol to make some noise. There are some really good white players left on the list above.

    And this SEC lovefest is enough to make me barf. I think 39 out of the 40 chosen so far have been black.

    @Shadowlight dont hold your breath on Patterson getting drafted. Patterson, Eason and Fromm have SEC experience with Fromm being a great qb at uga yet he is still on the board. Kurt Warner kept pushing the false narrative that the qb situation in the NFL is in good shape which it isn’t. Teams like the Colts, Saints, Panthers, Bucs all need a solid qb prescence. What we are seeing in this draft is the purposeful devaluing of white qbs.

    I think the mere numbers of white players chosen only gives us an overview snapshot. Within those numbers we should look at certain skill position players with a heavy emphasis on wide receivers, running backs and defensive backs. If they insist on labelling Tanner Muse a linebacker we will probably see a draft ( which we will know by this evening) without any white players who play the above skill positions chosen. That is cast iron caste slotting at it's best. Which is why this draft will probably go down as perhaps the worst ever here at CF.

    Then I don't know if this was correct but on ESPN they flashed a notice that 54% of the passes caught in the NFL in 2019 were by players who were not drafted. Again I can't verify that but they flashed it at least two times. If true it begs the question as to why is there such a big black WR slobber fest every year and it is particularly noticeable this year where it feels like every other pick is a black "upside" wide receiver.

    Point being most of these black wide receivers will turn out to be wasted draft picks. Many never master the nuances or route trees needed to succeed in the NFL. Many have feasted on pathetic mainly black defensive backs. And many have hands of stone. But they keep plugging away and grabbing one after another after another. Is it too much to ask to at least occasionally throw in a white wide out every once in a while? Apparently yes.

    Tanner Muse ran a 4.41 second 40yd at the combine. Why not make him a receiver or running back? He seems way too useful for special teams. Guys with 4.41s shouldn't be spending much time on the bench.

    Christian McCaffery ran a 4.48.
    Julian Edelman ran a 4.52.
    Wes Welker ran a 4.65.

    Most likely, Muse will be starting on defense.

    I also noticed watching last night, not that I didn't know before. But Robert Hunt was the Dolphins 2nd round selection. He played his High School ball at a tiny school in Texas who had 18 players on the team. he signed a scholarship with Louisiana. Adam Trautman plays his High School ball at a tiny school in Michigan who had 18 players. But he had to play college football at FCS (Non-scholarship) Dayton. Colleges will offer blacks from small towns who didn't play good competition but whites who come from small towns practically have zero chance.

    Bechton probably was popped for a cutting agent to drop fat and run a better 40 yard dash. If he ran a more lumbering 40 yard dash he would probably be viewed more as an Orlando Brown type ie a lumbering obese guy.

    My main worry about him is what will his weight be when he hits 28 and could he get type 2 diabetes in the middle of his second contract and have to shed a ton of weight to get potential medical issues under control.

    As you stated his pops who may only be 50ish looks like a poster child for being on death's door from hypertension, diabetes and other obesity related maladies.

    Went for a walk and then in my car cranked up a great Van Morrison song "Starting A New Day" off of his "Tupelo Honey" album. I am psyched up now for the third day of the draft. Better known as "White Bread Crumbs Day." By the way Morrison's "Moondance" album is his masterpiece but his two follow ups "His Band And Street Choir" and TP are pretty damn good too.

    But we deserve some good news today considering what we have had to slog though the past two nights. Sure Tanner getting drafted a couple of rounds earlier than anticipated and landing in a nice spot is a great story but we knew he was going to get drafted by someone.

    I have a list of white players who I am banking on getting drafted today. That includes several that are on that dreaded fringe category.

    Even if those players get drafted I still want to see at least two genuine surprising mood boosting picks. And I am not referring to white offensive linemen either. I don't need to spell out what is needed here. Will we see a beautiful moment or two today? Slim hopes springs eternal but this draft so far has been too obviously caste and if it continues in that vein it is possible a few articles could spring up contemplating the lack of white players drafted. Not certain of course but I am sure many fans are noticing the more than usual caste gap this draft.

    Lets see what happens. I am planning to pop more than a few today so my posts might get stranger than usual. Hell if the world is ending I want to have some fun on the way down. Ha.

    Enjoying the posts here.

    Another bad character drug suspended clown from LSU got drafted making it now 11 LSU guys drafted. This new lax NFL rule regarding drugs is a veritable feast for cheating black players. This OT's last name is Charles. From here on I refuse to list the impossible black oriented names so many black dudes have now. I am so effing sick of these GD impossible to spell or pronounce new wave hipster crap black names. That includes those hyphenated names. I have had enough.

    The Raiders just drafted another Clemson player. They are turning into Clemson West with 5 now on the roster.

    The Raiders seem to be building a pipeline from Clemson under Mayock. Last year Renfrow and Ferrel and this year Muse and now Simpson. Considering how Clemson is becoming more White friendly, this could be a good development. Go Raiders!
