    I know it's very early but I thought I would start this thread so we could put information on future prospects.

    Quarterback- this draft will be exciting with two very athletic prospects in Jake Locker and Christian Ponder. Other quarterbacks of note are Ricky Stanzi and Pat Devlin.

    Wide receivers- some guys of note are Ryan Whalen, Greg Salas, Dane Sanzenbacher, and Matt Szczur, and Graham Zug. All should be drafted. Billy Flutie is a receiver from Boston College who has a chance to catch on as a free agent.

    Runningback- It's the same old crap. The only white prospect who may get drafted is Chase Reynolds from Montana.

    Tightend-Luke Stocker, Konrad Reuland, and Mike Mcneil are the top white prospects.

    Fullback- Owen Marecic from Stanford. Shaun Chapas from Georgia should be drafted as well.

    Offensive Tackle- This draft will be much better than this past one in regards to tackles. Gabe Carimi is probably the top tackle. Also ultra-athletic Nate Solder from Colorado runs a 4.89 40. Anthony Costanzo, Clint Boling, and Lee Ziemba are the other top white tackles.

    Centers-Kristopher O'Dowd from USC is the top center. <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1272625" target="_blank">Stefen
    Wisniewski</a> and Colin Baxter are in the top 5.

    Guards- John Moffitt from Wisconsin may be the top guard in the draft. Stephen Schilling from Michigan is also a very good prosect who runs a 5.06 40.

    Inside linebackers- Casey Matthews and Alex Wujciak are the top two white inside linebackers. They should both be drafted fairly early.

    Safeties- Free safety actually isn't too bad. Brian Lainhart, Brett Greenwood, Chris Prosinki, and Max Hewitt should all get drafted. Chris Conte from California has an outside chance and Alex Wacha does as well. Wacha is a talented kid who can play corner as well. At strong safety Dom DeCicco will be drafted and Andrew Rich, Max Sutter, and Joel Schwenzfeier should as well.

    Outside linebackers- Mark Herzlich is one of the best outside linebackers in the draft. He runs a 4.68 so he has good speed for the position. Hopefully his cancer issues are now behind him and he can continue his great career. Colin Mccarthy is a very athletic linebacker from Miami. Ross Homan out of Ohio State is also very good and his stock is rising. Scott Lutrus from Conneticut is another athletic outside linebacker who runs a 4.67. He may catch on as a free agent.

    Cornerback- Yeah right! Whites aren't allowed to play this position,.

    Defensive tackles- If Jared Crick declares after this upcoming season he will most likely be the first defensive tackle taken. Colby Whitlock from Texas Tech should also be drafted early.

    Defensive ends- It should be a little better than last draft for white defensive ends. How could it be any worse? Ryan Kerrigan out of Perdue is the top white end and should be a second round pick. <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1114079" target="_blank">Ryan
    Winterswyk</a> from Boise State is a 263 lb end who runs a 4.68. Jake Laptad from Kansas should also be drafted in the later rounds. Rice has an athletic end in Scott Solomon.

    I'll edit this list and update the prospects.

    Even though they play in the vaunted SEC, I expect Clint Boling and Lee Ziemba to "fall" in the Draft.

    Ziemba seems to have lost his hunger, however. He was totally dominant at right tackle as a true frosh, but he has been lack-luster at left tackle in my estimation. I see him as a RT in the NFL, and NFL teams might see that as well, so that might lead to him getting selected in rounds 2-4. Of course, his Senior season could either help or hurt his stock.

    Great write up WA33! WA33, I know you already mentioned him in the other thread. Tyler Sash will probably be the 1st white Safety taken.

    Another point, is that Nebraska's Jared Crick is a phenomenal DT. He may end up being just as good as Suh in the NFL...only time will tell!

    Hopefully Hillis and Gerhart, with maybe a little dose of Hester, will expose the caste system some more for some of the 2012 FBS RBs like McGuffie and Martinek. White RBs in the lower levels ALWAYS seem to get screwed (and there aren't many FBS white RB prospects for 2011). The small school competition argument is just another excuse the NFL can use to keep them inconspicuous and riding the pine, with no DWF smart enough to question anything when the same doesn't happen for blacks like Brian Westbrook or Tim Hightower.Edited by: ToughJ.Riggins

    Thanks Tough. It depends if Sash comes out for the 2011 draft or 2012.

    Mike McNeill has switched to WR for the 'Huskers this year. He should be a Dallas Clark type WR/TE hybrid in the NFL if he performs good at WR this year.

    Thanks for the write-up WA33!Edited by: Jack Lambert

    Good point WA33, my oversight. Yeah, it's probably best to keep this list just to the seniors until it gets to the time when Juniors and red-shirt sophomores declare (b/c we don't know who will yet).

    I'll keep updating the list and adding new players from time to time. It's hard to get info on some of these lesser known prospects.

    Matt Berning -- http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=238935

    Nick Bellore -- http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=232942


    2 great reasons to watch Central Michigan this year.


    Karl Klug -- http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=188292

    I already know what "they" are going to say, "he's too small (not a sumo) -- and there's no place for him on the D-line." That's baloney, though. If anything, you could put him next to a sumo on an NFL line. That would be a wise strategy!


    Ricky Elmore -- http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=190042

    Let's hope for an excellent Senior season.

    Speaking of Mitch King, he's now with the Colts after being undrafted and then waived by the Titans last year after they signed him as a free agent. I have no doubt he could outperform at least 95 percent of the NFL's sumo DTs but he'll likely never get the opportunity because he's "too small" or "doesn't have the right body type."King was pretty much unstoppable when he played for Iowa.

    He has similar size and "body type" to Ndamukon Suh, along with similar college production. So you think that folks will notice the similarities and give King a shot? Naaaaaaa...

    How about this kid Dave Kruger. He will probably come out for the 2012 draft. He's the brother of Paul Kruger. This kid will be a good defensive tackle.

    With Mitch King, Karl Klug, and another 2011 prospect -- Bruce Miller (http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=184728) -- we can really notice the White strength advantage, and that White athletes are the greatest combination of quickness and strength, and don't forget the world-class endurance.

    I've seen "normal-sized" Bruce Miller utterly destroy 330 pound sumo guards. A great sight, indeed.

    Maybe he can catch on with the Colts. I know they play a lot of smaller d-linemen. I saw Klug play last year and his body type\size reminded me of Mitch King. The production mught not be there yet, but he has potential. King was a beast I remember seeing a highlight of him running 20 yards down the field to make a tackle. Thats what I call hustle and athleticism working as one! [​IMG]

    Wow. I'm surprised you don't know this Gatorpride. McGuffie transferred to Rice. Rules forced him to sit last season. Look for him this fall.

    I don't think it will. He needs the extra weight because he's going to be up against bigger guys than in high school.

    Hey gatorprideFL, welcome to Caste Football! Here is the link to the Sam McGuffie thread. I do my best to keep up with what he's doing, as I think he's going to tear it up for the Owls.

    i know have yall watched his youtube videos? I have never seen anyone run like that of any skin color he is truly special, but the fact that i didnt know that says a little something about the caste system. im glued to sports networks and did my best to follow him but still didn't know.<div>I mean if this guy doesn't make it to the pros there is truly something wrong, i just cant wait for the steroid accusations from all the haters when he does bust out.</div><div>

    Some of the comments by the DWF's on McGuffie are despicable. Since they can't knock his speed or skills they say he's too small.

    Exactly. They always have to make up flaws in white players.
