    I'm glad Kittle is succeeding. Especially over those GM's who drafted inferior black TE's.

    If he doesn't solidify white TEs being a thing, as they are atm, I don't know what will.

    Yeah, I got it confused with a different year.

    But I got the fifth round part right. How does a talent like this last until the fifth round? Would it have happened to a black player?

    Most impressive part of Kittle's season was putting up those kind of numbers with 49ers 2nd and 3rd string QBs. Hell of a player!

    Another white player that should be mentioned in the future combine thread. Don will be putting that thread together in a week or so. I was going to start it, but I want it done correctly. So much information about the athleticism of our white players! I'm looking forward to it! I hope we can find all the past and present information on white players that were screwed despite the numbers! As well as the future combine numbers white players will be putting up.
    Fortunately, Kittle wasn't one of the guys. Although he shouldn't have been drafted in the fifth round. More like the first!

    To me YAC, signifies an athletic, quick, agile, shifty football player. Attributes that the enemy media only lavishes on players of the high melanin variety. More evidence against the Caste System.

    Freethinker I watched a GK hilight reel and the idiot announcers actually mentioned how fast Kittle was, saying he combined at 4.52 but his game speed is more like a 4.48, pretty high end compliment. His speed after catch is phenomenal, 1 stride and he is shakin and bakin at warp 9 or he is running right through and over the negro defenders. I would not want to be a db and have to take him on.

    Yes, his record-setting 2018 campaign occurred despite the fact that Kittle caught passes from three different QB’s (Jimmy G, Beathard, and Mullins). Unreal!

    Kittle seems like a winner off the field as well. A few months ago, he got engaged to his girlfriend, Claire, who played basketball at Iowa. Nice...

    He still looks athletic and quite lean for that many reps with this weight. Good job!

    George Kittle is now officially my favorite NFL player, and yes that includes Christian McCaffrey. That 40 yard run against NO last week when he went beast mode cemented him as the best TE in the league. He can easily fill the void created by Gronk. I had no idea he has a fun, easy-going personality to match his talent on the field:

    The usual response from DWF's when I ask a question like that on r/nfl is something like, "well he wasn't that dominant in college and his numbers didn't stand out" or some drivel that was pre-fed to them by (((ESPN)))

    Kittle needs 220 yards in the final two games to become the first tight end in NFL history to total 3,000 yards in his first three seasons.
