    Pre-Caste System a big, strong, fast and elusive running back like Ryan Nall with proven productivity would have been drafted early, quite possibly in the first round. But it is always very difficult for White running backs to get an opportunity in the NFL. For every Christian McCaffrey, who had a famous NFL father and was the rare White RB recruited by a big-time program where his brilliance was undeniable, there are dozens and dozens of Ryan Nalls.

    Hopefully Ryan makes the Bears and eventually is given a fair opportunity to showcase his skills. This article is optimistic:

    Ex-OSU Beaver Ryan Nall predicted to earn roster spot with Chicago Bears: Report

    By Geoffrey C. Arnold

    The Oregonian/OregonLive

    Ryan Nall and Randin Crecelius are hoping to earn a roster spot with a NFL team this summer. Both players are undrafted free agents, but they have an opportunity of reaching their goal, according to separate reports on each player.

    Nall, the former Oregon State running back, signed with the Chicago Bears. According to a post on isportsweb.com, new Bears head coachMatt Nagy may have doubts about starting back Jordan Howard, particularly in his ability as a receiver. Nagy also said he plans to use "multiple backs" in 2018. Nall is a bigger and more powerful back than Howard or Tarik Cohen and the post noted Nall's ability to catch passes out of the backfield, giving him the kind of versatility that Howard lacks.

    "At 6'2, 232 pounds, Nall is able to play both running back and full back, and has done so throughout his tenure in Oregon. Nall's senior season alone produced 1,684 yards with 22 touchdowns. While he is a bigger back, Nall has deceptive speed and elusiveness, posting a 4.58 forty at the combine. Nall also excels catching the ball out of the backfield as he totaled 56 receptions for 563 yards and four scores in his collegiate career. His raw power and vision are evident on film, and he should be an intriguing addition to an already captivating Bears' offense."

    Ryan Nall had a Relative Athletic Score (RAS) of 8.21. This is very good as the scale goes from 0-10. He had a higher RAS than Derrius Guice, Rashaad Penny, Kerryon Johnson and Ronald Jones. That means, according to this metric, Nall is more athletic than Guice, Penny, Johnson and Jones.

    Penny was drafted in the 1st round. Guice, Johnson and Jones were drafted in the 2nd. Nall went undrafted, even though he was productive in college in both the run and pass game.

    Penny, Guice, Johnson and Jones are black. Nall is white. The reason why Nall went undrafted is because of anti-white discrimination and racism.

    If Nall is given a chance there is a high probability he will be successful in the NFL. Because of anti-white racism that's a big if.

    It would be nice to see some running back RAS scores from later rounds and other UFAs..
    From a few years ago, I’d love to see Zach Line vs Matt Asiata.....Line was so damn productive in college but had to move to fullback......Asiata, at least had a chance.....Similar size, different paths......
