    This is ridiculous, a very low number of Whites, I remember there being a few more last year

    Whites on North Roster

    68Beadles, ZaneOL6-4 / 307Utah
    5Canfield, SeanQB6-3 / 221Oregon State
    54Edds, A.J.LB6-4 / 245Iowa
    89Graham, Garrett TE6-3 / 234Wisconsin
    13LeFevour, DanQB6-3 / 229Central Michigan
    28McCarthy, KyleDB5-11 / 203Notre Dame
    42Mesko, ZoltanP6-4 / 233Michigan
    55Olsen, EricOL6-4 / 310Notre Dame
    15Pike, TonyQB6-6 / 212Cincinnati
    14Swenson, BrettPK5-7 / 173Michigan State
    65Tennant, MattOL6-4 / 290Boston College
    75Welch, ThomasOL6-7 / 310Vanderbilt
    93Windt, MikeDS6-1 / 249Cincinnati
    74Young, SamOL6-8 / 305Notre Dame

    Whites on South roster

    53Byers, JeffOL6-3 / 299Southern Cal
    11Cooper, RileyWR6-3 / 214Florida
    59Cox, MorganDS6-3 / 248Tennessee
    42Dodge, MattP6-1 / 223East Carolina
    78Johnson, MikeOL6-5 / 306Alabama
    58Larsen, TedOL6-2 / 302N.C. State
    84Peek, ColinTE6-5 / 250Alabama
    66Petrus, MitchOL6-3 / 304Arkansas
    10Robinson, ZacQB6-2 / 210Oklahoma State
    15Tebow, TimQB6-2 / 236Florida
    99Tiffin, LeighPK6-1 / 198Alabama
    55Walton, J.D.OL6-2 / 300Baylor

    1 White WR, 1 White DB, 1 White LB, 2 White Tight ends. Even a low number of White lineman, mostly black or polynesian. There are Whiter teams in the NFL than these "all star" teams

    The good thing about it, is that I think it is only airing on NFL network, which not many people have.

    nice catch by Graham for a 22 yard td negated by hold from a polynesian lineman Iupati. The announcer said hes saw this lineman do this all throughout his career, and wont get away with it at the next level. So this is supposed to be a top lineman? a guy that can't even play without holding? Iupati, this is someone that everyone is high on. He just held again and got away with it.Edited by: dwid

    You can also ADD #23 WR-Taylor Price -Ohio U...nice size at 6'-1 212...but he did not look that big. Made a nice catch falling backwards and got drilled and hung on to the ball..looks like a natural

    you sure he is White? I had a hard time telling on guys like Kurt Coleman and Jimmy Graham. They look White in some pictures and others they don't so I left them out of the listEdited by: dwid

    My bad...your right...he's mixed...

    Another one to add is #33 Fullback- Corey Jackson 6'-1 245 Maryland....not many fullbacks get drafted these days...but he could land in the later rounds...

    good find, they just have guys listed as rb, so i figured a rb from maryland was most likely to be black so i didnt look it up

    So many affletes on the south roster, yet they scored thanks to two big plays by White guys. A 26 yard grab by Cooper and then a nice td catch by Peek who was hit hard but still held on

    It sucks that not many fullbacks are being drafted, thats the problem White runningbacks are having. Teams rarely draft a Fullback, yet there are still a good amount of teams that still have packages that feature fullbacks. So instead of drafting real fullbacks they draft White runningbacks and make them play fb. 2008 draft 2 top rated fullbacks were Hester and Hillis, both who were capable of playing halfback, Hester ran for 1,000 yards his senior season as a halfback and although Hillis was technically a fb in college he carried the ball a little bit (350 yards rushing his senior season) and was more than a lead blocker. His combine proved that he could play halfback, running a 4.59. Even Owen Schmitt has the potential to be a halfback I think he timed somewhere bw 4.6 and 4.7 (Kahil Bell has gotten carries running a 4.7, McClain a 4.88) had around 300 yards rushing 5.8 ypc his last year.Edited by: dwid

    LeFevour had a great game making great throws and showing athleticism. Afflete qb Brown looked horrible and his last throw was picked off by A.J. Edds to pretty much end the game. The slighlty Whiter north team crushed the south team that was full of SEC players (suupposed to be the best conference in college football) SEC backs couldn't run, the sumo tackles couldn't block. The announcer almost blew a load when McCluster took a screen pass for 11 yards talking about his explosiveness. That was basically all he did for the entire game.Edited by: dwid

    WTF is up with Draftdaddy??? Look at this garbage link they just posted!

    Why isn't U.A.B. star Joe Webb getting a chance to play quarterback at the Senior Bowl, and Florida's Tim Tebow is?

    Do we really have to go into the details why Webb is not?

    Something's definitely changed with DD, and not for the better.

    I heard something from dwid that they wanted Gerhart to play FB. The anti white zealots have come out in full force this year- with so many good white players at WR and a star white RB too.

    Gerhart put up some of the most AMAZING performances I've EVER seen in college football running all over good defenses like Oregon and USC. He was the best RB statistically in college football, yet somehow will magically lose all these abilities and be made a battering ram for inferior players because he's white...Makes me sick!

    Tebow looked ok. The offensive line didn't do him any favors, when he went back into the game they were down two scores so he the front 4 of the north were able to just go after Tebow without having to worry about the run. Overrated Selvish Capers who has only the skin color required to play LT allowed a north DE to pressure Tebow.

    For Tebow he had an up and down week but for the most part he did well.

    Ive noticed Draftdaddy and NFLDraftcountdown work together so Im pretty sure one of the DD guys is close with Scott Wright, the guy that has Gerhart ranked as a FB.

    they always stuck up for Toby, throughout the whole season. and there's a good article pro Riley Cooper. i am not sure if that's a change in their view or what is it that's happening.

    Draftdaddy was one of the few sites that was fair to white players. Is everyone going against us now?

    Maybe DD slipped up and/or has hired someone who isn't like the rest of their writers. Certainly isn't good news, as they were the only site that seemed to treat some White players fairly.

    They were never completely fair- just somewhat reasonable. I don't think that they even ranked Austin Collie as their number one slot WR last year and only listed him as top 100. They also had Jacob Hester as their 9th tailback at one point and Danny Woodhead at on the cusp a couple years back and then dropped Hester down to on the cusp of the top ten and Woodhead completely off the list.

    I think DD is feeling pressure of the utter anti white radicals out there who want to protect the NFL product as "fair" (b/c they work close with guys connected to the NFL). I am disappointed in their WR rankings this year, but they are for the most part better than every other mainstream site elsewhere.

    I did notice they seem to be hyping up 5th round type black QB prospects like Jarrett Brown or 7th round/ UFA guys like Joe Webb as the next super star on their blog recently. I guess they think this will allow them to rank white RBs more fairly without the cultural Marxists getting on their back. If they want to talk about an underrated black QB- who is ranked as a UFA by lots of scouts, but should probably be drafted late they should pick Darryl Clark. He is ranked behind Juice Williams by lots of analysts including themselves- which is ridiculous because Clark throws a nice ball on short and intermediate routes and is solid on deep throws, senses and avoids the rush well and is solid at reading defenses unlike "This Juice is Spoiled" Williams. If Juice Williams or headcase Ryan Perriloux is drafted- it will be a huge joke, but I wouldn't be surprised.Edited by: ToughJ.Riggins

    i'd draft him on the basis of his name alone, think about the pun...

    dd always seems to be rooting for an underdog, in that case maybe they see these mediocre QBs as underdogs? not sure, what's going on there.

    Yeah maybe DD roots for black QBs thinking they're underdogs, but this is not the case anymore- which is why we call some of them "quotabacks".

    I was disappointed in DDs WR rankings and the safety rankings could be better too...but I wouldn't call Gerhart being ranked 3rd pre-combine outright "unfair". And they still have Jake Sharp as the 18th RB- which would put him about the 7th round, not great, but still- that would be two white tailbacks being drafted which hasn't happened in a long time.

    Well draftdaddy has Bulaga as their number one ranked Tackle. They did have a piece up saying how he was faster, more athletic, stronger, bigger and faced better competition than Okung. But they must have pussied out and taken it down. 9\10 tackles are black just great. http://www.draftdaddy.com/ranks/top10_OT.htm

    I'm not positive, but I think Draft Daddy consists of just one man who writes and links everything. It's possible that he took some heat privately for having a site that is viewed favorably at Caste Football and consequentlyjoined the rest of the herd by becomingless fair and more mindlessly pro-black, but that is just speculating on my part.

    Quite possible Don. A shame that they may have chickened out. They clearly are a completely different site than this one and can- and they do- do things differently to separate themselves from CF. It takes "courage" to make a difference and do the right thing. Most people will just follow with the flock when the going gets tough.

    I don't think the guys who run DD have spent much time on CF, but I'm sure they have brushed through it a handful of times like over 1 million computers have. It's a shame that they may be too scared to stand up for what is right, when the going gets tough...Maybe they were slandered by someone?

    According to the contact info- it is two guys that work for the site, but one probably has more control and is the proprietor of it.
