    That time of the year again! 37 year old Eric Weddle came out of retirement in last years NFL Playoffs to Win a Super Bowl Ring for the L.A. Rams; only to retire again. All Pro Harrison Smith Age 33 cant play forever.

    Last year's NFL Draft for white DB's was beyond disappointing with ZERO picked or even invited to the NFL Combine . Thought it looked more promising when making the 2021 DB Preview figured 2 maybe 3 ; even 4 (Blankenship; Turner ; Nelson & Weatherford) would be Drafted.

    It is going to be extra interesting what transpires this coming season led by All America CORNER BACK Riley Moss!?....he missed time hurt last season with a knee injury. He’s one of the best playmakers in the country!
    There are several young promising high impact DB's too!

    Riley Moss (Sr.) 6 '- 1" 194 Iowa "Corner Back
    Pre-Season All American candidate.... 2 INT's for TD's vs Indiana last year( 3 TD's in his career); 10 Career INT's; 25 pass deflections in 26 career starts! Held off the NFL another year. HS Champ High Hurdler

    80% of YT defensive backs are former walk ons apparently. Funny coincidence


    Excellent post.

    Great list, that covers basically all of the high profile DB’s!

    Tyler Venables (JR) 5’10” 200lbs Clemson
    Venables is the son of new Oklahoma head coach Brent Venables. In his first 2 years Venables has 61 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 1 sack, 1 INT, 6 PD. Hopefully he can continue to expand his role in 2022.
    upload_2022-6-13_1-4-36.jpeg

    Grayson Cash (SR) 6’0” 200lbs UAB
    Cash is entering his 6th season at UAB and is cemented as a starter at safety. In his career he has 85 tackles, 4 TFL, 6 INT, 1 TD, 2 FF, and 8 PD. He originally came to UAB as a CB.
    upload_2022-6-13_1-8-32.jpeg

    Nate Bauer (JR) 6’0” 200lbs Toledo
    Bauer has become one of Toledo’s best defensive players. Bauer is a 5th year junior with 2 seasons of eligibility left. His career stats are 120 tackles, 10.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 3 INT, and 3 PD.
    upload_2022-6-13_1-12-16.jpeg

    Asa Turner (JR) 6’3” 200lbs Washington
    Turner should be a full time starter in 2022 as a junior. So far in his career he has 68 tackles, 4 TFL, 4 INT, and 1 PD.
    upload_2022-6-13_1-15-44.jpeg

    Robby Hauck (SR) 5’10” 185lbs Montana
    Hauck is an undersized tackling machine in the FCS. His dad is the Montana head coach. Career totals of 364 tackles, 16 TFL, 4 sacks, 1 INT, 5 FF, and 9 PD.

    Appreciate that Leonardfan & Bucky (Celtic DB)..means a lot coming from you two. Where would CF be without y'alls consistency!

    Thanks Sneaky Quick! Not sure what YT means ha ha....4 of those top 12 are former Walk-on's

    Yes indeed Red Raider! Solid post as always! Was getting ready to add 4 more DB's and you got 3 of them(Cash; Bauer; Turner) ! lol Thanks for adding swiss-army-knife Tyler Venables. Hopefully he will become starter....and the FCS Montana Grizz too! Hauck comes from good bloodlines!

    Ammon Hanneman (Soph.) 6'- 1" 200 BYU
    Promising '21 season as a reserve; Projected Starter in '22

    Michael Tutsie (Sr.) 5'-11" 193 North Dakota State

    Here are a couple CB’s who have a chance to make an impact in 2022. We would’ve had one more but I believe former Rice CB Andrew Bird has graduated and moved on from football.

    Ryan Stapp (JR) 6’0” 175lbs Minnesota
    Stapp is a CB that transferred from FCS Abilene Christian. He actually has a solid shot to become a starter at Minnesota and I’d be ecstatic if he does. In 3 seasons he had 91 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 4 INT (1 TD), 2 FF, 1 FR, 16 PD, and 296 kick return yards.
    upload_2022-6-14_0-35-24.jpeg

    Ethan Bonner (SR) 6’1” 192lbs Stanford
    Bonner is a 5th year player but I believe he has 2 years of eligibility left because of covid if he wants to use it. His opportunities to be a starting CB are starting to dwindle so hopefully he can make it happen this year. He has 5 career starts with 4 coming in 2021. 30 tackles and 1 TFL in his career.

    White cornerbacks are as rare as walking dinosaurs. Must be the New Jurassic Park Movie. Good luck to both of these guys. I love watching athletic guys that can fun and jump out of the gym or in this case football field.

    I agree with alot of you that seeing the pics and sometimes videos of the guys we root for make it even better. It gets my hyped up! Thanks to all of you guys as you are the battery that makes the lights go on. Amazing job as
    usual guys! There is so much talent on this board.

    I made a comment on that story. Let's see if it gets approved. In looking over most of the other comments I see alot of the boomer mentality - the same boomer mentality that helped sell this country out.

    The spindly armed goofs on that thread going on and on about "sports ball" as if they are going to save Whites by debating a bunch of cucked out Boomers is pretty much a failed tactic, neither group would even try and ask the caste whores a difficult question, much less try and degrade the caste whores in any meaningful way.

    Edit; that was an excellent comment
