    Bengals make a smart pick for their O-line, finally some intelligence.

    Bengals draft a Whitey to protect Burrow.

    By drafting as few White QBs as possible in the first 4 rounds, it'll be much easier for the ones who are drafted in the later rounds to be cut, practice squad stashed, or left to rot on the bench until they're bounced out of the league in a few years without the fans asking questions.

    Of course the Patriots draft a QB. That pick makes zero sense.

    I'm curious to see where OT Matt Waletzko goes. He has 36" arms and high end athleticism but needs work on his game.

    The one team that shouldn't draft a QB drafts a QB. This is how bigunrealitis is made. That pick was nothing more than a slap in the face to Mac Jones.

    Kyle Phillips is better than Calvin Austin. Steelers with their prototypical draft one White and the rest black draft.

    I actually think the pick Zappe makes sense for the Patriots, Hoyer isn't much of a qb tbf and is mid thirties and there's a need for a decent back up of the future with Stidham not really impressing.

    Green Bay or Black Bay at it again.

    Packers could have corrected their mistake with Jordan Love more than once in this round and instead draft a sumo and black WR.

    Austin is a midget, he'll be a kick returner and have occasional gadget plays at best.

    At least this is Kevin Colbert's last draft, not that I expect things to improve after he retires.

    When the Redskins drafted Kirk Cousins in the 4th round, all the talking heads were going on and on about how it was a huge show of "disrespect" to Robert Griffin. Mac Jones deserves more respect than Griffin.

    The Patriots could have waited until the 7th round to pick a backup QB. With the way things have been going, there'll still be several decent White QBs available even then.

    Ravens draft a player I’ve never heard of. Not easy to do lol! ESPN’s 276 ranked player in round 4…

    Kiper: "Good instincts can overcome a lack of measurables" when it comes to cornerbacks. Why then have Whites, fast and not so fast, been banned from the position for generations?

    The Ravens should have drafted a QB for Jackson insurance.

    With so many White players going to teams with black QBs, it's actually a little refreshing to see the Ravens pick a black TE.

    Good point probably would find someone available late in the draft, guess they just want some insurance at the position and fancied him.

    A lot of Black QBs like to have good TEs as safety valves and more. Kelce and Andrews currently, going back in time, Steve McNair was pretty much incapable of hitting Drew Bennett deep but he loved to throw to Frank Wychek underneath.

    Pretty brutal round 4 other than TE’s.

    7 Whites in round 4 (I don't count the specialists)

    Hopefully this means Boyle will be cut and can go to a better place. I also pray Andrews will somehow find a way to get out of there though they signed him to a big extension last year.

    Every year is groundhog day. I keep expecting to see a run on White players but the NFL pulls out all the stops to get as many obscure blacks drafted.

    By my count that's 10 whites in the 4th round, bringing the total to 30/143:

    3 specialists
    2 offensive tackles
    4 tight ends (2 to a team with a quotaback)
    1 quarterback (to a team that already has an established white starter)

    Howell to the Redskins...can't knock that pick. Howell is a steal at this point.
