    From Josh Katzenstein on NOLA.com:

    Maybe he “graded” poorly as an OLB because he was really an MLB?

    Browns player Joe Schobert tied for the league lead for tackles with 144. It was a three way tie with the Packers' Blake Martinez and the Bills' Preston Brown.

    Schobert was a walk-on at Wisconsin. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. Clearly he should have been drafted higher.

    Schobert will be a quality inside 'backer for years to come.

    Weddle's 6 INT's were 2 off the league lead of 8.

    The last time a white player led the NFL in INT's was Weddle himself with San Diego, who had 7 INT's in 2011.

    Before him it was Minnesota's Brian Russell, who had 9 INT's in 2003.

    Before him it was Atlanta's Scott Case, who had 10 INT's in 1988.

    Before him it was Washington's Mark Murphy, who had 9 in 1983.

    The record for most career playoff interceptions is held by 2 white DB's. Charlie Waters, Dallas Cowboys and Bill Simpson, Los Angeles Rams with 9, however, they do share this stat with Ed Reed and Ronnie Lott.
    This should be on the white DB's thread. Is there one on the NFL thread?

    That was a great season by Brian Russell. Somehow he didn't make the Pro Bowl. But his teammate, safety Corey Chavous managed to make it in with fewer tackles, fewer interceptions, and 0 sacks. That's right around the time I started to 'figure it out'...

    Same here. Brad Hoover's MNF performance in 2000 was the initial thing that made me curious and I began to slowly awaken to the caste system and by 2003 with Russell's great season I was pretty much awake to the realization of anti-white discrimination.

    Scooby Wright was cut by the Cardinals just prior to the beginning of this season. No one else picked him up. It's likely his NFL career is over.

    Here independent analyst That Franchise Guy gives his list of "My Guys" for the 2022 NFL draft. He mentions Leo Chenal and Malcolm Rodriguez in the video.
    TFG has his own opinions and is more favorable toward white players than most.

    TFG thinks Rodriguez is close to being as good as Nakobe Dean. I'll be interested in seeing how that take turns out.

    Chenal starts at 28:22 and Rodriguez at 29:14.
