    Excellent highlights. I see no reason he can’t succeed in the NFL if given the opportunity.

    BYU WR Dax Milne declares for the draft. My guess is Zach Wilson is going to be doing the same.

    It would be a smart move by both of them. Dax Milne was the 4th leading receiver in all of college football and Wilson was the 3rd leading qb in passing yards! :)

    Good news. Wilson did the smart thing as there was nothing else he could do at the college level - they wouldn't of let BYU into the playoff even if they went undefeated next year. He had nothing left to prove and his stock is as high as it will be.

    When it comes to White QBs entering the draft process, quality is of course the most important thing, but quantity matters too. You never know when a QB might go down with an injury, or get sent to a team where quarterbacks go to die, or get stuck with a Rodent Nagy-type coach who will ruin his development. The more whites we can put into the pipeline, the better. Glad to hear that Wilson and Trask have declared.

    So we have Lawrence, Wilson and Trask all among the top quarterbacks available for the NFL Draft. All 3 of these guys have starting potential day one or in the near future. All of them are very athletic and fun to watch. Trevor Lawrence is the
    cream of the crop but any team would be lucky to draft any of these 3 stud qbs!

    If Dax Milne can put up a 4.4 to a 4.5 time he should get drafted in the mid to late rounds. He has amazing hands and speed to go along with great coordination. The NFL Draft will be alot more interesting this year!

    Ok St WR Dillon Stoner has declared for the draft - he could easily be a 4th-6th rounder and carve out a career in the NFL. Underrated player but gets no hype the black Ok St WRs do.

    The WR class although not great is and will continue to be better than last years at least. That was the worst group I can ever remember. We were hyping some scrub from ND like he was some combination of Wes Welker and Steve Largent. Milne doesn't appear to have that magical 40 yard straight line speed, but is one hell of a receiver. Someone will get the Theilen, Kupp steal in the late rounds or UDFA.

    We shall see. I think all seniors have to declare by Jan 15th. I am interested to see what happens with the 4 very talented white DBs and if Borghi declares (which he should IMO).

    I wish there were more white OL in this draft. I've looked at various mock drafts and just about every damn one of these guys are sumos. I've even said it before, the sumo push annoys me more than the quotaback push. At least with quotabacks, it's glaringly obvious when they suck. With the sumos, it takes more of a keen eye to spot when they whiff on a block or get beat like a drum since it all happens so fast in real time. We've seen these all sumo or nearly all sumo O-lines get dominated (I have yet to see one that's actually good) yet we're told the best OLinemen coming out of college are all black. It seriously pisses me off

    Look at Isiah Wilson - the Titans 1st round pick. Has all the makings of a bust - he was recently spotted out partying after getting in trouble earlier this season. The best OLs are the Colts and Chiefs - both are all white. Look at the Pats decline - remember when they had a snow plow OL? The next caste push I have noticed is arm length - not just on the OL but also at LB. I heard a description yesterday about some black LB that he is the new style of LB - Long arms, tall, "athletic"(I think the announcer said 6'4" 210 lbs or something). Essentially anything to write off a white athlete.

    I do think there are some quality white OL in this draft - once all the declarations are made I'll revise my list and do my position reviews.. I have noticed Walker Little has gone from being a surefire 1st round pick to a forgotten player. All the long armed blacks magically leapfrogged him. The kid from NDSU seems to be fairly highly regarded - Dillon Radunz (sp?).

    Poor Ryan Tannehill can't catch a break when it comes to sumos. First Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas have him peeing blood due to their ineptitude, then he misses over a year with an ACL tear due to a missed block by Branden Albert, and now he has to deal with this clown. People wonder why offensive line play is down as compared to years past. Look no further than this stupid sumo trend.

    Trevor Lawrence officially declares.

    Stanford Qb Davis Mills declares too - kind of a strange decision. He could of helped himself if he stayed for his senior season.

    Didn't realize Mills was so highly rated coming out of HS! I didn't catch many, if any Pac12 games this season, agreed probably could have benefited from another season. He did finish 2020 season hot, so maybe he is ready to test the NFL waters. Could end up being better pro than College QB?

    Fullbacks have not completely gone away in the NFL. Not exactly sure how many are currently on NFL Rosters?
    LSU's under utilized Fullback Tory Carter( 6'-0 244) has declared...whether he's a Late Round Pick or UDFA...expect him to be on a NFL Roster! He's animalistic on the field ; if he doesnt make it in the NFL he should go into MMA.

    According to CBS Sports going thru 4 Rounds .....Middle Tennessee DB Reed Blankenship is a Projected 4th Rounder. Then the list of prospects stops. They will likely update/add the 5th - 7th soon....Nolan Turner(Clemson) & Brady Breeze (Oregon) should be there...

    McShay has QB's Trevor Lawrence #1 ; Zach Wilson @ # 4 ahead of Justin Fields #15 & Mac Jones @ #21 in the 1st Round

    Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence going #1 in back-to-back years would make a strong statement that despite all the propaganda, the traditional, elite (and NFL-ready) white passer is still the gold standard for QBs.

    The combine may be cancelled this year due to the "pandemic". It has been well documented over the years how much the combine does it's best to whittle out as many white athletes as possible from it's invite list. If the combine is cancelled then it will be interesting to see what they decide to do. Pro Days are really the only shot white DBs and WRs have at even getting noticed.

    Lol the 9 month plandemic has carried into 21. Whatever glimmer of hope we had that this year would be better has been quickly discredited this 1st week.

    Who knows if Pro Days will help. I feel scouts will just flock to the Affletic schools. and the smaller pro days will be ignored..

    Irish pubs around the world are planning big celebrations for St. Patrick's Day 2022, for three years in one after the past two were cancelled by the p(l)andemic. This, of course, is assuming that (((they))) will let us get back to normal in 2022.

    Looks like Cleveland is going to get Clevelanded for the 2021 draft.

    I noticed a wide out from Houston Baptist getting a small amount of talk.
    Ben Ratzlaff. I’m not sure if he’s been mentioned here.
