I'm glad Linderbaum is entering. His stock can't get any higher. During the bowl game everyone was saying he's the best OC/OL period. He had a scare in the game as well with an injury, but returned. He's ready to go. No need to risk any other issues.
As for Bolden, was he a starter last year? He was on the national stage all year as a starter in 2021/22. Maybe he thought his stock wouldn't get any higher as well before risking an injury.
As Leonardfan stated, after 3-4 years of playing at this level especially as a starter why not enter? Get the money while you can, I guess.

Came across a White DB - Cory Rahman from Tennessee state. Looks like he transferred up from the Division 2 level to the FCS level at an HBCU no less lol.

Sumo heavy 1st Rd. Far too many CBs(every year). Only 1 Black QB in Willis. Who imo, if White,would have been 5-7th Rd pick.

That being said if Hutchinson, Thomas, and Karlaftis all get drafted.. Big news! Along with Lindenbaum and Penning at OL. Corral, Howell, and Pickett at QB. TE Trey McBride to GB would round out a solid 1st rd.

Man it would be great to see Rodgers throwing to a white receiver/tight end again especially a beast like McBride!

Nebraska DT Ben Stille received an invite to the Shrine Game...giving us one more White player at a caste position.

Miami OH DB Sterling Weatherford moved to the racially appropriate position of LB for the Senior Bowl.

I would love for some lurkers/observers to join and tell us why the patterns we have observed and picked up on over the years are incorrect.

Lurkers just let it happen and vent a bit, you know white players are screwed. I lurked for years, Im glad I joined the conversation. Rooting for white athletes and expressing your concerns on their treatment doesn’t make you a neo nazi klan member.

Didn’t you hear Bucky? Willis is this year’s Josh Allen?! That’s what all the draft cucks are saying now.

Pickett, Corall, Howell and Strong should all go in the first round. Pickett has become my fav QB prospect in this draft, Carson Strong is number 2 as his arm is just a notch below Herbert and Allen.

Looks like the NFLPA Bowl practices were this week. Went through some of the summaries around our guys. Predictable as ever.

#97 DE Zach VanValkenburg, Iowa, 6040, 264, 0948, 3238, 7938
Put some dynamite on the train tracks and you still might not be able to stop this locomotive, as VanValkenburg possesses a non-stop motor and contagious energy level. He has made noticeable strides each season for the Hawkeyes, as evidenced by his 15 tackles for loss this past season, including five and a half sacks. He continued to impress going through the bag drills during the first day of practice and noticeably stood out above the others. While VanValkenburg isn’t expected to wow scouts in the testing department, his understanding of fundamentals, relentless mentality, football instincts and leadership intangibles make him worth a late-round investment.


LB Jack Cochrane, South Dakota
An instinctive linebacker with high football intelligence, Cochrane has been around the football consistently in every practice session. Reading and reacting quickly, he beats moving blockers to spots and stops ball-carriers around or behind the line of scrimmage. Cochrane has also impressed in coverage, where he is patient.

From what I’ve read it seems like Kyle Philips has been the most impressive player at the East-West Shrine Game. I think he will be picked in round 5.

Is that going on this week to? I have been following the Senior Bowl...I thought the shrine game was next week...I'll have to take a look.

I'll do my best to dig through and find info from both.

Dulcich outplayed Likely but, it won't matter cause he's somehow not naturally talented enough..

Just went back and looked through all the stats and achievements of all the white WR’s in this draft class. It’s the best one I’ve seen since I’ve been following the draft!

Following the draft I just remembered the vomit inducing caste snub of Cornell CB David Jones. Idk why I thought of him but makes me sick

Kyle Philips did not participate in the East-West Shrine Bowl today. Rumor is he will be joining the Senior Bowl, he could very well end up around 3-4 pick especially if he tests well at the combine.
