The Senior Bowl released it's watch list today. I have gone through to identify all the White athletes on the list for the NFL draft.

Thanks for making this list Leonardfan! Nice work!

J.R Plumlee will be the most explosive ; exciting QB in college football. Will the NFL give him a shot at QB or move him to the Julian Edelman / Taysom Hill Swiss-Army -Knife role?

WR Brennan Pressley is black

Glad to see Hudson Clark on the list ....Hudson Card is the QB at Purdue

The number of D-Lineman on the list is a little more encouraging.

Will Juniors like TE Brock Bowers ; RB Carson Steele; CB Cooper Dejean & Safety Cole Bishop declare for the ' 24 Draft?

Will Shipley certainly could be opting out of his senior season as well.
I’d like to see him stay at Clemson. I always want our running backs to stay. McCaffrey and Shipley are few outliers. Think of all of the senior seasons we lost out on and never got NFL views.....Luke Staley, Ryan Nall, to name a few.

Hopefully Shipley has a great junior year and declares. As well as the 4 twentytwo mentioned! We need star power in NFL!

It's great to see QB Drake Maye projected at number 3. Somehow with the magical qb push everywhere these days I doubt he
will go that high. He may fall out of the top 10 as no team wants to be called racist by drafting a white qb. Sad the times we are in!

I expected Brock Bowers to be very high but I'm glad even with the injury that he hasn't fallen as of now.

Cooper Dejean is just too good to pass up. I would put him fro the 10th to the 15th pick but I will take 22 if it happens!

I love that DeJean keeps inching higher and higher.

Overall though, I get a feeling that these rankings are more and more solidified as a consensus opinion each year rather than a blend of scouting, speculation, and projected team need.

The example I keep thinking of is collegiate Geno Smith. He racked up mega-stats while taking Louisville to a 10-3 record as a junior in 2011. I recall him being a very popular projection as the #1 overall pick at this point for the 2013 NFL draft. While he had some gaudy stat totals in 2012 as a senior, his team finished 7-6, and Smith dropped to the middle of the second round for the Jets.

Caleb Williams similarly had a robust stat performance last year despite not winning "the big one" (twice). USC will probably finish with at least one if not 2-3 more losses (vs #5 Washington, @ #8 Oregon, vs #24 UCLA, potential conference championship game, bowl opponent). He's not bad by any means, but has there been any waver in the absolute consensus that he must go #1 to change the fate of the lucky NFL team to tank the hardest?

I haven't seen very much at all of Drake Maye. But I've watched a lot of JJ McCarthy, and I'd definitely give him the nod over the prodigy at this point in the season. However, JJ didn't throw much last year (and definitely not out of an 'air raid' shotgun offense), so he seems behind the 8-ball.

That's one example. I'm wondering why Joe Alt fell behind a couple of black OT's, including Penn State's Nigerian, who did NOT fare well against Ohio State's Jack Sawyer and others.

Anyway, rant over

Always funny seeing the same number of White players projected in round 1. It never deviates unless it's less than the standard 5 or 6 White players.

Williams while not a bad QB is far from the "generational" talent that he has been labeled by everyone. He's doing similar things Johnny Manziel did in college. The hype around him along with his entitled personality are both reasons he will not live up to expectations.

The draft cycle is a practice in insanity for anyone with a rational mind (which I still think I have). The term "generational" is bandied about every year it seems about some prospect that more often than not does not pan out. I'm past all the nonsensical terminology, revisionist history, lack of accountability amongst other things that accompany every draft cycle. The supposed "experts" in the league (GM/scouts/personnel departments), the ancillary events that serve as filters to remove as many White athletes from exposure (Senior Bowl, Shrine Bowl, Combine etc), the sports journalists, sports media draft "experts", amatuer draft "experts" and the dumbed down fan bases are all garbage at assessing actual talent.

I also am tired of the lie that players are "more athletic than ever". I heard that same line 20 years ago when Julius Peppers was in the draft. Fact is these players are not more athletic than those 10, 20, 30 years ago. The focus on the 40 time along, the rule modifications and the loss of fundamentals are all playing a big role in the game today.

This is 100% true. Players are not more athletic now than before. This phrase gets me riled up.

Take a guy like Steve Young. He could have been a professional running back if he wanted.

A guy like Jim Brown, Jim Taylor, John Riggins… all over 6’ and 220 lb running backs would thrive today.

Heck the likeliest most athletic guy in the NBA today (Mac McClung) isn’t even allowed to play so these media cucks can spare me the “guys are more athletic today” mantra which is just code for there’s more black guys playing so automatically Larry Bird would struggle.

Except for the fact that Jokic, not an overly athletic guy, is absolutely dominating the NBA.

I'm Taiwanese, people here watch NBA/MLB more, in basketball we feel modern NBA experts treat American white different than European white. My colleagues (NBA broadcasting crew in my TV syndicate) feel that too and we're confused as well.

Btw, to JPN/Korea/CHN/Taiwan society , if one of the parent is white/black, that mix race kid is white/black (Taylor Rapp, Naomi Osaka in tennis...etc), not Asian .

Senior Bowl invites should be coming out starting in the next week or so. As usual I'll post the crumbs that White athletes get fed in terms of the invites.

Tulane QB Michael Pratt gets the first Senior Bowl invite. I've made some mention of him in the Tulane write-ups over the last few years. Sleeper 1st round pick if you ask me. Tulane's success under Pratt is noteworthy. He has also been a 4 year starter with a lot of experience.

That's a great start. Now let this snowball into a record number of our guys invited. I can dream can't I?

I expect LB Payton Wilson to get a Senior Bowl invite. One of the top LBs in the country.

Only knock I have on Wilson is injuries. Size, speed, and production he's a 1st rounder.

Underclassmen can now participate in the all star bowl games. Just another way to eliminate and gloss over White athletes during the draft process. Looks like the powers that be are not happy with the 50 Whites a year drafted. The Three Black QBs storyline went unchallenged and met with glee by cucked whites so the NFL is expanding the ways in which to ensure the NFL becomes even more "diverse". That's my conspiracy theory anyway.

Glad to see Lauren and Mccaffery in there. I am sure we will hear reports about how “surprising“ their performance is during the week

Yeah exactly and then unsurprisingly they won’t get drafted.

I think McCaffrey may get drafted. The NFL is far more accepting of white wide receivers than running backs (although still immensely racist towards them).

Laube will likely be a UFA but will find a place. Would love to see him paired with Josh Allen or Joe Burrow.

Is Cooper Beebe another product of the Beebe family tree of football players? I'd guess so as Beebe isn't a common surname, but then again he's a large lineman while the other Beebes have been receivers. Don Beebe was one of the most screwed over White receivers of his day given his world class speed and talent.

A different football family, apparently his brother played TE at Minnesota and his dad played at Pitt State.
