LSU has plenty but yes the entire sec has fat slow sumos that cuck scouts, coaches, and dwf have convinced themselves are athletic good players
Nearly 30 years ago when I could watch 3 football games in a day and never lose interest I stumbled upon a HBCU game on BET. And I absently minded thought to myself this is where they stash the slow large offensive linemen. Of course one team had a LB that was lightening quick so much so that he made every other player look slow ( I think he went to TB, not sure). So I assume the caste system has run thru that talent pool

Darnell Savage, huge BUST at Safety!


Darnell Savage was one of the heroes of the Packers' victory over the Cowboys in the wild-card round, but it has otherwise been a tough season for the former first-round pick.

In the loss to San Francisco, Savage dropped a potential pick-six, got beaten in coverage by George Kittle for a touchdown, and missed a tackle on Christian McCaffrey's touchdown run.

Savage struggled in coverage this season. According to Pro Football Reference, he allowed a career-high 78.3 completion percentage, with quarterbacks earning a 106.9 passer rating in his coverage. It was Savage's third straight season allowing a passer rating above 100. He also had a missed-tackle percentage of 13.6, almost tying his career-worst.


Savage missed seven games due to injury and struggled for consistency when he played. The Packers should start over at the safety position this offseason, which likely means moving on from Savage, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Three of the Packers' starting safeties from this season will hit free agency in March: Savage, Jonathan Owens, and Rudy Ford. They may opt to bring one of them back and then turn to the draft. However, general manager Brian Gutekunst isn't afraid to completely start over at a position, as we've seen at tight end and wide receiver over the past couple of offseasons.

All 3 of those Safeties stink. But if you “look” the part they will let any a**hole play back there.
Not Dallin Leavitt though. Interesting that they had him on the depth chart on their own website but when it was next man up they went to Ford over Dallin.

Was reflecting on the 49ers recent rosters and was reminded of LB, Reuben Foster. Foster, in addition to being a bust symbolized how the Caste system gives certain players numerous chances due to 'upside'.

Foster was overrated at Alabama, even when he won the Butkus, you could see that his game had real holes. And he had numerous off field issues ( his father had shot his mother and lived for decades on the run) including getting into an altercation at the combine. Yet, he was taken as a 1st rounder by the 49ers, right after TJ Watt.

His pro career exhibited a similar pattern of on field under performance and off field issues. But after 49ers released him, Washington signed him where the same pattern repeated. Again after being released by Washington and being out of the league, both Miami & Seattle decided that he may be the answer to their linebacker issues and gives him a workout which he failed.

Never heard of him but I bet he still has plenty of upside!
I’m sure he’s a good boy who dindu nuffin. In fact, he was likely framed by racist White cops who planted the evidence. I’m sure an NFL team will give him another chance.

Unlike that bad honkey Matt Jones, who was exiled from the league for drinking a beer on a golf course (while on probation). The NFL is an equal opportunity employer….

Quite a fall for the 15th pick of the first round in 2020. Remember all the hype about how he was "NFL ready" (usually the kiss of death for black prospects). And in addition to being a flop compared to the pre-draft expectations surrounding him, he's a prima donna to boot. Quite a combination, sounds like the kind of player the current Browns regime loves:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Broncos agreed to a trade to send Jerry Jeudy to the Browns in exchange for 2024 fifth and sixth-round draft picks.
Jeudy has presumably been on the trade block since last fall, with reports surfacing in October that the team turned down a third and fifth-round pick in exchange for the former first-rounder. Selected by the Broncos with the 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jeudy has shown flashes at times but has struggled to live up to expectations. Through 44 career games, he’s amassed 211 receptions for 3,053 yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging a solid 14.5 YPR. Now set to play opposite Amari Cooper, Jeudy, who is in the final year of his rookie deal, will hope a breakout campaign in 2024 can earn him a new contract next offseason. The trade saves the Broncos $12.987 million in cap space for the upcoming season and could also open the door for Marvin Mims to make a year-two leap after seeing limited action as a rookie.

Not a bust but certainly didn't live up to the hype. Also very undersized for a 1st round WR. A career average of 11.6 YPC also is not great considering he was viewed as a speedy outside WR. Speaking of undersized the Cardinals seem to be fully invested in the manlet with no intention of brining in competition for him. Would be nice if Kenny Pickett, Daniel Jones, Mac Jones, Zach Wilson enjoyed that kind of job security. I fully expect Arizona to be a middling 7-9 team next year as well.

It’s unbelievable how the media will bend over backwards to defend mediocre black players. The article says “while he’s only had 1 1k yard season, he’s still been remarkably consistent over his 5 year career” lol. Yeah marquise brown has been remarkably average, his production could be matched by an udfa or a late round pick

One of the biggest examples of the total lack of white privilege ever.

Jones - 6’4”, 230 lbs and ran a 4.3 forty with a 39” vertical.

Second round bust with 117 career catches for 1,087 yards (under 10 yards per reception for an alleged speedburner) signs a deal with the Eagles going into his sixth NFL season. Dat upside:

Eagles signed WR Parris Campbell, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.
In his lone season with the Giants in 2023, Campbell totaled 20 receptions for 104 yards in 12 games. The oft-injured receiver was a healthy scratch for the final five weeks of the season and may need to battle for a spot on the Eagles’ 53-man roster in camp. Campbell has caught 117 passes for 1,087 yards and five touchdowns in his career and went for a personal best, 63-623-3, in 2022.

Third round pick in '22, already released by two teams, has 30 career tackles and 3 sacks:

Texans waived EDGE Myjai Sanders.
Sanders was originally drafted in the third round by the Cardinals in 2022 but only made it to the middle of the 2023 season before being waived. The Texans then claimed him and used him as a rotational pass-rusher in the second half of the year. Sanders will have to compete for a roster spot somewhere else around the league this summer.

Extra credit points if you can pronounce his first name.

This guy is a bust. I remember during his draft cycle reading comments on other forums about this guy really typing him up and stating he has a “cool name”. Once again the draft weenies were wrong.

49ers have made a few stupid signings this offseason - signing this guy as well as Josh Dobbs. Hopefully they draft some White guys to balance out the past few years of bad drafts outside of striking gold with Purdy.

Yes, and “kool-aid” mckinstry will be the first CB drafted this year. Last year it was “sauce” gardner. A joke name definitely enhances their draft status.

Cooper should start going by the name “chicken-wing DeJean”! It’ll bump him up a few draft spots
