    Maybe we got ourselves a diamond here.

    I know more than likely at least 2 will make the team, if history holds true.

    Good read.
    The guy sounds like a potential find.

    They lost me at this part though, as I thought it was 2014 now:
    I guess we still have a looong way to go in society, segregation is alive and well apparently.

    I'm surprised there aren't more tight ends.

    Fullington or McCray should toss Lindsey, Rettig is a nice prospect, Couple of nice ILB, PERILLO IS SHORT GODDAMMIT.

    Why so many talented RB?! Remember when we argued over whether Harris or Franklin makes the roster? Neither might.

    Packers add another two undrafted free agents in Alabama OLB Adrian Hubbard and Mississippi State DE Denico Autry.

    Pfff... The historically black university is a vestige of segregation but anyone can attend today. Some of these schools no longer have a majority black student population. In the southeast, where these are concentrated, I have observed a much healthier black middle class and more racially-integrated neighborhoods. Is this the product of historically black universities? -I dunno. But it seems like blacks have more going for themselves in this part of the country and I think institutions that black people can take pride in contributes to that.

    In contrast, when I return home to Wisconsin, I'm usually struck by the virtual absence of blacks outside small pockets in Milwaukee and, to a lesser degree, Madison (many of the country's most segregated cities in America are located in the upper Midwest- check out the link). But I don't think Wisconsin boasts any historically black universities so I guess you have that to feel good about. A long way to go is right.

    Big picture: it's mistaken to suggest that historically black universities are simply a product of segregation rather than a part of the fix.

    Maybe TT gets the last laugh. I wanted a ILB too but after Mosley there was a huge drop off. If you look at "Joe Thomas" out of South Carolina State, his pro day numbers compare to Mosely's. In fact his vertical jump and bench press reps are higher. He is a little smaller but was an all-american at South Carolina State and was the key component in the no.1 run defense in the nation. He is also said to have a high football I.Q.

    We sure do. And it starts with people like you, who support white power groups. Those groups advocate violence. I would rather there not be halls of fame based on race but the difference between the two is massive in scope and impact.

    Hubbard is great against the run and setting the edge. Hes not much of a pass rusher though. But hes stout against the run at the OLB spot. Hes a big OLB. 6'6 265

    I think Hubbard is the only guy the Packers brought in expected to be drafted. He didn´t have a great season and should have probably stayed in college for another year.

    I expect them to be just bodies for the rookie orientation camp and don´t expect any of them to make it to camp.

    He had already gotten his degree, which is why I believe he entered the draft. He's also known to be cocky though.

    I like jake doughty and joe Thomas. I think one will make the roster and one will hit the PS. Doughty is kind of exciting. He's fast. He's just undersized but idk, maybe he pulls a Jamari Lattimore and surprises. Think he's more polished than Lattimore at the position even though Lattimore has been in the league a few years.

    Oh let's not start with the personal attacks again here.
    I don't advocate violence at all, except in self-defense... I just think if it's fair for one group, it should be fair for the others.

    This is 2014, not 1964.
    I don't believe there should be BET, United Negro College Fund, Miss Black America, etc. but since there is, I believe there should be able to be the vice versa's as well.
    That's all.

    Back to football. This is why I have you on ignore, but bit this time and clicked the SEE IGNORED CONTENT.

    I should know about Ryan White but I don't. Since they both went UDFA, we should've signed Chris Davis, who is a decent corner and pretty good returner. But Ted got outsmarted again, this time by San Diego.

    Also I've seen Rettig play, I expect him to maybe be Practice Squad for a year or to be cut. NO way right now he's better than Tolzien.

    He would have had another year of college football eligibility. Maybe he uses not being drafted as motivation to show all other teams they made a mistake.
