    With LB Justin Lawler undergoing foot surgery, it appears as though the Rams will have approximately 19-20 whites on their roster to open the 2019 campaign. They will most likely consist of the following players:

    QB – Goff, Bortles

    WR – Kupp

    TE – Higbee, Mundt

    OL – Whitworth, Havenstein, Allen, Blythe, Edwards, Neary (Brewer could also make it)

    DL – Gaines, Fox

    LB – Matthews, Hager

    DB – Weddle

    K/P/LS – Zuerlein, Hekker, McQuaide

    Rookie safety, Taylor Rapp, is the product of a white male, Asian female pairing. By his own admission (see his numerous interviews during the draft process), he self-identifies as an "Asian Athlete." He even has tattoos with Asian characters. He's simply not white...

    Of course, any racially-conscious white man will be rooting hard for WR Cooper Kupp as he returns from his ACL tear. His 2018 season was great fun to watch until his injury, however, given his drive and dedication, he's destined to have a 1,000-yard season in the next few years...

    Terrific news! Hager will be among the fastest inside/ middle linebackers in the NFL. I remember him making a lot of tackles at Baylor.

    Notice how the Rams started winning more when they started giving white players more opportunities.

    I am 100% Asian, I can tell you Rapp only took his Chinese roots for media use, never really think he's Chinese unless he could have career in China,
    just like Jeremy Lin(NBA) does in China/Taiwan.

    For Chinese speaking nations (China/Taiwan, but a bit different), woman having marriage with white male, their children are white.
    One thing is the key clue, we don't tattoo Chinese words/characters on our body, that is not cool, that's why you only saw pathetic western people
    having Chinese characters on their bodies, mostly what had tattoo on them does not match what the meaning they wished to.

    Check Rapp's left arm, the biggest character is COW, yes, that cow (differs from bull), it's trendy these days Chinese take "Bull (which has bigger penis, means more testosterone )" as someone is rock.

    Ximasa, interesting analogy of Rapp and Chinese/Asian culture. I agree that Asian especially Chinese people will NEVER see a half white/Chinese baby as Chinese it is entrenched in Chinese culture and will never change. As far as tattoos go, I have seen many Chinese males and females with tattoos whilst in China so it does exist and is getting more popular each passing day.

    Yes, gang members have tattoos and that's it. I remember one time meeting a member of a Chinese triad who lived at his parents middle class house in the suburbs, dealt drugs and was later smoked by gang members on his parents driveway he was covered in them.

    Good news keeps coming. I watched Iowa play several times last year and one defender, in particular, really stuck out. To me, he looked like a definite NFL prospect, but considering his "paint job", I knew he'd have a tough road to the NFL. So far his road has been tough (undeservedly went undrafted). The rarest of birds -- a white NFL defensive back, he was the only white Practice Squad defensive back in the NFL**, until today. But Jake Gervase persevered and finally got some good news : https://nfltraderumors.co/rams-promote-db-jake-gervase-from-practice-squad/


    **In total there are close to 330 total Practice Squad players. So no white Practice Squad defensive backs is notable and unfortunate.

    Gervase was great for Iowa. He was all over the place in their bowl game against Florida and was a complete afterthought during the draft process. Great to see him get promoted to the active roster. I feel he is superior to their half asian/half white 2nd round pick Taylor Rapp who undoubtedly received alot of hype in college due to being partially asian.
