DOUG GOTTLIEB SHOW – Doug Gottlieb reacts to ESPN’s Max Kellerman who talked about this trend of black quarterbacks’ stock falling before the draft, saying:
“I know it’s on my radar,” the “First Take” co-host said. “Sometimes quarterbacks rise, sometimes they fall, but what I’ve noticed, in recent years after decades of artificial barriers being put in place for Black quarterbacks is that vis-a-vis White quarterbacks, Black quarterbacks in the draft tend to fall pre-draft.
“Sometimes it’s right, Daniel Jones looks like he’s going to be better than Dwayne Haskins. And sometimes it’s wrong. Mitch Trubisky is not as good as Deshaun Watson or certainly not Patrick Mahomes.
“The point is, the correlation that can be made, is that your status falls, vis a vis White quarterbacks, and so that’s why my antenna are up when I notice one, two and three this year – White guy, White guy, White guy. But that may be correct. We need to see in the end how these guys turn out as pros.”
Doug Gottlieb disputes this and breaks it down in several ways where he thinks Kellerman has it wrong.
