Max Kellerman — ‘NFL is racist because Justin Fields is falling in mock drafts’…
.@maxkellerman has his "antenna up" regarding Justin Fields sliding in mock drafts.

ESPN began the week by lying to its readers, publishing a column accusing the NFL of racism against black quarterbacks. — “When it comes to black quarterbacks in particular, the NFL has long gone out of its way to keep the position as white as the painted yard lines on the field.”
But Johnson didn’t go far enough for ESPN brass. Max Kellerman, who has long acted as the race apologist on ESPN, continued to push the lie that American sports are inherently racist on Tuesday.
“What I’ve noticed in recent years, after decades of artificial barriers being put in place for Black QBs, that Black QBs tend to fall pre-draft,” Kellerman said on ESPN’s First Take.
There’s only one problem with Kellerman’s take — It’s simply not true.
None of these ESPN talents are willing to explain why Jameis Winston, Jamarcus Russell, Cam Newton, Kyler Murray, and Michael Vick all went first overall in the NFL Draft.
