Oxymoron: Talented White Guy

Up until thirty seconds ago, I've never believed in another human being more than I believed in Mel Kiper Jr. Now, I'm not so sure.

So what's changed?

You see that picture above, the one of a white guy who looks like he's in an alt-rock band? Well his name is Jacob Hester, he plays football for LSU, and Mel Kiper currently has him ranked the No. 1 senior RB in college football.

Say whaaaaaaa?

A highly regarded white RB? Really? Brian Leonard rushed for over 100 yards eight days ago, and now this? What decade is it? Am I dreaming? Is this the Apocalypse? Should Craig James be worried that he won't be remembered as the last white dude to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season?

Questions man, questions.
