    There was a half Iranian kid named Nick Ekbatani at UCLA last year who played O-line. Not sure if he's still there or not.

    yeah he was a Juco transfer. He still is there and most likely will be a starter given how slim the O-line is

    reminds me of tj houshmandzadeh LOL

    Touraj (T. J.) Houshmandzadeh, Jr. (born September 26, 1977 in Victorville, California) is an American football player of Iranian and African-American descent (father is Iranian, mother is African-American) who plays wide receiver for the National Football League's Cincinnati Bengals. The name Houshmandzadeh (in Persian characters ﻫﻮﺸﻤﻨﺪﺰﺍﺪﻩ) is a compound name meaning the "son (ﺰﺍﺪﻩ) of wisdom (ﻫﻮﺸﻤﻨﺪ)". He was a seventh-round pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Bengals.
