LOL how many mid round players do they expect to slide into the late rounds? How can you downgrade a team for taking players in the 6th round that were projected to go in the 6th round? News flash, most of those picks are for depth and/or special teams anyway so the teams dont expect them to come in and start. It feels like he was just looking for a team to put in his losers list and because he doesnt know who many of the late round prospects are, why not just put a random team and say their picks were all UDFA quality. I found a couple of sites that had all of the Cowboys prospects rated in the round they were taken so I dont know Walt gets this information of them being UD talents. Must be the same "sources" that told him the Rams wanted Wentz. Didn't take an NFL GM or scout to tell you that it was Goff all along
I think the Bears deserve to be considered a winner for day 2. Getting Cody Whitehair after trading down twice (although they did miss on Spriggs when the Packers traded up), getting 2 4th round picks to make up for the one they gave up to get Floyd, and then landing Bullard in round 3. PFF called those two picks the best picks in the entire draft, so I would say that was a decent haul for day 2.

By the way, the third-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
Duke (4-3) at Virginia (3-4) Line: Virginia by 7. Saturday, 3:30 ET
Virginia put a lot of effort into last week's Georgia Tech game. They tried their hardest and it was close for a while, but the Jackets eventually pulled away.
The Cavs are on an emotional low as a favorite over perennially crappy Duke. The Blue Devils have actually won two ACC games in a row, so they're playing with a ton of confidence. I like them to pull the upset.
Prediction: Duke 24, Virginia 20 Duke +7 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Central Michigan (7-1) at Boston College (5-3) Line: Boston College by 6. Saturday, 3:30 ET
A weird game for Boston College that doesn't mean anything. If they lose to Central Michigan, nothing really happens. This means much more to the visitor.
The Eagles were a huge underdog at Notre Dame last weekend. They put a ton of stock into that contest, but came up short. Now, they have to somehow summon the energy to get up for some MAC squad as a favorite. I don't see that happening.
Oh, and by the way, Central Michigan's a pretty good team.
Prediction: Central Michigan 31, Boston College 24 Central Michigan +6 (5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$550
Georgia (4-3) at Florida (7-0) Line: Florida by 15. Saturday, 3:30 ET at Jacksonville
Last year was an exception, but these teams usually play close. Double-digit underdogs almost always cover in this series.
Also, Florida isn't that good anymore. Ever since Tim Tebow suffered a concussion, the Gators have really struggled in the red zone.
South Carolina (6-2) at Tennessee (3-4) Line: Tennessee by 6. Saturday, 7:45 ET
The Vols put too much stock into that Alabama game. They probably would have missed the field goal at the end, but they never found out because the 800-pound defensive lineman on the Crimson Tide blocked the kick.
I don't think Tennessee will be able to get up for South Carolina as a home favorite. And speaking of the spread, this line is skewed too much based on what happened last weekend. The Vols should be -2 or -3 at the very most.
The Gamecocks thrive as underdogs. I think they win outright.
Prediction: South Carolina 24, Tennessee 10 South Carolina +6 (5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$550
