Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.

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.
Syracuse (3-5) at Pittsburgh (7-1) Line: Pittsburgh by 21.5. Saturday, 12:00 ET
It's time for my crappy college picks! Don't waste time with stocks, bonds and IRAs! Just fade my college picks and send your kids to college with the money you can win!
Pittsburgh should destroy Syracuse. The Panthers are playing really well right now.
Duke (5-3) at North Carolina (5-3) Line: North Carolina by 10. Saturday, 3:30 ET
I'm loving Duke right now. The Blue Devils have won three in a row and have a lot of confidence going into this game against a very flawed North Carolina squad. You'd think Butch Davis could find a quarterback who could complete a forward pass.
Prediction: Duke 20, North Carolina 17 Duke +10 (5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$550
Oregon (7-1) at Stanford (5-3) Line: Oregon by 7. Saturday, 3:30 ET
Oregon is a machine. As solid as Stanford is, I can't see Harbaugh's Heroes stopping them.
