Funny. Clearly your not a Cowboy fan so it clouds your thoughts. Pretty hard to determine a players potential before they take a snap in the NFL. With that its pretty strong to say they blew the pick. If in the next few years Elliott is a top 5 RB and returns the offense to 2014 form its hardly blowing it. Ramsey looks to be a great player too. But Dallas needed to put a top RB behind that OL before contracts split it up as much as a top DB. The RB helps crown the OL, reduces the QB hits and frees up the passing game. Ramsey may not have as big an impact in Jacksonville as Elliott will have in Dallas. We will see.........

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.
Purdue (4-2) at Ohio State (6-1) Line: Ohio State by 24. Saturday, 12:00 ET
Wisconsin just beat up Ohio State. The Buckeyes' national title hopes are over, and they have nothing to play for. Purdue, meanwhile, has won two in a row. This is the biggest game of the Boilermakers' season, and I expect them to cover.
Arizona State (3-3) at California (3-3) Line: California by 3. Saturday, 3:30 ET
This is a tough spot for Cal. They're coming off a tough loss to USC and could be flat against an Arizona State squad that has had two weeks to prepare for this contest.
Prediction: Arizona State 27, California 21 Arizona State +3 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Oklahoma (6-0) at Missouri (6-0) Line: Oklahoma by 3. Saturday, 8:00 ET
Can someone tell me why Oklahoma is first in the BCS poll? Didn't they nearly lose to Cincinnati and Air Force? The Sooners are a bit of a fraud, and I think they'll get hammered at Missouri this Saturday. The Tigers are coming off a win on the road and are now underdogs under the lights with the Game Day crew on site. That's usually a recipe for success.
