if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

By the way, the fourth-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.
LSU at Mississippi State Line: LSU by 3.5. Thursday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
This is a WalterFootball.com special. I love this situation. You have a home underdog under the weeknight lights where the public is pounding the visitor despite the fact that the spread is moving toward the host's direction. This is a huge game for Mississippi State. I think they win.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State +3.5 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Auburn at Clemson Line: Clemson by 3.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
I really have to wonder why Clemson is favored in this game. Auburn had a stinker in the opener, so that makes me think that's playing into this line. I don't think that should matter at all; War Eagle had a nice rebound performance last week against Mississippi State. They're the better of the two Tiger teams.
College Football Pick: Auburn +3.5 (3 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$330
Duke at Boston College Line: Boston College by 7. Saturday, 12:30 p.m.
I can't believe I'm picking Duke, but Boston College is complete garbage. At least the Blue Devils are a fuctional team. The Eagles are even worse.
College Football Pick: Duke +7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Syracuse at USC Line: USC by 16.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Hey, at least this time USC can't push the spread 30 minutes after blocking a game-winning field goal and return it for a non-touchdown. I'm going against the Trojans again. They're really overrated.
College Football Pick: Syracuse +16.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Stanford at Arizona Line: Stanford by 10. Saturday, 10:45 p.m.
Nick Foles looks lost without his star receiver, Juron Criner. It doesn't look like Criner will play in this game, and even if he does, he won't be 100 percent. This Stanford team is on a mission, and the Wildcats don't have what it takes to stop them.
College Football Pick: Stanford -10 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
