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.
UCLA at Arizona Line: Arizona by 4.5. Thursday, 9:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (though not this year); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
I think it's ridiculous that Arizona is favored. This team has dropped five games in a row. They have no right to be laying points against a competent team.
College Football Pick: UCLA +4.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Oregon at Colorado Line: Oregon by 30.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I'm taking a bunch of heavy favorites this week, including Oregon. Colorado is complete garbage. The Ducks are looking like they're about to get on a roll, so I think they should be able to cover this spread pretty easily.
College Football Pick: Oregon -30.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Air Force at Boise State Line: Boise State by 31. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Another large favorite. The Broncos are getting screwed over by the stupid NCAA again, so they need to impress the computers and voters. They're going to demolish Air Force.
College Football Pick: Boise State -31 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Tennessee at Alabama Line: Alabama by 28.5. Saturday, 7:15 p.m.
Alabama's my favorite play of the week. Nick Saban has sand in his vag right now, so he's definitely going to make sure that his team destroys Tennessee. The Crimson Tide is on a roll, and I think this spread is about 15 points too short.
College Football Pick: Alabama -28.5 (5 Units) -- Correct; +$500
Texas Tech at Oklahoma Line: Oklahoma by 29. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Same story - the Sooners need to impress the computers and pollsters against a crappy conference opponent. This has blowout written all over it.
College Football Pick: Oklahoma -29 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
