@coords The next 5 players in my mock after the Kings pick are all big men. I just think at that juncture in the first, that all the best players available are big men. If Jaylen Brown falls to them, I believe he is the pick. I think Ellenson fits the best out of all those big men, and gives the Kings a stretch big that they lack.

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
