LOL how many mid round players do they expect to slide into the late rounds? How can you downgrade a team for taking players in the 6th round that were projected to go in the 6th round? News flash, most of those picks are for depth and/or special teams anyway so the teams dont expect them to come in and start. It feels like he was just looking for a team to put in his losers list and because he doesnt know who many of the late round prospects are, why not just put a random team and say their picks were all UDFA quality. I found a couple of sites that had all of the Cowboys prospects rated in the round they were taken so I dont know Walt gets this information of them being UD talents. Must be the same "sources" that told him the Rams wanted Wentz. Didn't take an NFL GM or scout to tell you that it was Goff all along
I think the Bears deserve to be considered a winner for day 2. Getting Cody Whitehair after trading down twice (although they did miss on Spriggs when the Packers traded up), getting 2 4th round picks to make up for the one they gave up to get Floyd, and then landing Bullard in round 3. PFF called those two picks the best picks in the entire draft, so I would say that was a decent haul for day 2.

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.
South Carolina at Vanderbilt Line: South Carolina by 6.5. Thursday, 7:00 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 one of those situations where the nationally televised road favorite is getting tons of action. In fact, South Carolina is getting twice as much money as any other team Thursday night. Vanderbilt is a live home dog with the superior quarterback.
College Football Pick: Vanderbilt +6.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Boise State at Michigan State Line: Michigan State by 7. Friday, 8:00 p.m.
Boise State has lost so many starters, including Kellen Moore. I feel like they're just touchdown underdogs based on name recognition. Michigan State is far superior.
College Football Pick: Michigan State -7 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Ohio at Penn State Line: Penn State by 6. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
This has an "us against the world" feel about it. The NCAA and media destroyed Penn State this offseason, so the remaining Nittany Lion players may want to prove that they're still a legitimate team with a big victory in this game.
College Football Pick: Penn State -6 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Florida International at Duke Line: Duke by 3.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
The better team is getting the points in this matchup. Florida International won eight games last season and returns most of its starters. Duke stinks, as always.
College Football Pick: Florida International +3.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Kentucky at Louisville Line: Louisville by 13.5. Sunday, 3:30 p.m.
Louisville is a good team, but this is a big rivalry, so I feel like the Cardinals are favored by too much, especially considering that Kentucky is coming out of the vastly superior conference. By the way, the underdog is 8-4 against the spread in this series since 2000.
