Oakland will either draft Donald Penn's replacement at LT, draft a cornerback, or an inside linebacker with their first pick. Those three priorities are above drafting a running back considering Oakland already drafted a running back this year. And Latavius Murray is just fine
I think they could have drafted quite a bit better. Maybe looked @ Thompson from BSU at safety. I think anyone that passed on Booker missed a chance on a RB talent steal. Alexander was rated higher than drafted, but guard seems to have a low value on a lot of teams. Cook being drafted wasn`t a horrible pick in terms of the position & need. I just think they should have waited 1 year to grab a QB prospect. I hope Cook works out, but you could almost drop each player by one round for a better value. Joseph was going late 2nd round to many scouts. The way WAS drafted I don`t think they would have taken him @ pick 22.

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.
Lousiana-Lafayette at Oklahoma State Line: Oklahoma State by 22.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games (at least I used to be); I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Louisiana-Lafayette is a pretty good team. I think this spread is way too high. They'll be competitive with Oklahoma State.
College Football Pick: Louisiana-Lafayette +22.5 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$330
Virginia Tech at Pittsburgh Line: Virginia Tech by 10. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
This line screams trap to me, but then again, so did last week's small spread in the Cincinnati-Pittsburgh game. The Panthers are terrible.
College Football Pick: Virginia Tech -10 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Boston College at Northwestern Line: Northwestern by 3.5. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
Don't mind me, just fading a crappy Big Ten team.
College Football Pick: Boston College +3.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Arizona State at Missouri Line: Missouri by 6.5. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
Missouri is coming off a tough game and may not be entirely focused for an Arizona State squad that is better than most people think. Great spot for the Sun Devils.
College Football Pick: Arizona State +6.5 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Utah State at Wisconsin Line: Wisconsin by 13. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Another Big Ten fade. Utah State has a tough defense, so this should be a low-scoring affair.
College Football Pick: Utah State +13 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
