ok, wtf? TWO Edge-rushers for the Redskins? Do you even know who is on the Redskins' roster? I was gonna comment after the first one, but decided not to. However, A SECOND EDGE-RUSHER? Preston Smith is quite good and only 23. The Redskins signed Kerrigan to a big contract extension. Clearly the top two spots are on lockdown. Question mark: Junior Galette. Can he return from a second torn achilles and provide a spark at DPR? We'll see, but he's more than just a journeyman edge rusher. Now, would it be nice to have some more depth? Sure, but that doesn't mean the Redskins should bypass their glaring needs at LG, C, and DL, GLARING needs, just to get DEPTH. Not a starter, but DEPTH. Safety, ILB, and RB. Just some more positions of need for you.

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
