Funny. Clearly your not a Cowboy fan so it clouds your thoughts. Pretty hard to determine a players potential before they take a snap in the NFL. With that its pretty strong to say they blew the pick. If in the next few years Elliott is a top 5 RB and returns the offense to 2014 form its hardly blowing it. Ramsey looks to be a great player too. But Dallas needed to put a top RB behind that OL before contracts split it up as much as a top DB. The RB helps crown the OL, reduces the QB hits and frees up the passing game. Ramsey may not have as big an impact in Jacksonville as Elliott will have in Dallas. We will see.........

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
