You show your lack of knowledge by suggesting the Vikings need to upgrade at Safety next to Harrison Smith. Not only do they not need to upgrade at safety with Sendejo having another good season and emerging as an extremely capable counterpart to Smith in Mike Zimmer's defense, but you completely overlook the Vikings biggest need. And that has been evident from day 1! Offensive tackle. Not only will they take an offensive tackle with their first pick, they might try to trade up into the first round (if possible to get the OT they want. In fact, their need is so dire up front at tackle, it's possible they could take multiple OTs with their first few picks.
Hey Walt, love the site, but noticed you never did a disaster rating for Reshad Jones injury. Was wondering your opinion of that. Also, I'm sure you'll hear of this soon, but Arian Foster also just retired.

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.
UAB at Ohio State Line: Ohio State by 36.5. 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.
Urban Meyer loves to run up the score against inferior competition. UAB is, without a doubt, inferior competition. I don't see how this one stays close.
College Football Pick: Ohio State -36.5 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Wyoming at Idaho Line: Idaho by 2. Saturday, 5:00 p.m.
Idaho is coming off a tough loss, so I don't see it being fully up for Wyoming. The Vandals put way too much stock into that LSU game.
College Football Pick: Wyoming +2 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Southern Alabama at Mississippi State Line: Mississippi State by 34. Saturday, 7:00 p.m.
This is another game in which the home favorite should take care of business. I don't see how Southern Alabama can be competitive with the Bulldogs.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State -34 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
San Jose State at San Diego State Line: San Diego State by 3. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
The wrong team is favored. San Jose State nearly upset Stanford in the opener and then demolished two other teams after that.
College Football Pick: San Jose State +3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
Kansas State at Oklahoma Line: Oklahoma by 14. Saturday, 7:50 p.m.
What's with this start time? 7:50? What the hell is that? At any rate, I like good teams going into the bye because they tend to be focused.
College Football Pick: Oklahoma -14 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
