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.
Akron at Ohio Line: Ohio by 20.5. Saturday, 2:00 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.
This line is inflated because Ohio is unbeaten. With all of the talk of an undefeated season, the Bobcats could be nervous and choke away a game. It may not be this one, but it'll be close. Akron has just one victory, but they play teams pretty tightly. They lost at Tennessee by only 21, and I'd say the Vols are better than the Bobcats.
College Football Pick: Akron +20.5 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Oregon State at BYU Line: BYU by 6. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
I don't quite get this line. BYU is not very good. No one respects Oregon State.
College Football Pick: Oregon State +6 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
Texas-San Antonio at Rice Line: Rice by 3. Saturday, 3:30 p.m.
People haven't caught on to Texas-San Antonio yet. They've blown out every team they've played recently. They shouldn't have a problem with Rice.
College Football Pick: Texas-San Antonio +3 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Boston College at Florida State Line: Florida State by 27.5. Saturday, 5:00 p.m.
The Seminoles no longer have a chance to win the national title, so they're going to be reeling off that loss to N.C. State. Boston College, meanwhile, hasn't lost by more than 14 to anyone all year.
College Football Pick: Boston College +27.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
South Carolina at LSU Line: LSU by 3. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
I picked against LSU last week because I believed they were overrated. It still seems like that's the case. The wrong team is favored in this matchup. And no, I don't expect the Tigers to rebound; in fact, I think they'll be flat because their national title dreams are down the toilet.
College Football Pick: South Carolina +3 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
