if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

By the way, the third-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.
East Carolina (2-0) at Virginia Tech (0-2) Line: Virginia Tech by 19.5. Saturday, 1:30 ET
I don't like much this week, but this is my favorite game. With Virginia Tech losing to James Madison, everyone is all over East Carolina and the massive amount of points they're getting. Let's not forget that the Hokies nearly beat Boise State two weeks ago. They didn't prepare at all for James Madison, but they'll be out for blood in this game after getting trashed all week.
Prediction: Virginia Tech 34, East Carolina 6 Virginia Tech -19.5 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400
Central Michigan (1-1) at Eastern Michigan (0-2) Line: Central Michigan by 10. Saturday, 4:00 ET
This is set up for major MAC point shaving, but I like Eastern Michigan regardless. They've covered both their games this year, and always seem to play Central Michigan close at home.
Boise State (1-0) at Wyoming (1-1) Line: Boise State by 23. Saturday, 8:00 ET
Laying 20-plus on the road usually isn't my thing, but like I said, I don't like much this week so I'll have to make an exception. Boise State just watched Virginia Tech go down to James Madison, so they know they have to kick the crap out of everyone they play to be eligible for the final postseason exhibition contest.
Prediction: Boise State 45, Wyoming 7 Boise State -23 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100
New Mexico State (0-1) at UTEP (1-1) Line: UTEP by 15. Saturday, 9:00 ET
UTEP isn't very good and doesn't deserve to be favored by 15. Plus, they're coming off a tough loss to Houston, so they may not be up for playing New Mexico State.
Prediction: UTEP 24, New Mexico State 14 New Mexico State +15 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$220
Houston (2-0) at UCLA (0-2) Line: Houston by 3. Saturday, 10:30 ET
UCLA is garbage, as they just lost to Stanford at home, 35-0. Houston should be able to come close to duplicating that result.
