Strong Points

Has good bulk, strength and power. Good hand use, doesn't stay blocked long. Makes some outstanding plays that very few can make. He plays the run well and is a good inside pass rusher. Flashes some special.

Weak Points

Only played four games in 2016. Missed games because of a concussion then quit the team to "get ready for the NFL" when he was cleared to play. His Combine workout wasn't as good as expected. Has been an up and down player. When he wants to play, he's great. When he doesn't, he looks average. Can he be trusted not to quit again?

The Way We See It

There is no question Walker has very good talent. The questions are about the effects of the concussion and the fact that he quit on his team. The concussions are a medical concern and the doctors will answer those. Quitting doesn't sit well with coaches, regardless of talent. Each club will have their own opinion. He is a second- to third-round talent based on tape but he may get drafted much later.
