Overview:

Walker is a bit unproven, only playing 24 career games, with just 53 tackles, 13.0 for loss, and 6.5 sacks. He has great size though, along with getting a good push on the offensive line, he is a hard hitting defensive tackle, and he gets good pressure on the quarterback. He also bull rushes his way through the offensive line with ease. And he is a solid tackler. He is also not known for getting many sacks, and he does not have the best speed, but that does not hurt his game. I expect Walker to be a late day 2, to early day 3 pick, likely ending up being picked in the late 3rd round, or early 4th round area when it is all said and done.
