Overview:

Walker was highly productive at FSU, posting 179 tackles, a whopping 41.5 for loss, and 27.0 sacks. He has great size, is a great pass rusher, gets good pressure on the QB, is a hard hitter, and has good instincts. He also does a really good job of batting rhe ball down at the line of scrimmage, along with bull rushing his way through the line to get to the QB. He does not have the best speed, and he gets tanged with big lineman at the line of scrimmage at times. I expect Walker to be a day 3 pick, likely in the mid round area.
