Overview:

Walton finished his career at Miami(Fla.), where he played in 31 career games, had 395 rushes, for 2006 rushing yards, 26 rushing touchdowns, he also had 56 receptions, for 624 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He has good speed, he has good vision, he is a tough runner, and a very patient back. He makes defenders miss with ease, he breaks tackles, and is tough to bring down. He is an offensive play maker, and a dynamic play maker. He is also a good pass catching back, a good blocking back, and has good instincts. He also was a workhorse back for the Hurricanes, and he has the patience to wait for hopes to open, and attack them. On the other hand, he is a bit on the small side, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Walton as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
