    Shows great hand usage, which is critical because he's undersized. He can beat offensive tackles with his strength -- he gave Alabama's Jonah Williams one of his toughest tests of the season -- and can dominate tight ends assigned to block him. Walker shows a great motor and has the athleticism to drop into coverage. Can he add weight and still be effective? That's the question some NFL teams have.

    ====

    A four-year contributor, Walker didn't start until his final season at Georgia but displayed steady growth throughout his career. A versatile prospect, Walker has the upside to work as a 3-4 outside linebacker and play defensive end in even fronts. While he is most polished currently as a run defender, Walker has the tools to develop into a productive pass rusher. In order for him to reach his ceiling rushing the passer in the NFL, fixing his stance and developing his hand usage is critical. Likely a sub-package player initially, Walker has the traits to become a starter by year three with continued growth.

    ====

    Plays with great leverage and arm extension to set a consistently firm edge against the run. Capable of squeezing down gapes and eliminating space for backs to run through. Anchor is stout. Effective working from a standup role and with his hand in the dirt. Processes play design quickly and maintains his fits. Effective in backside pursuit working down the line of scrimmage.
