Bio: 
Four-year starter who led Louisiana-Lafayette in interceptions in 2016 and 2017. Earned Third Team All-Sun Belt honors and led the team with 97 tackles (3.5 for loss) while adding two interceptions and six pass breakups as a senior. Recorded 61 tackles, three interceptions and three PBUs as a junior. Made 74 tackles (five for loss) with one interception, one forced fumble and six pass breakups in 2015. Started eight games as a redshirt freshman and posted 43 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble and three PBUs.
Pos: 
Nice-sized safety with next-level athleticism. Smooth, moves fluidly in every direction of the field and looks the part. Tracks the pass in the air, nicely redirects and adjusts to the action and wraps up ball carriers. Fluid in lateral pursuit, covers a lot of area and shows a burst to the ball. Makes a lot of athletic plays. Shows good recognition in coverage.
Neg: 
Inefficient and does not always take proper angles to the action. Doesn’t always play with a sense of urgency or play with physicality. Displays average quickness.
Analysis: 
Walker was highly rated coming into the season and played reasonably well as a senior. He possesses the physical skills to play on Sundays but must elevate his intensity to have a career at the next level.
