Walker's college career has been one of vast improvement, culminating with an assortment of personal bests last year, including tackles (58), tackles for loss (15.5), sacks (10.5) and forced fumbles (4). What did all that mean to the Seminoles? He was named FSU's co-defensive MVP along with the No. 5 pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Jalen Ramsey. NFL scouts will want to see more consistency from him in the area of run stopping.
