I like this one. I think I got good value. Little heavy on edge but perhaps we eliminate the need for a bit. Would have liked an ILB and a CB but value was never there. That is what FA is for, I used the fanspeak draft generator with the CBS prospect order and fanspeak needs assesment

While Imnot sure on what to think of Anderson...Njoku/Walker/Goodwin are all awesome values.

I think Walker only a tic or so behind Allen who everyone sees going top 15.

Walker is not an EDGE player in the NFL. He looks way better inside as a 3 tech. He might also play RDE

Disagree. I know some of the "experts" are trying to peg him as that. I see him as scheme versatile and even position versatile depending on how he wants to develop himself. He has the size, power, length, and technique to get to the QB from the EDGE in either scheme imo.

I don't see Walker as an Edge player either, at least not a good one. I actually think he'd make a better 3-technique if I'm being honest.

He'd be a little bit of a project at 34 OLB. He'd have to lean down a bit and get stronger. I can see him bulking up and being a 3 Tech also.

I liked the way this draft fell to me. FA still needed but that is life. Keep drafting like this and FA becomes less important down the road

I agree.

Heres what i had written in my notes.

Strengths: Has good ball awareness. Can be a nasty tackler. Has a lot of power in arms and upper body. Uses swim technique well especially vs OG's.

Weaknesses: Motor. Will be interesting to see if arms are long enough to play outside vs OT's may have to be an undersized 3 Tech. Is not explosive.

Had a big game statistically vs Ole Miss. ...think it was against a true freshman or something as I recall
