Anthony Walker Jr. (6-1, 207) OLB

Walker, like his classmate Brett Walsh, has great speed for the linebacker position. He does a good job of reading and reacting to the play and uses his speed to close in quickly on the ball carrier. His best asset might be covering running backs out of the backfield because of his speed. Walker also possesses good hands because he played receiver in high school as well. He will need to bulk up in order to play well against the run. He’s worth keeping an eye out for because he could be very effective as a nickel linebacker in coverage.
