At some points, it was [frustrating]. But I just used that as an edge for me. They were overwhelmed by my size and my ability to move the way I can,” Walker said after the Ravens drafted him, according to Ryan Mink of the team’s official website. “I just kept faith that I’d be somewhere and I ended up at the place where the most interest was there.”
