He primarily helped out on the Raven’s special teams squad. Walker picked off quarterbacks nine times during his 4 seasons at TSU.
“It was just a learning step for me,” Walker said of his rookie season, per Zrebiec. “There was a lot for me to learn and accomplish throughout the season, adjusting to the length of the season as well as studying the game. 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.”
Gone too soon. RIP
