2022 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #1

Return to Mock Draft

Travon Walker



Rumors swirled over this pick for the last few days. GM Trent Baalke preferred Walker, while HC Doug Caldwell wanted Ikem Ekwonu to beef up the Lawrence fortress. In the end Baalke wins. Selecting Walker is not without merit, although listed as an edge defender, he can be depolyed all over the line. In a conference that features the two biggest RB studs in the NFL in Derrick Henry and Jonathan Taylor, stopping the running games of those teams can bear fruit.

If developed properly, athletic freak Walker can become perrenial all-pro.

Grade: B (The only A grade would involve a trade down)
