At first glance you would consider Walker to be a dual-threat prospect ideal for the spread offense, but he is more versatile and well-rounded than just an athlete playing QB. He has adequate size and a solid build– much like a wide receiver. He does not play in a spread scheme where he is in the shotgun all the time and it is nice to see a prospect still have to drop from center and work throw the passing game progressions in his drops. Shows good overall arm strength, puts nice velocity on downfield passes and is a pretty accurate guy. Possesses enough size to scan the field from within the pocket. Shows nice touch on the deep ball and has shown the ability to drop the ball in over coverage down the sideline. Is a solid ball handler on play action and carries out fakes well. Release is quick, compact and over-the-top. He is mobile and throws well on the run. Has adequate foot speed and can buy time in the pocket. Is an effective scrambler that flashes the ability to make the first defender miss, has adequate top-end speed and strong enough to pick up yards after contact. Walker isn’t going to be a dominant prospect right off the bat as an athlete or passer, but he has tools to develop and become a prospect that could become productive in a variety of schemes and also threaten defenses with his legs.
