2022 NFL DRAFT: KENNETH WALKER III

By Brandon Lane

Michigan State (JR), RB

Walker presents as a workhorse back who can carry the load. After having a solid two seasons with Wake Forest from 2019 to 2020 he chose to transfer to Michigan State his Junior year. The move proved to be exactly what this star needed to shine. He rushed 263 times for 1,636 yards and 18 touchdowns while adding 13/89/1 through the air. Walker’s success was awarded by winning the Walter Camp Player of the Year and Doak Walker award. And, as if that wasn't enough, he received first-team Associated Press All-American and Big Ten Running Back of the Year honors. We have this exciting young prospect as the second running back off the board in this years draft.

Pluses:
• SPEED, 4.38 40-yard dash
• Tackle breaking powerhouse
• A patient runner who finds the hole and hits it
• Great ball-handling skills (only one fumble in 2021)

Concerns:
• Questionable receiving skills (only 19 receptions in three years)
• Pass protection issues
