The Kansas State defense has produced its share of talent over the years. Defensive end Reggie Walker is another talented Wildcat that Kansas State has produced. Walker is someone that has the potential to improve his draft stock over the next few weeks. He has been a solid player but still has some work left to do.
Walker has good strength for the defensive end position. Walker is excellent in sniffing out the run and disrupting the running game. Walker displays good speed when it comes to rushing and harassing the passer. Walker rarely misses a tackle and is very consistent when it comes to bringing down the ball carrier. Reggie does not attempt to shoulder tackle he wraps and drives the ball carrier down.
Walker does need to develop more pass rushing moves to defeat blockers. I would like to see his effort become more consistent. Walker has a tendency to take some plays off and not pursue the ball carrier. Improving those areas will improve his chances on being drafted over the NFL draft weekend.
The draft projection that I have on Walker is of a sixth-round selection with the possibility of dropping into the seventh-round. He will need to have impressive performances at the combine and at his pro day to improve his draft chances.
