While Travon Walker was at Georgia, he was able to play multiple positions. He was not mentioned as a possible first-round pick in the NFL draft. The Jaguars made him an elite producer for their defensive scheme and decided to make him that.

Mike Caldwell, Jaguars defensive coordinator, said Walker could be a great outside linebacker.

Caldwell stated that “I believe his best position is outside-linebacker” via the Florida Times-Union. “That’s a very important position in defense. While he can play many positions, his favorite is outside linebacker. We see him as a force there. We will try to mold him, and let him fly and take control.”

Caldwell pointed out that Walker is large enough to have played defensive tackle in college, but fast enough for him to be able play linebacker.

Caldwell stated, “You can think about his size, his weight and his speed. It’s almost like a unicorn.” He is unique. You can see that he plays this way on tape. You can see his burst, speed, and the moves. We are thrilled for him and believe he will be ready to roll.

Jaguars need a major talent boost.
