The selection of Walker marks the second time in two years that the Jaguars have picked at the top of the draft — remember, Jacksonville took Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence #1 in 2021.
Walker, meanwhile, is expected to be getting after quarterbacks right away in Duval. The guy was a star for the Bulldogs in his three seasons in Athens, recording 61 total tackles, 9.5 sacks, 1 interception and 1 forced fumble in his career.
He also helped UGA beat Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide in January’s National Championship … registering three total tackles and one sack in the game.
Doug Pederson and Jaguars fans everywhere are certainly hoping that kind of production continues in Florida in 2022.
