Georgia Bulldogs Insider Breaks Down Jaguars No. 1 Pick Travon Walker

+

There is a new No. 1 overall pick in town: Georgia pass-rusher Travon Walker, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the top pick in this year's draft after leaping boards over the last several months. But who exactly is Walker? What will the versatile defensive lineman bring to the Jaguars' roster and defense after three impactful years at Georgia? Including a year as a key starter on the national championship squad last season, Walker has shown a lot on tape -- even if he isn't yet a finished product. In 2020, Walker played in nine games and recorded 1.0 sack, 2.0 tackles for loss, one interception, and one forced fumble. Walker then had a career season in 2021, starting all 15 games as Georgia finished the year as National Champions. During Georgia's title run, Walker recorded 6.0 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss, two pass deflections, one fumble recovery, and a team-high 36 quarterback hurries.
