4. ILB Quay Walker
It doesn’t matter how many games Quay Walker starts in his rookie season, he will be a key contributor regardless.
The Packers often line up with just one inside linebacker on the field, but that is likely in part due to the fact they haven’t had great depth at the position. Now they do. The Packers picked Walker 22nd overall in April’s draft, and that wasn’t so he could sit on the bench.
Walker drew comparisons to Packers All-Pro inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell before the draft, and he will now get to learn from him each day at practice.
And so far, the first-round pick is off to a good start.
Like Devonte Wyatt, Walker comes from a dominant Georgia defense, so he will be about as prepared for the NFL as is possible.
With speed, athleticism, and the ability to play on all three downs, Walker can instantly become a difference maker in Green Bay’s defense.
He may even be the most exciting player to watch at training camp. He will likely make a number of impressive plays on the practice field, and it will be interesting to see how Joe Barry uses him.
Walker was the Packers’ top draft pick, so he deserves to be near the top of the list.
