It didn’t take long for Jacksonville Jaguars forward Travon Walker, the first pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, to make an impact in the NFL. During the first game of scrimmage in the Hall of Fame game, Walker blasted right past Las Vegas Raiders left tackle Brandon Parker to put pressure on quarterback Jarret Stidham. It was a great run, albeit with an obligatory free kick from the passer, because…well, we don’t know why anymore. We rarely.
With 5:48 left in the first quarter, Walker put Parker back on the skates and got Stidham for his first NFL sack. And this time there was no penalty!
Some felt that Walker was the athletic reach that the Jaguars had taken him to. More than a quick look at his record in Georgia will tell you otherwise, and he’s definitely doing it as fast as he can in his first game.
