Earthlings…I bet you were wondering about me…even afraid…
“What is Wedge up to?” You mumbled to yourself. Is the Earth safe?
Well rest assured Earthlings. You are still very much a target of mine.
I’ve been watching you since the NFL draft last April…
And you know what, I’m still not impressed! Why does your pathetic species deserve to survive? With a simple push of the button I can destroy your entire species!
If I am creative enough about it, I might even get a promotion
So be very afraid…
But Earthlings here is the thing…
I really enjoyed watching the Dolphins make a playoff run in 2016
It didn’t last long once we got there…but next thing I know – it’s January and the draft is just a few months away. And this year there are some exciting prospects which has me thinking less about the destruction of your planet.
Like Anthony Walker, Jr. from Northwestern
Walker is a 6’1, 235 Junior linebacker out of Northwestern. I love his story!
Walker is not some blockhead linebacker who throws his fragile Earth head into the ball carrier to bring him down. Northwestern isn’t known to produce a lot of NFL stars, rather the school is known for its academic standing. Walker fit right in when he was there.
He actually graduated from Monsignor Pace High School in Miami Gardens with a 4.7 grade point average. While at Monsignor Pace his father was his coach and teacher…he has a close relationship with his father today and boasts about calling him everyday while at Northwestern…sort of sweet isn’t it…maybe Earth is worth sparing?
Ah Yes Football….
Walker’s most impressive year was 2015 when he tallied 120 total tackles, 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and an interception. In one game vs Duke, he recorded 19 tackles. Walker actually had 6 double digit tackle days in 2015.
Walker finished his career at Northwestern with 276 tackles in three years including over 60 solo tackles in each of the last two years. He all had four interceptions, six forced fumbles and 7.5 sacks in that time.
On December 30, 2016 Walker announced his decision to enter the NFL Draft, in doing so he became the first Northwestern player to declare early for the NFL draft since 1996.
While he played Mike Linebacker at Northwestern, some scouts think he projects better outside in a 4-3 defense mainly because his size might be a detriment in the middle or in a 3-4 scheme.
Walker is an instinctive and cerebral linebacker who grew up on football. He has an excellent work ethic and clearly loves the game.
If I were going to compare Anthony Walker, Jr. to a alien weapon of destruction, I would go with the Smart Self Operable Lunar Jack Hammer. I use it to chisel into a planet’s core when I want to cause a divesting earthquake.
