Diamond Report

Overview

Walters  has overcome adversity on & off the ball field.

Formally a highly recruited star to Mizz as a rookie sky was the limit for this athletic tough back as a rookie. As he looked to expand his role as a Sophomore Walters was involved in possessing a credit card device & was let go by Mizz before what was supposed to be Walters breakout season.  After the dust settled he wound up at Alabama A&M with a struggling small school team. Then after he got transferred he had a season-ending ACL injury in 2016 season then in 2017 he was part of a not very good AAM program. Still managed 408 yds on the ground in limited play.  Walters managed to maintain straight A’s three years in a row after the incident. Then finally after so much adversity & circumstance Walters was able to persevere having a breakout season this past year in 2018 Avg an impressive 6.3 ypc 661 yd’s & 7 TD’s while having a couple 150 plus yd games showing the potential of this talented prospect.

In the Run Game

Built well low center of gravity, power & insane breakaway speed Walters is a back that can pound the rock between the tackles or burn right past defenders.  Patient runner waits for blocks to materialize weaves his way around blocks with agility constant acceleration. Good bend & burst off the snap. Outstanding, long speed, that doesn’t seem to lose any momentum as he flies past or bounces off defenders seamlessly. Cutting thru gaps & stiff arming or running over players for the extra yard or two. Downhill Thumper that has enough speed to bounce to the outside on sweep or off tackle runs. Keeps good pad level, ducking behind O lineman emerging thru holes on fire. Once Walters gets to the 2nd or 3rd level of a D he is as good as gone. Technically sound big body back with good knee bend short burst long speed to take it to the house.  

In the Pass Game, Blocking & ST

Not used a ton in the passin game as AAM used many different guys in that role of out the backfield or short yardage receiver. The little I see I think he can be a special threat in the aspect. Stout 5’10 225 lb frame puts him at a good size to be effective in the pass block game. He could be a good fast big back to have on special teams coverage or return teams. Leaves much to be desired I would have to see much more of this to make a true evaluation in the passing game. Although I have seen him block believe he can be

Summary

Walters went from a  “ complementary role in 2017 to win the starting role this past season. As part of a great backfield that also included JR standout, Jordan Bentley. He has worked his way back both on & off the field. Walters made the most of opportunities, limited at times. Alabama A&M is known to use a lot of the roster. Which has seem to work quite well this past year. Even using multiple QB’s in games which seems counterproductive to me but they where a winning program.  Walters had some nice games as a starter and showed what he really can do. Any issues off the field seem to be many years in the past. If he can stay humble keep working hard keep his head in the game of football. Think Trevon Walters can be an exciting powerful yet elusive back. Has the right frame dynamite open field explosiveness. Optimal vision to see 2-3 steps ahead the patience to wait for blocks to open up.  Quickness agility to suceed in the pass game power to get the score in goal line situations. A true sleeper cause the program really just started to gain success this past season. Tough runner from a tough running team he can fit so many backfields with his versatility. Whether he is a situational back or gets a heavy workload think Trevon Walters is a name to watch going into draft season 2019.
