- Strong Hands
- Ability to move to Interior DL
- Lacks elite athleticism
- Can he stand-up?
- Backside pursuit
I believe DeMarcus Walker can be a solid starter in a 4-3 defense as a LDE with the ability to move inside on obvious passing situations. Has the ability to be a 7-10 sack/per player in the NFL.
