After the craziness of Round 1 on Thursday night, the NFL Draft rolls on with Rounds 2-3 on Friday night at 6 p.m. CST/7 p.m. EST. Northwestern fans should look out for Anthony Walker Jr., who has been projected as a third or fourth round pick.
Walker Jr. was a star linebacker for Northwestern for three years before declaring early and entering the NFL Draft. He impressed scouts with his closing speed and natural instincts on the field. Will Ragatz’s exhaustive scouting report thinks Walker Jr. could make it as a starter in the NFL someday.
While Walker Jr. is the only Wildcat projected in the third round, there are plenty of reasons to watch the second and third rounds if you have any interest in the NFL, obviously. As for Walker Jr.’s teammates, Ifeadi Odenigbo, Joseph Jones, and Austin Carr could all go in the later rounds on Saturday.
