Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEMARCUS WALKER: Florida State, 6035 280 4.79. Three-year starter who plays in a 4-point stance. From Jacksonville, FL. Consensus All-America and ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Started 40 of 52 games over his four year career. Possesses both versatile skills and tools that can be used inside and outside. Walker has done most of his damage when starting between the tackles because of his explosive first step and powerful lower body. Has been among the Seminoles’ defensive line leaders in tackles and sacks since his freshman year. Plays with a flexible lower body and proper hand placement. Instinctive with a nose for the ball. Gravitates to the action. Plays with his motor wide open. Understands how to set up blockers then finish them off with an array of rush moves. Good lateral pursuit and downfield finish. Pro caliber technique. Doesn’t stay blocked. Uses a series of moves to penetrate and bring disruption to the backfield. Top tier quickness and agility. Played with a painful bone spur on his left foot that required surgery at the end of the season. Finished second in the nation with 16 sacks. His impact was felt both inside and outside, as the FSU coaching staff loved to move him around to exploit match-ups and use his high on-field IQ to disrupt the opposing offense. He may not have a true every down position, but in a scheme that likes to move guys around, his potential is sky high. May not thrive as well if someone puts him in one spot every down. 2016 stats: 68 T, 21.5 TFL, 16 sacks, 2 PBU, 4 QBH, 3 FF, 1 FR, 1 BK. Medical exclusion at Combine, left foot surgery. First/second round. (A-33, H-10 1/2, BP-18, 10-1.69).
