Jaguar defensive end Travon WalkerThe first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, it didn’t take long for his presence to be felt in his preseason debut.
Walker had a first-quarter sack against the Flyers in the Hall of Fame game, and promised to make that kind of impact for a long time after that.
“I hadn’t hit an opponent in a while,” Walker said. “It was definitely a fun feeling. It was my first, but more to come.
It may only be the preseason, but Walker is excited to be there.
“It was exciting to be on a real NFL roster playing for an NFL team against other NFL players,” Walker said.
Jaguar head coach Doug Pederson He liked what he saw of Walker.
“I thought it was good. I think I saw it, felt it, could see the length, the athleticism, the power. He’s going to be a good player,” Pederson said.
The Jaguars haven’t had many reasons for optimism in recent years, but Walker provides one.
