2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: J.D. Walton

  • Strong, compact frame
  • Very powerful run blocker
  • Does a good job staying low generating leverage
  • Nasty, blue-collar demeanor
  • Athletic enough to pull or get to second level
  • Possesses heavy hands
  • Good quickness and flexibility in space
  • Nice footwork
  • Great intangibles and a big-time leader for the Baylor offensive line
  • 3-year starter
  • Solid awareness
  • Finishes blocks
  • Tough

  • Average size
  • A bit too high at times in pass protection
  • Lacks elite athleticism to be upper-echelon center in NFL
  • No experience in man-blocking scheme
  • Sometimes lunges and will get top heavy

    Summary: Walton is a very good center prospect with the top intangibles you want as a line general at the position. Despite being only 300 pounds, he should hold his own against 3-4 nose tackles because he stays low, is strong, and is very tough. He doesn't have the upside of a Maurkice Pouncey, but he should be a starter early in his career and come off the board in the third round.

    Player Comparison: Shaun O'Hara. O'Hara doesn't have amazing physical tools, but he is a tough line general for the Giants.
