Chicago Bears Roster Ranking: 75-71
74. Cavon Walker
Cavon Walker is an interesting to name to keep an eye on. A priority UDFA from Maryland, Walker is going to take some snaps on the edge in training camp. Knowing where the position on the Bears roster it would be great to find a sleeper to step up for rotational snaps. Could that be Walker?
It may not be this season. Walker is a bit of a project. Walker was an off of the ball linebacker. However, after a foot injury, he put on a lot of upper body muscle. At Maryland, they moved him to the defensive line where he moved up and down the line.
He spent some time on the edge at Maryland, but he is still extremely raw in this regard. The best bet for him is to likely take a year and refine the position. Still, we are talking about a player with footwork and instincts of a linebacker, but power of a defensive lineman. These are things to work with.
