Updated on 7/31/21.  Written by Alan Lu.
2021 rankings were finalized on 7/29/21.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 222
College: Florida State
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 3/28/1998

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:
Decent shooter
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring off-ball motion plays
Very good free throw shooter
Decent playmaker
Decent defender
Solid athlete
Rock solid motor

Cons:
Inconsistent shooter
Can display spotty shot selection
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone
Needs to improve his rebounding
May struggle to guard quicker players
Can be foul prone
Can be too inconsistent in games

Summary:
He is a tough, physical swingman that could project into a 3 and D role in the NBA.  Walker can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also is a fairly good defender that can lock down his man.  He’s struggled with his shooting percentages in the past, but Walker shot the ball well this season, and he was a valuable member of Florida State’s team this year. He had a solid senior season, and he is a borderline second round candidate in the 2021 draft.
