Tyrunn Walker is another guy we have been pumping up all week, and for good reason. Walker has had his issues finding a home in the new 3-4 defense, but against the Chiefs he showed he has made it his own.

Walker had no issues against Kansas City lining up at both defensive tackle and defensive end. He only recorded three tackles, but the disruptive pressure Walker was able to put on quarterbacks was hard to miss.

Considered a long shot by many, Walker has now earned his keep on what is a deep offensive line. Unless his performance falters in the coming games, Walker has showed the promise that is worth keeping around.
