The Jaguars finally addressed offense, wide receiver in particular with another local product, Mike Walker from the University of Central Florida. Walker was headed toward a very productive collegiate career when he was derailed somewhat by a torn ACL in December of 2005. Walker had surgery shortly thereafter, and had a big senior season with 90 receptions for 1178 yards, and seven touchdowns. Walker started wowing NFL front offices at the scouting combine when he ran a 4.35/40 yard dash.
At 6'2", 200 lbs., Walker is one of the Jaguars smallest wide receivers, but his speed will likely make him the fastest. Walker has nice leaping abilities, and body control, and he is able to make plays in traffic. Walker is known to have great hands, and that's something that the Jaguars can certainly use. Walker will have his work cut out for him being that he will have to challenge Reggie Williams, Matt Jones, Ernest Wilford, and Dennis Northcutt for playing time.
