Default Can Gary Walker be our NT?

Walker isn't the pass-rusher he once was...I'm wondering if he couldn't become our NT next year? Any opinions?

If so, then we have more flexibility in either signing Seth or looking to draft for younger NT to develop.

I really would like a more athletic DE in his spot that could help our pass-rush a bit more.

Its possible for him to be NT but with steady decline he might not give much pressure up the middle.

I never thought about that one. It might not be that bad of an idea

I agree. Draft Spears to start at RDE and move Smith to NT. Instant upgrade at 2 positions.

The idea has been brought up quite a few times, and his body type seems to be good for a NT...He may need to add a little more bulk...

Overall, he is (obviously) our least injury-prone d-lineman, so based on that alone, he should at least get a try-out at NT, the most crucial position on the d-line...

In this particular scenario, I believe Walker would be the starter at LDE...With the money we're paying him, he will start unless he's injured, with is very possible...

OK, I can bite on Robaire being a strong possibility at NT, but I'm still thinking that Walker could handle the position and maybe even rejuvenate himself. His short, squatty frame is perfect and his experience as a DT would help.

We could still draft Spears or Shaun Cody and then we have a solid line. Especially if Seth heals and returns.

True, but NT is tough spot and allowing Walker or Smith time in the rotation should only help our line.
