Quay Walker will join De'Vondre Campbell as the Packers' inside linebacker duo.
The Green Bay Packers drafted Georgia linebacker Quay Walker with their first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday night.
For years, the Packers overlooked off-the-ball linebacker. A super-tandem could be formed by re-signing All-Pro De'Vondre Campbell and selecting a tall, athletic prospect in the first round.
His Georgia teammate, receiver George Pickens, was also bypassed.

No turnover plays in 52 games didn't match the production (17 starts). In 15 starts last season, he intercepted three passes, his first three in college.
Walker had 1.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss in 67 tackles as a senior. He also had three interceptions in 52 games.
Pro Football Focus ranked him 75th in his draught class with 32 stops. Green Bay's win-loss grading system. A first-and-10 tackle that stops the play at 3 yards is a win.
