This is definitely an interesting move.

290lb's and he runs the 40 yard dash in 4.8 seconds and has a wingspan of 84 inches.

Let us get the ugly part about Walls out of the way:

To this point, Walls is best known as one of two players Syracuse coach Scott Shafer kicked off the team in his first months on the job. On March 6, 2013, police charged Walls with felony burglary for entering an unlocked campus apartment and walking out with $950 in electronics while teammate Markus Pierce-Brewster waited in the car. The what is clear: Walls was caught on camera leaving the apartment with a 19-inch television, an Xbox and video games. He and Pierce-Brewster pleaded guilty, successfully completed probation and had the charges dropped to misdemeanor trespassing.

That's extremely worrying, however he did his time and I don't believe you can punish someone for the rest of their life.

He was quoted as saying that had he been at Syracuse this year, he'd be a first round talent and it would be hard to argue with that. He had so much potential and he was made an example of after a dumb decision he made.

Last season he had 10 sacks and 17.5 tackles for a loss. He has immense athletic ability for a man his size. it shows the team is willing to take a risk on some red flag character guys.

He will join a very dominant defensive line and it will be a struggle to work his way up, we'll see how he performs.
