What are your measurements (height, weight and forty
I am 5’11, almost 6’0. I am 191 pounds. I ran a
4.52 or a 4.53 when I got timed at the Pro Day and
last week at the private workout.
When you were coming out of high school, what
programs showed interest in you?
Oregon State, Arizona State, Fresno State, San Diego
State, Idaho, UCLA and Southern Utah.
Why did you choose Idaho?
Those PAC-12 schools were backing in and out during
the recruiting process. I felt like they didn’t
have too much loyalty towards me. Idaho showed a
lot more loyalty. That was one of the ways why I
got to Idaho.
Tell us about your career at Idaho.
I just think as a team, we could have performed
better for all of those years that I was there.
That is the one thing that still haunts me to this
day. We weren’t really able to compete for a WAC
championship or another bowl game. But it was
definitely a good experience. It taught me a lot.
I got to meet a lot of guys from different areas.
The experience was definitely good. I am glad that
I went there. I just wish that we would have won
What are your strengths on the football field?
My strengths are playing at full speed, not giving
up, knowing my assignments and being to execute it
What areas of your game do you need to improve upon?
Probably being able to know what the offense is
doing and how they are trying to attack. Maybe I
need more film study. I need to be able to dissect
what the offense is trying to do.
What is the highlight of your career?
The biggest play that I made throughout my career
was the interception against LSU. I went 94 yards.
I wasn’t able to score which still haunts me. That
was probably the biggest play of my career. One of
their receivers caught me from behind. I went from
the one- yard line to their four-yard line.
Where are you currently training for the NFL Draft?
It is called Stars in Anaheim, CA. Jason David is
the main guy here. He played in the league for five
Were you happy with the way you performed at the Pro
My Pro Day went well. Personally, there are things
that I wanted to do a little bit better. I feel
that I could have done better with my vertical
jump. I also could have gotten a few more reps on
the bench. But I definitely reached the goals that
I set for myself. Overall it was a blessed day.
With what team did you have the personal workout
There were quite a few teams there. The Bengals,
Bears, Miami, Cleveland, New York and the Raiders.
I was able to perform well. I ran the same forty
time that I did at my pro day. I was in the low
4.5’s. The scouts told my agent that it is exactly
what they wanted to see. A lot of people thought
that I was a 4.6 or a 4.7 guy. Being able to run in
the low 4.5’s was something that I needed to do. I
am confident that I did well in the positional
drills. I take a lot of pride in it.
Alex Khvatov: What is the coolest thing that
you have been able to do during this draft process?
Since a lot of NFL guys are training where I am at,
I am able to pick their brain and get a lot of
information from them. I feel that it is definitely
something cool during this process. Another thing
is just going through this experience. I am able to
have the opportunity.
Who is your favorite NFL player?
Bob Sanders was one of my favorite safeties. I
liked to look at Sean Taylor and Brian Dawkins as
well. Those guys were playing the game at a very
high level. Ed Reed and Earl Thomas are the guys
that I watch now.
Which underclassman on your team should we keep an
eye on in the future?
I would have to say Bradley Njoku. He is a
safety as well. He has two more years at Idaho. He
definitely will have an opportunity. He loves the
game of football.
What do you enjoy the most about playing the game of
It is just fun to go out there. I enjoy hitting
people and running around when I am on the field. I
loved football since I was young. No one made me
pursue football. I just have the love for this
game. The game is fun and exciting.
What are your hobbies?
I like to spend a lot of time with my family. I
missed a lot of time with them when I was in Idaho.
I like going to the beach. I play video games when
I have some free time.
How does it feel to be a small fish in a large
It doesn’t affect me at all. I have been in this
situation my whole life. I understand it and accept
it. I take it how it is. I just use it as
motivation to keep doing my best. I don’t look at
it as a negative. I just look at it as part of
life. It doesn’t bother me. I feel like when I put
my mind to it and focus, it doesn’t matter what
anybody else says.
Finish the sentence, Gary Walker is….
A hard worker. I will do whatever it takes to be
the best. I don’t give up. I have the
determination and dedication. With faith, anything
