My God. Having not watched much actual film on this kid (more raw stats), this was really fun. I had to run these clips over and over. Walker's like some video game that you get obsessed with. Grand Theft Auto on legs!

I'm very excited to watch KW3 (is that what we're calling him?) score real life TDs for the Hawks and fantasy TDs for me.

He reminds me of Beastmode, but faster! So many broken tackles! Looking forward to watching him.

"Discombobulates, now that's a word I haven't heard in a long, long time." Ahh, our mother taught us that one when we were but young tykes.

"AH-HAHAHA! I LOVE LIFE! WOOOO! I LOVE MY LIFE!!!" Stay enthusiastic, Young Kenneth.

Considering Marshawn was my favorite player to watch in the past, KW3 should be the perfect complement to Lockett and Metcalf when the offense is on the field. Looking forward to it!!

Can't wait for that first opportunity to watch KW3 in a Seahawks uniform in a game

It's hard not to get excited about what this kid has done. Here's hoping he can do something similar at the next level.

I see a lot more Barry Sanders in him than Marshawn. Not that there's no Marshawn, but those ankle-breaking cuts remind me of Sanders.

One of my favorite childhood players, there! Let's hope we have someone as dynamic in Walker. Sanders ran backwards to make space for himself too frequently, oftentimes losing yardage, which I haven't seen Walker do much. Of course when it worked out for Barry, it sometimes *really* worked out.

KW3 is SO elusive. Breece Hall's tape looks great, but I wouldn't trade the two. Walker is knocked for not being a good receiver, but when they threw it his way he seemed to catch it. His balance and vision is otherworldly. He stops and starts so quickly to miss tackles. And his patience might be what really sets him apart at the next level. The only thing I didn't see him do a lot that PC might want out of him was pass-block.

I am trying to figure out what running back I could appreciate without seeing them play
