2020 Mountain West Football Top 50 Players: #24, Boise State CB Jalen Walker
The Boise State cornerback makes it back-to-back Broncos on this year’s list of the conference’s best athletes.
Yet another lockdown corner on the blue.
Boise State cornerback Jalen Walker is the second member of the Broncos’ defensive backfield to land on our countdown of Mountain West football’s best athletes.
2019 was Walker’s first full year as a starter and he thrived almost immediately, leading the team in tackles during their comeback victory over Florida State and eventually finishing the fall with 53 tackles, three tackles for loss, nine passes defended, and a pick-six.
For his efforts, Walker earned a spot on the all-conference second team. Given that Pro Football Focus also graded him out as the fourth-best player at any position in the Mountain West, however, his ceiling in 2020 could be much higher.
