Devontez Walker, the North Carolina standout wide receiver, made significant waves in the college football landscape with his explosive play and consistent performances, particularly in his junior year after transferring from Kent State.
Note that he posted bonkers numbers at Kent State with a 50% dominator rating in 2022 with 11 TD and nearly 1,000 receiving yards. That single-season dominator rating was the BEST among any WR in the class.
At 6'2″ and weighing 193 lbs, Walker possesses the agility, speed, and long-stride ideal for a receiver who can excel both on the outside and in the slot, offering versatility to any offensive scheme as a big-play merchant.
Walker showcased his dynamic playmaking ability, culminating in a 2023 junior year that saw him amass impressive statistics with 41 receptions for 699 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 17 yards per catch in just eight games.
He earned a 22% dominator rating for his efforts, but over the games he was eligible to play, Tez Walker hung at a prorated 33% dominator rating with future NFL QB Drake Maye under center. He has a top-5 overall prorated dominator rating among his draft-eligible teammates.
His ability to consistently produce big plays downfield made him a focal point of the Tar Heels' offense and a nightmare for opposing defenses. The downside is he doesn't offer much if anything after the catch.
Shows signs of Marvin Jones in his game. There's an upside in his profile. He's got wheels with 4.36 speed. Also, can jump out of the building: 40.5″ vertical (93rd percentile) and 134″ broad jump (97th percentile). Both were top-5 testing numbers in the 2024 WR class.
Tez Walker screams like a boom-or-bust product that needs a optimal landing spot to avoid being a disappointment.
