After earning the Doak Walker Award for best running back in the country, Michigan State phenom Kenneth Walker III enters the offseason as our top running back prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. Breece Hall and Isaiah Spiller will draw rave reviews and likely push Walker for the top spot, and don't be surprised if Florida's Dameon Pierce rises up boards in the pre-draft process.
