Travon Walker is rumored to be the No. 1 overall pick.

As we start counting down the hours until the draft, it's highly likely Georgia's defensive lineman, Travon Walker, will emerge as the No. 1 overall pick and land a spot with the Jacksonville Jaguars. On April 25, ESPN reported that the 21-year-old surged past Michigan's Aidan Hutchinson and became the consensus favorite across various betting books.

Additionally, ESPN's Todd McShay reported on April 25 that the Jaguars favored Travon over Aidan, stating that "Jacksonville prefers the upside and traits of [Travon] Walker over the proven production, motor, and leadership that [Aidan] Hutchinson brings to the table."

"But [Travon]'s versatility, length, speed, explosion, and strength could be the difference for the Jaguars," Todd added. "Execs around the NFL tell me Jacksonville just loves his upside, even though [Travon] (six sacks and 29 pressures) didn't fill the stat sheet like [Aidan] did in 2021."
