Joe Walker / San Francisco 49ers

Joe Walker is currently an NFL Inside Linebacker with the San Francisco 49’ers and Super Bowl 52 Champion when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. Joe shares what it takes to achieve the long odds of making it and thriving in the NFL. Starting his career at the University of Oregon, Joe lead the Ducks in tackles in 2015 – having started all but five games since the 2013 Alamo Bowl. He had many dynamic plays on the Ducks’ fast-paced defense including two fumbles recovered for touchdowns, one of which was the notorious drop at the 1-yard line by Utah wide receiver Kaelin Clay in the Utah-Oregon game on November 8, 2014. Walker returned 100-yards for an Oregon touchdown. His college successes earned him a spot on the Eagles in 2016. His 2017 season opened with 30-17 win against the then named Washington Redskins. Joe was signed by the Arizona Cardinals in 2018 before moving the 49ers this year.
