IMHO Walton provides an upgrade in intelligence, physicality, and can hold his own as a pass blocker in this system.
I'd love to see Walton come back and succeed but there are serious doubts as to whether that can happen. Can he return to top form after sitting out the majority of two seasons? It's not always a foregone conclusion that a player gets back to where they were at in terms of playing level, let alone the physical/health aspect alone.
