Kenneth Walker III had his first NFL career start with the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Seahawks played the Arizona Cardinals in an NFC West showdown.

Donning the same number that he wore in college, Walker posted over 50 yards rushing in the first half. He was even seen making a cut upfield that went for 34 yards. Both teams were 2-3 heading into Week 6.

The Seahawks drafted Walker out of Michigan State with the fourth pick in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Coming into the game Walker had 146 yards rushing with 1 touchdown on the season.

Walker stepped into the spotlight after Rashaad Penny injured his fibula and ankle which required season-ending surgery. It’s still just the first half, but Walker is making a good impression at Lumen Field.

Walker led the Spartans in rushing yards (1,636) in his final year in East Lansing. If what he did in college can translate to the NFL, watch out.
