He was a two-time All-SWC selection (1963 and 1964), a first team (1964) and third team All-American (1963). He also was an All-Academic selection as mathematics major. As a senior, he played in the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl and the Chicago College All-Star Game.
Walker was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the second round (10th overall) of the 1965 NFL Draft and also in the second round (19th overall) of the 1965 AFL Draft by the Houston Oilers. As a rookie, he was placed on the injured reserve list, after suffering a knee injury while practicing for the Chicago College All-Star Game, which would affect him during the rest of his career (eventually had 3 knee operations).
In 1966, he was moved to tackle because of the depth at the center position and was later placed on the taxi squad, because he wasn't fully recovered from his previous injury. That season, he appeared in the last 5 games, playing mainly on special teams.
Walker became the team's starting center over Dave Manders, playing in all 14 games during the 1968 and 1969 seasons. On September 1st, 1970, after playing with multiple injuries the previous year, he was traded along with Clarence Williams to the Green Bay Packers, in exchange for future hall of famer Herb Adderley.
