To protect and serve

LOS ANGELES -- Massive starting offensive left tackle Aundrey Walker has given thought that once his football days have concluded, he might want to check out a vocation as an FBI agent.

Working for the FBI seems to be in line with his wanting to protect the public, but for the time being, Walker, a sophomore, appears to be the main man in charge of protecting the nation's top college quarterback, senior Matt Barkley.

You get the impression in talking with Walker after a recent practice that he is fully aware of his Barkley protection responsibility, but the big fella out of Cleveland claims that he does not get preoccupied with such a daunting task.
