Travon Walker reportedly had a busy build up to the draft.

Walker, who was selected No. 1 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars, was involved in a car crash prior to the start of Thursday’s draft, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

“Travon Walker was in a serious car accident in Athens, GA before the draft, crashing into two parked cars, per me and Tom Pelissero,” Rapoport tweeted following the pick. “He emerged without injuries. No citations. But a scare for sure.”

Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports later clarified that the incident was not as serious as the original report suggested. The source? Walker himself, who said it was just a “little fender bender.”

Walker recorded 61 tackles, 9.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble throughout his career at Georgia.
