Quay Walker as Qui-Gon Jinn

Next is Quay Walker as Qui-Gon Jinn because the two names sound similar, and we cannot express how awesome Quay-Gon Jinn sounds.

Both guys are the total package when it comes to their crafts. Jinn is a master Jedi who teaches Obi-Wan Kenobi, finds Anakin Skywalker, and is an excellent fighter. He also beats his own drum even though there was a spot for him on the Jedi Council. Jinn is wise and well respected by his peers, which is also why Walker makes for the perfect comparison.

Walker could have left Georgia, played at another school, and succeeded, but instead, he learned from the best and is now a first-round draft pick. He is also an excellent fighter on the field as Walker can make people miss, and not many get by him.

Jinn was the total package because, while extremely powerful, he chose to follow the path he wanted, and so did Walker. However, Walker is a whole package because he has the size, speed, and instinct needed to be a successful linebacker.

Both are the silent-killer types that often get overlooked, but when their number gets called, they rise to the occasion and usually show they are better than people think.
