walker's versatility gave roman options to try to create mismatchs---whether it be walker making a wham block on an unsuspecting dlineman or getting isolated downfield on a loineback
but niners offense seems to be morphing into a different form with the introduction of kaerpernick as the qb, the pistol and read option etc
it seems to me that tavon austin is a unique talent that might be a guy who replaces walkers on snaps, but in a different way...
with his ability to run as well as catch the ball, he could be put in the slot and catch alot of passes underneath, or take handoffs on the jet fly and other pitch plays...he wouldnt block like walker did but would create mismatches like walker did, but in a different way
The coaching staff did a great job when they switched from Alex Smith to Kaep. Yes, DWalk was important, but the coaching staff will be able to overcome and adapt. They are great at it. I would love to have Tavon Austin, with the signing of Boldin, WR is not as much of a priority as it was.
