Tight end is not a pressing need for this team
Sure it is. When you play 2 TE formations as much as this team does, having a quality scoring threat is just as essential as a good #2 or #3 receiver is for other teams. Walker would be a GREAT #2 TE......for the New York Giants. For the 49ers he'd be better off as the #3 guy and having a big, tall, physical tight-end like Fleener or Green at the #2 position.
You don't think that having a 6'6" sure-handed receiving threat in the end-zone would make this more offense more effective than a 6'0" TE/FB/WR......10 positions, not anything special at any one of them? Delanie Walker as the #3 TE is a very good value and provides good versatility.
Name me the 2nd tight end on the 9ers 1994 team without looking
This is not an offense that needs to get the ball to the number 2 tight end there are only so many passes to go around
In the Walsh style offense the #1WR and the RB are the biggest targets followed by the #1TE and #2 WR
