heres another reason. he is probably the best 2nd tight end in the league and probably even better than some starters.
This is the exact kind of b******t that I was talking about. What team would a 6 foot tall TE with questionable hands be starting on? Also, a better 2nd TE than guys like Aaron Hernandez, Jeremy Shockey....hell even Jeff King of Arizona?
Man get Hernandez out of your brain
He was targeted 3 times as much as the standard #2 tight end in the league.
113 targets 79 catches 7 tds
Out of the other top 15 #2 tight ends in the league
Average targets 40
Average catches 25
Average touchdowns 2.4
Shockey had 62 targets 37 catches 4 tds
Jeff King had 34 targets 27 catches 3 tds
6'-7" Kellen Davis 34 targets 18 catches 5 tds
6'-5" Zach Miller 44 targets 25 catches 0 tds
These two lead their teams in receiving at tight end
Walker 35 targets 19 catches 3 tds
Walker was right on pare with any number two tight end in the league
Not bad for a 6'-0" Div II wide receiver drafted in the 6th round
