Is there any 49er that is more over-rated than Delanie Walker?

What's funny is that every 49er head coach seems to love walker.
Coaches always love a guy that sells himself out on blocks, especially on d-linemen.....a D-Walk is a pro at that....

And sells out on special teams.

Coaches love a number 2 tight end who can block well, excel at special teams, and has speed and some WR abilities.

He is a quality roster spot and is active for every game for the last several years. People need to give the guy a little credit. He made a great athletic play on that TD. If he gets the ball in his hands, he is a play maker.

If there was someone better....they'd be in....D-Walk all the way!!!!
i dont really believe he is overrated..a solid #2 that produces in more ways than stats..hes a vet with experience and id rather have him than an unknown
He's had a few rough pass catching plays this year but he is ridiculously valuable. He does everything well. He's made some blocks this year that made for some long runs and yac that most other TE 2's could not.
He's just having a bad year catching the ball. Still a good player. We will lock him up this offseason.
I've been really hard on Delanie this year, but I'd just like to give him his props for the last game. He was awesome.

in preseason it seems like he always catches Kaep throws...it might be the velocity
Any update on his injury?
Great Game. Walker is a valued member of the squad.
My nephew knows Colin K - saw him at a casino in Reno on the by week - asked him who was the best athelete on the 49ers - and Colin said Delaney Walker was. This surprised our family.
