I wish the Niners would throw to Walker more often. However this year, they used him more as a decoy this year. Hopefully things open up for him in the offense next year.
With that being said, 100% guaranteed the Niners will draft another TE we need a BIG 6-5 / 6-6 TE that we can throw to like Gronk.
But that doesn't limit Walker because Walker can line up all over the field. Walker is more like an H-back. I'd almost like to see him in the backfield as a FB at times.
Also too, walker lined up as a Tackle, FB, TE, WR, Flanker.......you know how hard it is to play all of those positions or remember all of the different plays. He is a special player and next year he will get more plays.
And yes, his production will go up when we get more weapons. For a lot of the season he made the offense run and wasn't 100% for the championship game. He for sure isn't overrated.
You can say.....he won the Detroit game for us with two key blocks on Suh and a game winning catch.
He was huge in Giants game, I think he was our leading receiver.
He had a lot of key blocks in all of our games. He's a unique player and we need to get him the ball more.
Read the article below and still see if you think that he is overrated.
