    I love the enthusiasm really hope this guy pans out. One of the things he said that stuck out to me was that he was a second stringer for 7 years? Why only now is he not content with being #2. Just a thought.

    Last year, his drop rate on catchable balls was 30 percent. Double the guy behind him. (cant find the link but thats what I read. (actually i dont feel like looking for it, but i did find this.

    “

    Catch rate 54% (to cooks 61 percent)


    I havent seen him play so I cant say by anything ive seen, but it seems like he is not going be an ok receiver, but hes going to drop some balls. The good thing is he can block very well. Its pretty clear we are going to be running the ball this year.

    I'd be curious to see Walker's catch stats from previous years, maybe last season was an anomaly?

    I've followed the 49ers the last several years. He is a smart guy and a hard worker.

    ...and I cringed every time the ball went in his direction. The downside is that he seemed to not only miss catches, but bat the ball up in the air in the process.

    Ask that question to CJ now and i'm sure his response would be much different. Before free agency, we were a long ways away. Now we have made that gap a tiny bit smaller. We still got a long ways to go...

    With that said, I want honey badger on our team!
