Jason Wolf of the Tennessean reported that Titans tight end Delanie Walker firmly believes that he is the top tight end in the entire National Football League. Wolf broke the news on the first of June.
“Honestly, I feel like I’m the best tight end in the league in all phases,” Walker said. “Blocking, run blocking, catching the ball, breaking tackles, stuff like that. At the end of the day, if you don’t feel like that you shouldn’t be in the league.”
In 2017 Walker had 74 grabs for 807 yards. That totals to 10.9 yards per reception. On top of that, he had three touchdown receptions in 2017. His best season overall statistically was in the year 2015. During that year he had 94 receptions for 1,088 yards. On top of that, in 2015, Walker had six touchdown snags.
As far as things are concerned in the touchdown department, Walker’s best season in terms of touchdowns was in 2016. In 2016 Walker snared seven balls for touchdowns.
Walker was drafted in the 2006 draft by the 49ers. He was the 175th pick and was picked up in the sixth round. From 2006-2012 Walker was with the San Francisco 49ers. He has been with the Titans ever since 2013. For the entirety of his career, Walker has 479 catches for 5,621 yards. For his career he has 34 touchdown receptions.
Walker is coming off a pro bowl season last year and is looking to keep up the productivity.
