The Lions were thrilled when they drafted Tracy Walker. They may be even more excited now. Tracy Walker impressed a lot of analysts in 2018. The Lions were thrilled when they drafted him. Pro Football Focus had him as one of the highest-graded safeties despite his limited snap count. The Detroit Lions decided to move on from Glover Quin this offseason, an undoubtable vote of confidence in the young safety. And it turns out the Lions coaching staff got even more out of Walker last season than they expected. “I think Tracy last year—and certainly, last year is last year—but I think he...

Film breakdown: Is Tracy Walker ready for an expanded role?

The safety stood out as a rookie, but can he become a regular contributor in 2019? The big shock of the Detroit Lions 2018 draft was when they selected safety Tracy Walker out of Louisiana in the third round. He was a nearly unheard of prospect, buried away in the Sun Belt conference. Walker started the 2019 season buried once again, deep in the Lions depth chart getting minimal playing time. He played over a third of defensive snaps only once in the Lions’ first 12 contests, but did see a hugely expanded role late in the year as injuries began to pile up and the team began to look...
