Tyrone Walker and the Lonely Highlights
Make no mistake: nobody’s going to write home about a five catch, 41 yard performance.
But on a night when the Packers failed to score a single point (regardless of what replays might show on James Starks’ ill-fated goal line plunge), Tyrone Walker’s stat line was the lone bright spot.
The undrafted rookie out of Illinois State isn’t especially big or fast, but he found the right spot often enough to snag five passes in his first significant professional action.
Up until the first days of training camp, rookie seventh round picks Charles Johnson and Kevin Dorsey were expected to be the main contenders for the last spots at the bottom of the Packers’ wide receiver depth chart. Both possess enviable size and speed, but they both succumed to injures on day two of training camp and have hardly been heard or seen since.
