SMU Pro-Day: Measured at 6’6” 259 and ran a 4.56 40 yard dash with a 37” vertical jump.

With Jared Cook moving on can't believe that people aren't talking about this guy. Measurables off the charts for a TE, showed good blocking skills (better than Cookie) Year 1 and flashed receiving potential.

One thing that could hold him back is the QB play of Locker who has been inconsistent at best, but Thompson seems to have all the tools and mental toughness to be a 3 down TE.

I own Thompson in my dynasty league and the Walker signing really doesn't concern me much. Just like the Myers signing doesn't concern me much regarding Adrien Robinson. Teams are going more and more to two-TE sets, and frankly, I think the two 2nd year guys have much more talent than the veterans that were signed. I think Walker is a decent TE, but his value is tied more to his Swiss army knife-type skillset. Great for the Titans, but not so much for fantasy owners. That being said, I think 2014 is when we'll know if Thompson (and Robinson) is the real deal or not, although I do expect to see a few flashes this season of things to come.

Have Thompson on one of my dynasty teams and will probably stash Robinson as well. Gotta stash these sleepers early because once the hype starts it will be too late. Kind of like I wish I had stashed Kapernick last year just before Smith went down. Still kicking myself about that.

They aren't paying Walker, a sub 4.5 TE and excellent blocker,  8M guaranteed to sit on the bench and cheer for Thompson.

Both are definitely worth holding, but I think Robinson's got an easier track to consistent playing time.

I agree that Walker isn't going to be sitting the bench since he brings other valuable skills to the table, it's just that I think Thompson is going to ultimately prove to be the more valuable fantasy asset by the time 2014 rolls around. Walker's size and skills are better suited to an H-back type of role, imo.

6 foot nothing and 240.....limited upside. If you think he's so great draft him on you FF teams......that's what I thought.

Walker is one of those players that coaches love but fantasy players don't. He's versatile and ex-players like Munchak love guys like that. Thompson will barely be a TE2 this year but I'll be watching for sure when he's on the field.
GO VIKES!!!!!!!

I will pick up Walker for my PPB (point per block) league.

if this guy catches a pass in the first preseason game ... this thread has GZ 2012 potential.
