Walker meteoroid-Like' at East-West Shrine Game

Posted: Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- Tracy Walker appears to be improving his NFL draft stock at this year's East-West Shrine game in St. Petersburg, Fl.

Emory Hunt is just one of several people covering the game to notice the Cajuns senior safety who recorded 97 tackles, 2 sacks and 2 interceptions this season.

Walker entered the season as a likely second or third round draft pick, but NBC's Rotoworld says the safety's stock fell throughout the year. Something it says could change if Walker continues to shine at this weekend's all-star game.

"Walker was seen as a potential second-to-third round pick coming into the season thanks to his size (6'2/200) and productivity, but has seen his stock drop as the campaign progressed. He did finish with 97 tackles and intercepted two passes, and if he plays well in the Shrine Game activities, he has a chance to reestablish his draft stock," the website said.

The East-West Shrine game will air on The NFL Network Saturday, kickoff is 2 p.m. CST.
