Inside Dish: Packers' Walker making a strong case to start

By Dan Pompei - SportingNews


The development of Javon Walker is forcing Packers coach Mike Sherman to make an interesting decision. Walker arguably has been the Packers' best receiver in training camp, and he finished out the 2003 season very strong. So it appears Walker belongs on the field every down. Who will Sherman take off the field to keep Walker on it? It could be Donald Driver, a starter for two seasons and a clutch player. Driver could be an outstanding nickel receiver. Sherman also could bench Robert Ferguson in favor of Walker, but it seems inevitable that Walker, a 2002 first-round pick, and Ferguson, a 2001 second-round pick, will be in the starting lineup together eventually. . . .

Well, I thought so, too, and I think that is really what everyone expected -- What I think the big deal now is for the Packers is where to have everyone on the field and which guy will be losing time as they give Walker the reins.

I thought Walker was atleast No. 2 going into training camp. It was a surprise to me that he was even battling for a starting job.

Exactly.

Javon is being taken way too high in most drafts. I believe before preseason Driver and Ferguson were starters, but as expected Walker has challenged them. I have said this time and time again, this Ahman's team. Even when Favre is throwing the ball he has 4 different viable targets to choose from. Who cares if its Walker's third year, I feel many of his owners will be dissapointed this year.

His draft price is still too high. A guy with a career high of 41 receptions shouldn't be going in the 4th/5th round.

I totally agree, and as we have seen he's the #3 WR right now. Driver is going later, and Ferguson may not even be drafted at all. I think either of those 2 could put up the same #'s as Walker, or close to it, but can be had at a MUCH cheaper price
